Randy Middleton was a man on a mission.
He had a list of electronic equipment he wanted for his family, and he wasn't going to take no for an answer.
"Last year, when I went to the sale, the line was so big, I didn't even go," the Pensacola father of three said. "This year, I decided I was going to beat the line."
And he did. Middleton was the first in line at Best Buy in Pensacola for Black Friday shopping. In fact, he spent Wednesday night and all day Thursday on the sidewalk at Cordova Mall to be the first customer let in to at 5 a.m. today.
