Roughly 50 customers became stranded at a Walmart in Ontario, Canada

LEILA FADEL, HOST:

About 50 customers were stranded at a Walmart in Ontario, Canada, after a snowstorm made the roads too dangerous to drive. Employees entertained their unexpected guests by pulling games off their shelves, pumping up air mattresses and setting up a buffet with the deli food. Who needs a hotel when there's a Walmart in town?
