Couple to wed after meeting in Target's Black Friday line
According to Indiana's NBC affiliate 14 News, a Texas couple is getting married after meeting three years ago while waiting in Target's Black Friday line.
Trevor MacDonald and Jesse Pier-Felice were looking for a lot of things while sitting in the rain outside of a Hurst SuperTarget three years ago, but the one thing they weren't expecting to find was each other.
"He had this hoodie tied tight, and my mom dropped me off, and I was like, 'You're not leaving me here with this guy. He looks like a bum,'" Pier-Felice said.
After realizing the "bum" was actually a hard-working college student, Pier-Felice decided to give him a chance. The pair found themselves wrapped up in conversation for the next several hours and, when the doors finally opened at 6 a.m., they exchanged numbers.
"She text-messaged me the next day saying, 'Hey, Target Boy,'" MacDonald said. "That's what she used to call me -- 'Target Boy.'"
The couple's relationship began with casual phone calls and then a few dates. Two years later, MacDonald proposed. "After I proposed to her, the first place we went was Target and took some pictures of our engagement," he said.
MacDonald and Pier-Felice said what they found that cold November morning was better than any bargain they could've asked for. "Yes -- the ultimate Black Friday present; I got a good deal," MacDonald said.
