SACO, Maine (AP) - Maine residents are camping out a full day in advance to prepare for the state’s first ever Krispy Kreme in Saco.

The store is scheduled to open Tuesday at 6 a.m. following a ribbon-cutting ceremony with city officials. Festivities celebrating the opening began Monday, with live music, movies and prizes.

Officials said prizes included a year of free doughnuts to the first 100 people in line.

Robert Briggs, the executive director of Saco Main Street, says the first customers staked out a place in line around 3 a.m. Monday.

Krispy Kreme hired more than 70 employees for the Saco store. Cort Mendez, the franchise owner, is also opening a Krispy Kreme shop in Auburn.
