Walmart has some 2,600 locations that are open 24 hours, and they're planning special events to keep Twihards occupied as they wait to buy their discs, with clips from horror flicks playing on monitors, plus contests and giveaways. Last year's Twilight DVD was one of the most pre-ordered DVD movies in Walmart's history, and they intend to cash in heavily again.
Playing to the Twilight silliness, the Twilight Shops divide merchandise into sections devoted to Edward and vampire gear, and Jacob stuff with a werewolf theme. In addition to the DVDs, shoppers will find "wolf lover" and "vampire lover" shirts (but probably not the Team Edward James Olmos shirt, seen above), themed jewelry, books, posters and even Barbie dolls of Edward, Bella and Jacob -- who is, of course, shirtless.
The Twilight shopping areas will also offer "party snacks and beverages to prepare for DVD viewing parties" -- Walmart's website offers Twilight recipes which all spotlight Pepsi and Frito-Lay products -- as well as "New Moon: The Movie Board Game" and the "SCENE IT? Twilight Movie Edition."
Walmart's Twilight Shops will be open through mid-April.
