The Goody's Grand Opening

Thursday was the Goody's grand opening in Somerset, Kentucky. I decided to go because they were giving away this free tote to the first 150 customers. I called my mom to see if she wanted to go with Trinity and me and she said yes. They opened at 9 and we live about 30 minutes away so we decided to leave at 7:30. I am not used to getting up that early! We got there around 8:00 and there was already 13 people in line. I wasn't expecting that. I figured we would be the first. In the end, there was probably 100 people in line to go into the store.

The president of Goody's was there and he would come out periodically and see how many people was lined up. He was a little on the loopy side. Lol. I saw dollar signs in his eyes!

The Somerset Chamber of Commerce was there and they had a ribbon cutting ceremony. But before they cut the ribbon, the president had to do the "give me a G, O, O, D, Y, S" cheer. He even danced! Ha ha. It was quite funny!

We had a good time standing in line for an hour and the tote we got for free was pretty neat. All I bought was a Yankee Candle air freshener for my car though. They moved into the building that Peebles was in. Basically Peebles just changed names to Goody's. They had all the same things. It was nothing like the old Goody's. It was fun though and our picture might even be in the paper! We will have to see!

This is all the people lined up!

This is the crazy president doing his cheer!
