The guy in the tent and the guy behind him said they'd arrived at the Dedham Best Buy at 10 p.m. on Wednesday to pick up some stuff for their families, in particular, AirPods and Playstations. At 11:45 p.m. on Thursday, the line, such as it was, didn't even reach to the end of the front of the store, unlike in years past, when it would stretch along the side of the building and curl around the back.
There were more people at the Walpole Walmart, where the first guy in line said he got there around 5 p.m. today in a quest for DVDs, followed by a couple of guys who got there at 6 p.m. hoping to snag some cheap TVs. But, still, there were far fewer people than in previous years - the parking lot was not even half full as midnight approached.
