DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - Shoppers hoping to grab some last minute items for the holidays were given a Grinch-like cold shoulder and  turned away from a Dallas area Walmart Tuesday afternoon.

The Walmart Neighborhood Market located at 2305 N. Central Expressway was scheduled to close at 6:00 pm on Christmas eve, but shoppers were stopped at the door and turned away as early as 5:15 p.m. by a store representative, enforced by private security.

Not even a can of ‘Who Hash’?

According to witnesses, a store manager said they were not letting customers in the store so they could close at 6:00 pm.
