It takes a special person to wait outside a shop to be first at something.

If you were thinking of ambling over to Manoa Shopping Center in Havertown today to win a year's worth of doughnuts by being first in line at the Krispy Kreme doughnut shop opening Tuesday, April 9, you lost.

Timothy Folkomer, a retired geologist and teacher who lives nearby, got there Sunday morning.

He told the local Patch site that he would give his weekly winnings to friends and organizations.

Great beer bars, by the numbers

Assuming that Folkomer sticks around, note that the next 99 customers win free doughnuts each month for a year, and the next 100 customers will get a free shirt.
