Door-buster deals without having to bust the door

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Black Friday is just a few days away and as some stores prepare to give away great deals, they hope to do so with less chaos than years past. 

With chaotic scenes playing out every year on Black Friday and people camping out for days just to snag a deal, some retailers are trying things a little differently in 2015. 

"Here at Walmart, it's all about deals, simplicity and availability,” said Walmart spokesperson Scott Markley.

Take Walmart for example, the majority of its Black Friday deals will be available online starting Thursday. 

"Walmart is also offering a one hour guaranteed on some of their special items," said Markley. "If you’re in a special section of the store between 6 and 7, you're guaranteed to get that item you’re interested in.”

If that isn't enough, wristbands will be handed out so people don't have to fight over hot ticket items, like a $399 iPad Air or a $59 FitBit. 

Elsewhere, Target and Best Buy are rolling out Black Friday deals right now if you want to beat the crowds. 

"How much easier could it be to be at home, in the comfort of your home not having to worry about being pushed, shoved, or anything else that happens and be able to get the deals right then and there," said Walmart shopper Dawn Snyder.

Still, there are those who like the thrill of in store shopping, in which case, experts say plan to plan ahead and now which stores are open and when. 

“We want to provide great products for our customers, however they want to shop,” said Markley.

Walmart is open today through Black Friday. Meanwhile, retail officials say they hire extra security this time of year in case things get to be a little too chaotic. 

According to the National Retail Federation, more than 135 million Americans will shop over the Thanksgiving weekend.
