"Black Friday" started at 3 AM

(Photograph removed upon request)

Many stores in Eagan and across the USA opened their doors early to jumpstart their Christmas shopping season. Kohls in Town Centre opened at 3 am with over 400 earlybird specials. (I slept in until 9 am)

This store security guy followed me out of their store and inquired about my photo. When I told him that I'm with the Eagan Daily Photo blog, he lightened up.

  1. Great idea to use your "press credentials" with the guard. Was he afraid you were stealing trade secrets?

    Darryl and Ruth : )

  2. I hope you were wearing your press credentials. There should be no question as to your legitimacy with your official press pass. You are, after all, a "Local Media Person of Interest..." SHEESH!

  3. Boy, being a member of the press really opens doors for you! I think you should use that more to your advantage. Maybe Sarah Palin's book tour next, eh?

  4. A little paranoid I guess! I slept until 9 too.

  6. Wow, what an uptight guy. I have never had that happen, "knock on wood." In answer to your post on my blog it was in the 30's last night and by an ex Phoenicians standards that is pretty darn cold. Have a great weekend!

  7. What Lois said. I really hate people like that guy. But if you buy him a Christmas present I'm sure he will be happy again.

  9. Wow! 3 a.m. sounds insanely early to shop... I hope I never have to wake up that early to shop :-)

    Happy festive season.

  10. Do people really go out at 3 in the morning to shop? I slept until nearly 9.30. We have Boxing Day sales but our shops open at normal hours.

  13. Boy, this is the wonder security guy wishing and hoping you would remove this photo because you seem to not think of ones safety! I could have people track me down and find me this way. Hence, I was able to find it. Kind of like the way Police Officers don't post their phone numbers and address inside the phone book. Please come inside Kohl's and do all the shopping you want to but take down this picture.
