Camping out for a good deal

There were only about 30 people in line Thanksgiving afternoon at the Best Buy store in Peachtree City. But they were ready for the store’s Black Friday opening at midnight. First in line since Monday, complete with tent, were Sharpsburg residents Robby and Brandy Hammond, at right, followed by Fayetteville resident Xavier Bryant, seated at the rear near his tent, who arrived on Tuesday, and Sharpsburg resident Harrison Schaefer who arrived for the early shopping event on Wednesday.
