HOLLAND, Mich. (AP) - A high school in western Michigan turned out to be a popular unofficial Apple store.

With 200 people in line by dawn, the Holland school district sold hundreds of used Apple products before the doors were supposed to open at 9 a.m. Thursday.

Superintendent Brian Davis says some people camped Wednesday night. He tells the Holland Sentinel (https://bit.ly/1ILvGze ) that he decided to start selling 90 minutes before the scheduled opening. He compared it to the annual Thanksgiving shopping blitz.

Davis says anyone who wasn’t at Holland High School by 7 a.m. wasn’t going to get anything. The district was selling computers and tablets to the public to make room for new technology.

Some people were disappointed. Gregory Purple Jr., a third-shift worker, says he was too late to buy.
