GLENDALE -- As the employee's inside Kohl's got ready for the biggest shopping day of the year, outside a line formed with bargain hunters ready to score a discounted deal, Thursday evening. 

Michael Shipman was first in line. He started waiting at 3:30 p.m., an hour and a half before the doors opened. 

"I chose this place because Walmart and Target have really long lines always and the Kohls Cash," said Shipman. 
This was his first year shopping on Thanksgiving Day. He went to snag a PlayStation 4, cookware and clothes. 

"It was so worth it! I won't do it again but, worth it," said Shipman.  

As soon as the doors opened at 5:00 p.m., friends BJ Panta and RJ Roshi rushed to the electronics section. They saved their money for two months in order to purchase the $200 PlayStation consul. It was a popular item that sold out quickly. 

"It was rowdy people were jumping at each other," said Roshi.   

According to the National Retail Federation, 35 million people are expected to shop on Thanksgiving Day. 

The doors opened at 5:00 p.m.
