Sept. 12 Knoxville had the grand opening of their new and improved McDonald’s. The town survived the summer without Big Macs, as construction was taking place. This may not seem like a big deal to the average person, but for some fast food lovers, this was a deal of a lifetime. The reason: the first 100 customers in line received a free value meal once a week, for a year.
Senior Shaylynn Reed was one of the first in line, camping out at 9 p.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday. “We were the only people there. Every hour more people showed up. We had sort of a campout fiesta. There was even a full sized grill,” said Reed. Customers swarmed the new building in hopes of receiving the sweet deal while others simply wanted to enjoy the taste of a juicy double cheeseburger in a new atmosphere. ”It was very nice. Hardwood floors. Everything was digitalized,” said Reed.
