"It's going to be spectacularly successful we expect it to be our best ever," said Evan Gill, Home Sales Manager of Best Buy.
According to market research firm "Shopper Trak" last years Black Friday spending rose to 39.3% throughout the U.S.
That's a record high of 11.4 billon dollars spent, all within the weekend after thanksgiving.
Evan Gill of Best Buy said, "Last year the line made it all the way around the building and it's a 45 thousand square foot building so that's a ridiculous amount of people."
Best Buy will be opening its doors at midnight on thanksgiving, along with many other big stores and shops within the mesa mall.
"Our black Friday actually starts on 8 pm on Thanksgiving Day, we're open for 26 hours straight, so we have a lot of time for customers to come in and shop, we're anticipating a fairly decent rush right at eight o'clock when we open up," said the GM for Sears, Jeff long.
This year, electronics are the hot items to keep your eye on.
"Our electronics business this year is going to be huge," added Long.
Items such as TV's, Blu-Ray disk players, cameras and GPS systems should all be dipping in price.
Best Buy is excited about its black Friday TV special, a 40 inch national brand TV for one hundred and eighty dollars.

Olivia Conrardy, assistant manager of Turbo Graphics said, "be calm take your time because you never know how crazy people can get, and just don't run anybody over."
"I would say be early," adds Long.
Gill said, "Don't think that if you're the hundred or thousandth person in line that you're going to get the best deal, because you're only going to go home disappointed. Do your homework, plan come see us early so you can get what you want."
