This year, a concerted effort by retailers to squeeze an extra day of shopping out of this busy weekend had shoppers lined up a day early making Thanksgiving Black Thursday. 

At the Selmer Walmart, the parking lot was overflowing and shoppers filled the store looking for deals last Thursday night.
