Tina Teague arrived at 5 a.m. yesterday at a Kohl’s Corp. store in Greensboro, North Carolina, armed with more than $200 in gift cards from Wal-Mart Stores Inc., Dick’s Sporting Goods Inc. and Pier 1 Imports Inc.

“No lines, that’s what we like,” said Teague 42, who last month waited for more than two hours in a checkout queue at a Gap Inc. Old Navy location on Black Friday.
