Walmart revealed today the company’s Black Friday plans, promising customers great prices and more availability of Black Friday items. Walmart’s Black Friday event will offer something for everyone – from $1.96 movies to a $30 Sharper Image Video Drone and a $798 65-inch Samsung HDTV.
Customers will be able to shop the majority of Walmart’s Black Friday deals early on-line beginning at 12:01 a.m. ET on Thanksgiving morning. Then, Walmart’s Black Friday event will begin in stores at 6:00 p.m. local time on Thanksgiving Day.
The retailer’s Black Friday circular is available starting today through the Walmart app.
To meet anticipated demand, Walmart has secured substantial availability of its Black Friday deals. For example, the retailer has stocked its digital and physical aisles with more than 1.5 million televisions, nearly two million tablets and computers and three million video games.
Customers looking to take advantage of Walmart’s annual wireless phone event can make appointments while at the store on Thursday night beginning at 6:00 p.m. Walmart’s wireless offer includes a $250 Walmart gift card and $0 down when qualified customers purchase a Samsung or Apple phone and sign up for an installment plan with AT&T Next or Verizon Device Payment. Phone activations will begin at 9:00 p.m. on Nov. 24.
The retailer is also bringing back its popular store maps which were accessed by millions of customers last year. These maps will highlight the locations of hot products like televisions, tablets, drones, toys, small appliances and kids clothing. Maps can be viewed on Walmart.com and on the app starting Nov. 17. Printed copies of the maps will also be available in stores.
