..."If you're going to get what you want, you've got to get it early."At Goody's, the parking lot was packed at 9 a.m., as were the aisles. "We've been very busy," said Denise Little, Goody's cashier. "We've got lots of great sales and doorbusters, and we're handing out 10 percent off coupons."

Goody's was a little busier last year, but this year's sales were still good. Assistant Manager Keith Richardson said customers were waiting outside for the store to open its doors at 6 a.m.

headed to Goody's Family Clothing. Store manager Pam Rachels said a crowd was waiting when the store opened an hour earlier.

Rachels said the store does the majority of its sales during the holiday season and expects a better turnout than last year.
“It's been better the entire year,” she said. “People are willing to spend more.”
