Even Presidential Candidates Agree: Wal-Mart is the Best Place to Shop for

Hot Electronics Items this Christmas Season

    BENTONVILLE, Ark., Nov. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Just like the
 millions of Americans who turn to their neighborhood Wal-Mart (NYSE:   WMT)
 for their holiday shopping needs, Wal-Mart announced today that former Sen.
 John Edwards is seeking to be one of the first to get a Sony PlayStation3,
 one of the most coveted holiday gift items this Christmas season.
     Yesterday, a staff person for former Sen. Edwards contacted a Wal-Mart
 electronics manager in Raleigh, North Carolina to obtain a Sony
 PlayStation3 on behalf of the Senator's family. Later that night, Sen.
 Edwards reportedly re-told a homespun story to participants of a United
 Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union-sponsored call about how his son
 had chided a fellow student for purchasing shoes at Wal-Mart.
     Wal-Mart welcomes Sen. Edwards to visit his local Wal-Mart store and
 explore the extensive line of home electronics as well as the Metro7 line
 shoes for men and boys.
     The Company noted the PlayStation3 is an extremely popular item this
 Christmas season, and while the rest of America's working families are
 waiting patiently in line, Senator Edwards wants to cut to the front.
 While, we cannot guarantee that Sen. Edwards will be among one of the first
 to obtain a PlayStation3, we are certain Sen. Edwards will be able to find
 great gifts for everyone on his Christmas list - many at Wal-Mart's
 "roll-back prices."
