Trevor MacDonald and Jesse Pierfelice met three years ago while waiting in line outside a SuperTarget in Hurst on Black Friday.
A Hurst couple is getting married after meeting three years ago while waiting in a Black Friday line.
Trevor MacDonald and Jesse Pierfelice 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,'" Pierfelice said.
After realizing the "bum" was actually a hard-working college student, Pierfelice 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 Pierfelice 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.
