Walmart expands Black Friday plans with weekly events in November
Likely looking to reach more online shoppers this year due to the COVID pandemic, retail giant Walmart is taking a new approach to Black Friday sales this year.
Starting on November 4, Walmart will run it’s first “Deals for Days” event for online shoppers. Specifically starting at 7 p.m. ET, customers can visit Walmart.com to find deals like a $88 42-inch UHD Roku TV as we as Hotel Style bath towels on sale for $5.
On November 7, Walmart will release more deals online and in-stores. Some examples include the Magic Bullet Blender for $15 and a 1:6 scale RC truck for $40. Those deals will become available at 12 a.m. ET on the site and in stores at 5 a.m. local time.
On November 11, Walmart’s next event is targeting customers looking for electronics deals in addition to apparel, home and other categories. There isn’t much specificity on what will be on sale though. The same start times apply though. 7 p.m. ET on Nov 11 and 12 a.m. ET on Nov 14 (5 a.m. local time in stores).
On November 25, the pattern will repeat. (This is an identical pattern to Black Friday events in previous years, btw.) Deals will go online at 7 p.m. ET on November 25 and more deals will be dropped on Black Friday at 12 a.m. ET for online & 5 a.m. local time in stores.
Here’s a list of the deal drop times for online shoppers:
