I am looking at some of the ads for Black Friday and another forum that read only was in deep discussion over Walmart opening at 8:00 p.m. (2000 hrs) on the 22 November. Now normally empolyees have to be in-place at work 2 to 3 prior to opening. This is just plain wrong. Also, reading the information, Sears is doing it as well. http://bfads.net/ Much like Sears, Walmart will also be starting their first round of Black Friday sales at 8pm on Thanksgiving Day; the second round of of doorbusters begins two hours later at 10pm.
