We arrived at a Wal Mart in WV at 3:30 am on black friday, and they were already sold out of the 32" emerson tvs that were to be sold at 5:00 am. Nowhere in the ad did it say to be at the store the night before to get a ticket.
I'm sure the store employees families knew to be there though.When we asked a couple of employees about the tvs, their response was the same "we're sold out but we have a samsung for 3 hundred...". I left with nothing.
I have a choice about where to spend my money, and I will spend at Target.
