By Bill McElhinney Johnny and Jasmine Hogeboom were determined to be the first customers in the new Blenheim Kmart store, so they arrived outside the doors at 9pm Wednesday. When Kmart opened at 8am yesterday, the pair raced through to make the first purchases in the new Blenheim store. Eager customers waited outside in the chilly dark yesterday morning, some of them having been there since 3am. Most of the others arrived between 6am and 7am, and were greeted with a rousing haka from Queen Charlotte College students as they streamed through the doors at 8am. Continued on page 2.
Johnny Hogeboom was determined to be the first through the door when Blenheim Kmart opened at 8am yesterday. A crowd of eager customers, some of who had been queuing for hours, was right behind him.
