After waiting in line for 12 hours at the Towson Walmart to get deals on 50 inch TVs, printers and a laptop, Diane Townes hadn't expected this.
As the Owings Mills nurse shivered in the cold at 5:30 Friday morning, the Emerson TV she'd bought for $298 would not fit in her car. Walmart workers tried the trunk and back seat to no avail, then suggested she remove it from the box.
She finally folded down her backseats and shoved it through the trunk.
Her niece, Deshawn Moody, who'd stood in line with her and also bought a TV, had to take her large purchase out of the box and wrap it in a quilt in her own car.
The two women and their friend said they spent the entire night in the store standing in line, talking and sipping coffee.
"It was worth it," Townes said.
