    They are having this in the Clay Walmart as well. They are offering pics with vader there.

    I am in pretty good with the Manager there Im shocked she didnt call us for help ........she does every time they have an event.

    I went shopping the other day and noticed signs everywhere. If anyone wants to do something at a local walmart let me know perhaps we can weazel in at the last minute :)

    Don't know if anyone here went to the midnight thing in Auburn, but it was a complete and total waste of time. Barely a fraction of the merchandise was made available, and the toy manager there had absolutely NO control over anything. She had no clue what most of the stuff was, and no real answers for anyone who asked questions, other than most of the stuff people actually WANTED would be available at 8 am in the tent.

    Also, not all Wal-Marts were doing the midnight opening. I know this because one of the people that went with me works at the Waterloo/Seneca Falls Wal-Mart, and they didn't open at midnight. Not til 7 am. Which is where I will be going to get the rest of the stuff in a few hours. It's closer, and after the fiasco earlier tonight, you couldn't PAY me to go back to Auburn.
