Winners Grand Opening - Bedford Commons

This morning, my sister and I got up at the crack of dawn to go to the grand opening of Winners at the Bedford Commons. Ok, that is a lie...we woke up around 6:55am and arrived shortly after 7:30am. We felt pretty intense though! The store wasn't supposed to open until 9am!

So what was the incentive? Gift cards (ranging from $10-$100) for the first 100 people in line! We managed to be within the first 25.

I got $10...woot woot!

And Sarah got $75!!! I think this was God's way of rewarding her after I dragged her out of bed this morning and forced her to go with me :P.

The manager took pity on everyone waiting in the mist and let us all enter the store around 8:40. As we walked in, the entire staff was clapping their hands and cheering us on. And of course, my purse set off the security towers at the entrance. Humiliation galore!

My sister and I ended up splitting the winnings. Wow, that makes us sound like gamblers! Haha. I got 2 shirts and we bought mom a brand new exercise mat (not pictured).

Sarah tried a few things on but there wasn't anything that struck her. I guess she'll just have to hold tightly onto those gift cards until a later date...or else they might mysteriously go missing ;)

All this happened before 10am. I would say it's been a fairly productive morning!

Have you ever been to a store's grand opening? What's the best deal you've ever gotten?

  1. I really want to go to a store grand opening! A Henry's opened up near me last summer and I totally wanted to go, but I had work :( It was such a bummer, because they were giving away free groceries!
