I'm curious as to how the "Ticket" method worked for Wal-Mart on Black Friday this year. Did anyone attend this reorganized system? If so, was it a fiasco or was it actually beneficial? Is it going to end up being the new standard for Black Friday consumers?

Well we were there at 5am and went to get one of the $78 Blue Rays. They had the blue ray line starting at the front of the mens section and zig zaging through the store. By the time we found the beginning at about 5:30 we got a ticket and walked straight through the line grabbed a DVD player and then was done. It really seemed like more work for the buyer and the associates. I wonder how many people were back in electronics looking for them and couldn't locate so just left thinking they were all gone. That is almost what we did until we seen someone carrying one in there buggy so we asked where they were located. When we found them they must of had 50 left but no line. Anyway just an opinion would like to hear more input. It was pretty crowded at 5am though.

I was there at 3:30 not waiting on a "big ticket" item but I was there for other sale items. I did like that they allowed people to put grab and go items in their buggys before 5:00 am. The ticket system seemed to work well. The lines thinned out pretty quickly after 5:00 am, but I do wish they would have had all items on the floor before 5:00, at 5:30 I was still waiting on apparel items to come onto the floor.
