In honor of Twilight and the huge amount of success it has made throughout the world, Wal-mart stores nationwide will be decked out with Twilight goodies the whole month of March in honor of the release of the DVD. The news release on Wal-mart.com says:
ans bitten by Twilight mania will soon find much more than the popular vampire book series at Walmart as the retailer becomes a new nationwide Twilight destination. In conjunction with Summit Entertainment's DVD release of this box office smash launching next month, all Walmart stores and Walmart.com will offer unique "Twilight store" areas containing a wide array of crowd-pleasing merchandise at affordable Walmart values.
Today Twilight fans can go to www.walmart.com/twilight to pre-order the new Walmart-exclusive standard DVD movie or special edition DVD, both to release nationwide March 21. As the countdown to the DVD release begins, the Web site will host discussions and post news about exciting fan events and activities to come. Today fans can go to Walmart.com/twilight to watch exclusive behind-the-scenes movie footage. In a few days, they also will find special features on the site to upload and enhance their digital photo to send an "eBite" to a friend. As teens, moms and friends prepare for Twilight "viewing parties" around the country, the site will continue to add special announcements and new material over the coming weeks.
Committed to bringing customers more affordable access to Twilight items than ever before, Walmart will dedicate a special area in each of its 3,500 stores to Twilight beginning mid-March - just days before the DVD movie release is available - to offer items including:
