Local Entrepreneurs Hope To Profit From Long Black Friday Lines
Before they even had a chance to digest their Thanksgiving meal, Black Friday shoppers were out in droves waiting for stores to open.
A group of local college students decided it would be the perfect opportunity to make a buck.
“I came here last year and it got really cold. I wished I could have had a hot cup of coffee or hot chocolate, so we decided to try and sell it to the people waiting in line,” said Tyler Odle, a student at Calhoun Community College.
The booth cost them about $200, with hopes of earning a profit as the chilly night wore on and the line grew.
The Black Friday shoppers knew exactly what they were there for Thursday night, many waiting to get their hands on a 40 inch flat screen TV.
Others had computers, tablets, video games and phones on their lists.
Despite the dropping temperatures, shoppers say its worth it for the deals.
