His dad, Robert, said they had done the Black Friday standing in line thing a couple of times, “but hope this is the last.”
Although they were in line when most folks were sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner with their families, they didn’t miss out on the meal.

“We had Thanksgiving dinner brought in from Niceville … we just tailgated,” Rob said.

When it’s all said and done, however, Rob said, “I’m looking forward to watching football and the University of Miami win.”

The Gainer girls of Crestview got to Best Buy about 4 p.m. Thursday and were looking to snag a laptop and TV.

“This is our first time,” Rachel Gainer said. “We’re espresso coffee-ed up and ready to go.

Joining Rachel, Brittany and Angela Gainer was their friend, Louis Hernandez.

“I figured I might as well try it out one time,” Louis said. “It may be the first and last time.”
