A trip to get some Diet Coke turned into a spur-of-the-moment adventure for two cousins from Robertsdale who were first in line at the Academy Sports + Outdoors store opening in Foley on Friday.

Struck with a hankering to be among the store’s first 150 customers to receive mystery gift cards valued between $20 and $500, Destiny and Lauren Tompkins lined up at 8 p.m. Thursday for the 8:30 a.m. opening.
