A Black Friday change at Walmart
Chain officials say Mass. stores won’t open until 4 a.m.
Bay State customers looking to line up at Wal-Mart stores at midnight Black Friday with their circulars in hand will find closed stores. Wal-Mart stores in Massachusetts will not open at midnight as the company stated in national advertising. Instead, Massachusetts Walmart stores will open at 4 a.m. on Black Friday, Nov. 25. A Wal-Mart spokesperson could not be reached immediately. But a company press release cited discrepancies “between store openings advertised in some national ads and requirements of state laws’’ for the changes.
