Walmart Announces Black Friday Plans
With the announcements that Home Depot and Target would be extending their Black Friday sales through November, we were curious as to what Walmart would be doing this year for their Black Friday sale. They announced on Wednesday their plans for the after-Thanksgiving sale and will host a three-part event called Black Friday Deals for Days throughout November. Keep reading for details on Walmart’s Black Friday deals, store hours, shopping guidelines, and more.
Arguably the biggest name in Black Friday shopping, Walmart is changing its approach to the most anticipated shopping day of the year. Rather than a one-day sale, they will be hosting a three-part event for their Black Friday shoppers this year. All three events will take place in the month of November and will have deals available both online and in-store for shoppers.
To best address the safety concerns of their shoppers, this year they’ll have their biggest deals and doorbusters available online. Each of the three events, detailed below, will kick-off online to allow shoppers to snag deals from the safety of their own homes.
For those looking for an in-store experience, Walmart will be taking extra precautions to keep shoppers safe. Customers will form a single-file line to enter the store, which will have capacity restrictions. They will be given a sanitized shopping cart and they will be directed to shop the right side of the aisles to ensure proper social distancing. Masks will be required for in-store shopping.
