The line in Coralville Kohls was to the back of the store; a 45 min wait

Black Friday Midnight Madness!

We went to Wal-Mart at 10pm in Coralville thinking we could wait around until the electronics went on sale at midnight. Everyone had the same idea. We had to stalk regular shoppers leaving to get a parking spot and you couldn't use a cart because they were abandoned everywhere and no room in the store anywhere to push a cart. It was my first black Friday experience and my last. Kohls was more civil but a LONG line to check out, all the way to the back of the store. It took 45 minutes to get through that line.
