Cottage Grove, Woodbury-area shoppers find Black Friday bargains and buddies


Cody Becker drove to the Woodbury-area Best Buy on Wednesday, Nov. 21, from Hastings expecting to find unbeatable deals on electronics.

What he didn't expect to do was make a few friends along the way. Becker, along with Cottage Grove resident Mark Scherr and St. Paul man Andrew Summy, were first in line at the Oakdale Best Buy awaiting Black Friday deals. The three were strangers, but said they had reached buddy status by Thanksgiving Day.
