Call it the calm before the storm at this South Lansing Target store.

"We'll be here until the middle of the night getting prepared for the morning Friday," Annelise Christensen of Target said.

Christensen said it's all hands on deck as employees get ready for Black Friday. She said shoppers should like what they find.

"The ad hasn't been released yet, but we're going to have a lot of deals on electronics, movies, and DVDs," Christensen said.

While Target is being tight-lipped until Thanksgiving, other stores like Best Buy, Staples and Walmart have put their Black Friday deals online well in advance.

"It does make it a lot easier online," Dyanne Dean said. "I have looked it up and price compared."

No matter the item or the deal you find in person or online, it's best to know the stores return policy in advance because each store differs and they are the strictest with electronics.

"You have 90 days with a receipt," Christensen said of Target's policy, "If you're looking to return a DVD or movie, it has to be unopened to be returned."

Best Buy gives shoppers 14 days to return computers and digital cameras, 30 days for most everything else.

There's a 15 day limit at Walmart for computers, digital cameras, and gps devices, and it all must be returned in it's original packaging.

A lot of work goes into Black Friday, and a lot of preparation, but to some price-savvy shoppers, it's well worth it.

"I'm going to have Thanksgiving dinner, then I'm going to go to bed early," Shopper Margaret said.
