This Friday night is what Star Wars fans have waited for
since Episode II. At midnight on April 2, 2005 select Toys
R Us and Wal-Marts will be open at midnight with Target
opening early for Star Wars fans to buy all the new Episode
III merchandise. With all the confusion of what is going
on at the stores here is the basic information you will
need. We also provided a Millionaireplayboy.com Midnight

that should be available.
