CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

A new Caribou Coffee store opened in Cedar Falls early Thursday morning with more than 100 people waiting outside the door.

The University Avenue store promised free coffee for a year to the first 100 people in line.  There were more than 120 there, including some who staked out a spot at 9 p.m. on Wednesday.

One woman, on her way to the College Square HyVee, noticed the line and jumped in. She was 75th in line and is now excited about drinking coffee free for a year.

The store said everyone handled it well, even the person who was 101st in line.
