At­ten­tion frus­trated Black Fri­day shop­pers who can never grab that hot prod­uct: Wal-Mart is hop­ing to re­lieve some of that anx­i­ety.

The world’s largest re­tailer is throw­ing its doors open at 8pm on Thanks­giv­ing Day, two hours ear­lier than a year ago. It’s also guar­an­tee­ing shop­pers that it will have three of the most pop­u­lar items it sells if they line up inside the store dur­ing a one-hour event that day.

Those who are lined up inside the store be­tween 10pm and 11pm on Thanks­giv­ing will be able to pur­chase the fol­low­ing items: an Ap­ple iPad 2 with WiFi for $399 plus a $74 Wal-Mart gift card” an Emer­son 32-inch LCD TV for $148, down from the orig­i­nal $228” and an LG Blu-ray Disc player for $38, about half off the orig­i­nal price.

For those who are inside the store dur­ing that one- hour win­dow on Thanks­giv­ing and find the prod­uct sold out, Wal­Mart will of­fer a guar­an­tee card for the item. The item must be paid for by mid­night and reg­is­tered on­line. The prod­uct will then be shipped to the store where it was pur­chased for the cus­tomer to pick up be­fore De­cem­ber 25.
