Just about any store is a mess this time of year, full of shoppers willing to do whatever it takes for a deal.

In the chaotic madness this past Sunday, a Walmart customer found an 8-month-old baby unattended in a stroller.

Employees at the Manassas store were notified and police arrived. Calls over the intercom went unanswered. Eventually, the parents came to the office to collect their baby, but they got a booking sheet, instead.
