BENTONVILLE, AR-- Usually black Friday means pure retail madness but for shoppers at the Walmart in Bentonville, it played out a little bit differently this year.
"They started camping out about 10pm on Wednesday night."
The Walmart in Bentonville opened its doors for the black Friday frenzy on Thanksgiving night and in the middle of it all was overnight store manager, Doug Snyder.
"There was a lot of searching and then they would settle down into whatever their lines were."Quite a few of them in the electronics and the apparel areas as well."
But come friday morning, there was a shocking surprise for shoppers.
"it was like empty and I really like that. There's a lot of stuff in there and no people so I'm going for it. No lines at all."
The retail storm was strangely still and customers at this Walmart steered clear of the chaos.
"I was expecting more people like how bad it gets in the morning what they show on TV... People just running and screaming but this one was normal."
Black friday die hards took advantage of the affordable deals and available carts.
"We decided to come back for more because the prices are pretty good this morning."
