JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Black Friday is only a few days away, but many shoppers are already planning where they will do most of their shopping.  

Some people say this year they are finding just as many bargains online than in the stores.

"I think online is better because it's not that crowded," said Kimber Munoz.  "It's cheaper online, but in stores, you can get some good stuff."

 "I think there's more of a selection online, but I think there're better deals in person," said Kaylan Wilson.   

"I'll get out there early, but I don't think I'm going to be fighting people about it," said Ranique Daniel.  

Other shoppers say having sales on Thanksgiving is cutting into family celebrations.

"Some stores have sales on Thanksgiving, and I don't think that's worth it," said  Gabby Munoz.  "I just think that day should be a family day."  

"Why go out and fight crowds when you could be at your house creating memories," said added.
