Walmart to open stores at midnight on Black Friday

BENTONVILLE, Ark. Walmart announced that most of its stores will open their doors at midnight to welcome families who want to get an early start on Christmas shopping on the Friday after Thanksgiving.

Starting at 12 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 26th, shoppers can head to the Walmart Open House for big savings on popular toys, apparel and home goods, the company reported. Then, beginning at 5 a.m., Walmart said it will kick off its electronics event, including incredible prices on HDTVs, laptops, gaming systems and cameras. Customers can find pricing updates by becoming a fan on Facebook at facebook.com/Walmart or by visiting Walmart.com starting tomorrow.

"New for this year, Walmart is inviting customers to come at midnight for great savings on items like toys, pajamas, denim and small kitchen appliances and then stay for incredibly low prices on hot electronics, like HDTVs, computers and video games at five a.m.," said Stephen Quinn, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Walmart U.S. "Giving families easier ways to save is important and offering great savings in our stores earlier this year -- starting at midnight -- is one way to make that happen."
