Shoppers piled into the Toys "R" Us in Clarence this Thanksgiving, as the doors at the store opened at 5:00 p.m.

Some patrons had been waiting in line to get into the store since the early morning hours.

Some say they skipped their Thanksgiving meal to get in line early. Others tell 7 Eyewitness News this "Grey Thursday" shopping is tradition.

The store was giving away door buster deals. Employees say about 40 percent of the store is on sale this Black Friday.

Among the hot items this season, XBox 1, Play Station 4, Frozen, and Skylanders.
