I actually rather enjoyed the Black Friday experience there last year. Since they opened at midnight, I cruised in around 1 AM as the initial crowds were dying down and grabbed a few of the things I wanted. They still had plenty of most of the doorbuster items, so I got everything I wanted without dealing with waiting out in the cold or crazy mobs rushing into the store.

I'm waiting for a year round aisle or two of Christmas, v-day, or fourth of july crap at Walmart.
The clerks could wear a American flag Santa hat.
