Shoppers tug over a television during the holiday shopping rush at a Walmart in Dallas, Friday, Nov. 28, 2008. This store is open 24 hours, but the special sale prices started at 5 a.m. so shoppers made a made grab at the items right at 5 a.m. Shoppers, who had snapped their wallets shut since September, flocked to stores and malls before dawn Friday to grab deals on everything from TVs to toys for the official start of the holiday shopping season, feared to be the weakest in decades.

Forget about standing in line to score Black Friday deals at Wal-Mart.
The retailer has decided to open at 6am on Thanksgiving Day and stay open through the night and all day on Black Friday. That means all the deals will be rolled out at 5am in hopes of keeping the chaos in check.
This is in response to the Wal-Mart worker who died after being trampled last holiday season in New York.
The company says, “We are committed to looking for ways to make our stores even safer for our customers and associates this holiday season.”
