Sara Nebeker, Chino Valley, helps her sister, Monika Shepard, Prescott, try on shoes as the two try to spend the $500 gift certificate they won Friday morning at the Grand Opening of Dick's Sporting Goods in Prescott Valley. They snuggled together under a down comforter as they stood in line from 3:50 a.m. until the 8 a.m. opening to be among the first 100 people to receive mystery gift cards, and won the grand prize of $500, which they were sharing. "This is better than Black Friday, because you can win a prize," Monika said, adding, "And it's sister bonding time." Sara said she would get rock climbing equipment for her husband, Travis, with her half of the prize, while Monika focused on shoes.
