Joe Jaszewski took some brilliant photos of the morning crowds at Nordstrom Rack.
Here are a couple of my favorites. But you'll definitely want to check out our photo gallery.
Spotted in this photo: a man who arrived early to shop for his wife who couldn't make it, and a woman who took the day off work and "dragged" her daughter along.
In this photo, Kristen Gardner, winner of a 90-second, $2,000 shopping spree, runs barefoot through the Rack and loads up her cart. Gardner wasn't wearing athletic shoes Thursday morning, when she found out she won the spree. She and a friend got running shoes at the starting line, but Gardner decided to go barefoot anyway.
