White Plains' Wal-Mart and Other Stores Prepare to Control Unruly Black Friday Crowds

It was nearly a year ago that the aggressive, bargain-hungry crowds at a Wal-Mart in Westbury, NY, trampled stored employee Jdimytai Damour to death.

With this year’s Black Friday sales on the horizon, the New York Times looks into how Wal-Mart – the enormous national retailer, which has a location in White Plains – and other stores have made changes to calm and control unruly crowds. In the story, readers can see a photo of a crowd rushing the Sears store in the Galleria Mall in White Plains.

So, do you think the Black Friday crowds in Westchester are wild and chaotic?
