Concert tickets, store openings, electronics and Black Friday are among the events that bring long lines to West Michigan.

What's the longest you've waited in line to buy something?

Last year, the line at Best Buy on Alpine started about ONE WEEK EARLY for Black Friday!  That's some serious waiting time.

West Michigan has recently had long lines for new restaurants, concerts, beer, and much more.

I think I waited about 8 hours for concert tickets once.  Other than that, my longest waits have been about 1-2 hours.

It used to be waiting was your best option to get tickets to major events.  Now, all you need is a few computers when tickets go on sale.  StubHub offers a back-up plan.

Store openings, Black Friday, and electronics are a different story.  I've managed to stay away from most of those lines, so far...
