As for the Houston family of Destin, who were way back in the line, they were not losing heart.
“I’ve done this the last five or six years,” said Melissa Houston, who was joined by daughters Delancey and Rylee and husband Lance.

“It just kind of gets you in the spirit,” of the holidays, Melissa said. “It gets you ready,” Delancey chimmed in.
“It’s like going to a ball game kind of fun,” Lance said.

For Daniel Roman and Nathan Cook of Destin it was their first time to venture out on Black Friday eve.

“This is our first camp out,” Roman said.

Cook was looking to get a TV, laptop or I-pad.

“I want to have a huge TV for football and basketball.” And by 11:15 p.m. he had his voucher for a 65-inch TV.

Haesol Jung drove all the way from Troy, Ala., for a chance at a television.
