Electronic devices and gadgets continue to remain a popular item on holiday wish lists for men and women alike.

To satisfy these electronic needs, many customers shop at Best Buy, one of the top stores in America for holiday electronics.

Best Buy in Ahwatukee Foothills, is no exception.

Phillip Kelly, manager at the Ahwatukee Best Buy, advises his customers to start shopping as early as they can to avoid the rush.

He noted the big items featured this year will be tablet computers, cell phones, 3-D televisions, gaming systems and MP3 players.

"This time of year, everything sells fast," Kelly said, adding that there are many popular electronic gadgets available for people of all ages this season. "We are going to have some great prices this year online and in store."

He recommends tablets and MP3 players for children and teenagers.

In addition, Kelly said the educational LeapFrog games are available for younger children.

The Kinect for Xbox 360, he said, is a great game system to keep children active.

Best Buy also offers an extended return policy. Kelly said that beginning this week; everything each customer buys can qualify for the holiday return policy.

Due to this policy, he said that each purchase could be returned until Jan. 24.

Another bonus, Kelly added, is that customers are able to price match Best Buy with any other competitor.

This year, Best Buy is opening at midnight on Thanksgiving so customers can shop earlier.

As an extra bonus, the store is showing "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" in the parking lot for all shoppers to view while waiting in line.

Kelly said that buyers would be able to line up as early as 10 p.m., and that refreshments and snacks would be provided.

"(It) should be a really cool event for all involved," Kelly said.
