I can’t remember ever being one of the first ones in line for a “Grand Opening” where I received wonderful give-away items. I may be forgetting something. But I really don’t think I have ever been one of the firsts.
This morning was the official Grand Opening of the Dollar General in our small town. The first 100 (or something) people received a reusable shopping bag and a cup. The first 50 (or something) people received a $10 gift card to use in the store.
In this morning’s craziness of preparing for the Expo, I was thinking we would skip the Grand Opening. But, I had told the kids about it and they wanted to go. We don’t live far. So I took a brief pause from my Expo-preparations and we drove to the store. There was a line outside the store when we pulled in around 8:01 am. The store opened at 8. Even with the line, we were still in the first group to get a gift card! And when we checked out, we received the reusable bag and the cup!
Tonight I am thankful for “first in line” freebies at the grand opening this morning! I greatly enjoy free stuff! And we used the gift card for snacks that we ate during the Expo! It was great timing!
