Black Friday: Inside a trip to Wal-Mart

Last night, My mother, her friend, my boyfriend and I were one of the thousands of shoppers to head out to Wal-Mart for the beginning of “Black Friday,” which began at 8 p.m. on Thursday.

We headed to the Wal-Mart in Buckhorn, lists in hand.

It was actually pretty enjoyable. We got our items and were able to have a good time, without much pushing and shoving.

But for those of you who were in a tryptophan coma last night, you can still experience the inside of a Wal-Mart on Black Friday – here’s my photos documenting the experience:

Here what a typical Black Friday Wal-Mart looks like: pallets of goods everywhere, all wrapped up until it’s time to open them. The key is to find your pallet and stick to it like glue until the appointed hour.

Wal-Mart tends to be pretty organized. They have lines, helpful employees and plenty of items to keep everyone calm.

There’s usually people milling about everywhere scoping the situation out.

 

Once the pallets are open, chaos tends to break loose and people are EVERYWHERE.

And once you get your items, you’re still not in the clear. Waiting in line can be a pain. Here’s my mother (Lycoming shirt) waiting for her turn to check out.
