It seems only natural that Galactic Empire servant Darth Vader would be out and about on Black Friday, and he appeared to be starting his day of shopping for Luke and Leia at Wal-Mart, thanks to the pictured created by a decal in the window of this semi truck.

Artesians are also encouraged to visit local merchants (before or after the football game, of course) on Shop Small Saturday.
