Hello. I am new to this website. I happened across it on accident, but I am finding it very rewarding. I look forward to future sales posted about Black Friday. I haven't been going out shopping on Black Friday until the last three years. I have seen quite a few sights that I would rather forget, but I have also completed 95% of my holiday shopping on that day at tremendous savings. I wanted to let you know that last year I was able to get to Wal-Mart and have my purchases made and to leave within 30 minutes. I didn't have to drive all over the place to other toy stores, because what I did was price match everything. I took in the sale ads from K-B Toys, Toys R Us, K-Mart, Target, etc. I went in before the sale ever started, around 5:30 a.m. had my cart loaded, was waiting at the lay-away line and was out right after lay-away opened at 6:00 a.m. They matched every ad that I had, I put the stuff on lay-away and went back a couple of days later and picked it all up. This way I was able to get to the other stores that I wanted to go to and I didn't have to fight with people to get things that I wanted nor was I tied up standing in line for hours. :clapping: I didn't know that you were able to put things on lay-away until the previous year after I waited in line for two hours and missed a lot of other sales. Just a little FYI in case you didn't know either. Happy shopping!!!

My walmart is 24 hours, but they hold back all the BF specials (toys) until they officially start sale at 6am. They actually tarp all the stacks of toys. Needless to say you know where all the specials are because you see all the blue tarps all over the store! I wish I could go early and get stuff into cart by 6am!

Ours does that as well AND has an employee standing by it....even during regular store hours the employee stayed there and they had the area blocked off and you had to tell the employee what you wanted- each of the MAJOR sales were on pallets out in the middle of the store so.....

Our WM is 24 hours too but they closed at 10 pm on Wed. before Thanksgiving and then opened up at 6am on Friday. The sale "hot" items were in the middle of the walkway (TV's, DVD players, some toys).
