Walmart has been gearing up for the holiday shopping season for quite some time.
In late August, the company dropped its top toys list of 2022. This was promptly followed up by news of easier returns for the holiday season, extended savings, and an early holiday rollback sale.
Now, with just over a month until Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Walmart has officially announced its plans for the holiday shopping rush. Shoppers can expect sales for the entire month of November, and savings on gifts like electronics, clothes, and home goods will reportedly be greater than in years past.
“Black Friday has evolved over the years from a single day to an entire season and is without a doubt the most anticipated shopping event of the year,” said Charles Redfield, executive vice president of and chief merchandising officer for Walmart U.S. “Our customers are counting on us more than ever to help them find the season’s best gifts while delivering incredible savings like only Walmart can.
“That’s why we continue to challenge ourselves to offer an unparalleled Black Friday experience each year, giving customers more of what they love – more opportunities to shop even bigger savings on Walmart’s best assortment of gifts, easily and conveniently, online or in our stores.”
Start saving all November long
This year, Walmart will bring back its Black Friday Deals for Days event. Starting on November 7 and running through Cyber Monday on November 28, Walmart will pick new items to discount for the week ahead. Every Monday, the new sales will be announced, giving shoppers four weekly opportunities to finish their holiday gift list.
For consumers who pay for a Walmart+ membership, access to the Deals for Days event will start even earlier. Regular shoppers will get access to the deals starting at 7 pm each Monday of November, while Walmart+ members will be able to shop the deals online starting at 12:00 pm each Monday.
“We heard how much our Walmart+ members loved being first in line to shop our ‘Deals for Days’ events last year, so this year we’re excited to offer them even more of a head start,” said Chris Cracchiolo, senior vice president and general manager of Walmart+. “We’re always looking for ways to make shopping convenient and fun for Walmart+ members, and early access gives them extra time to save more money with a lot less stress – and that’s what Walmart+ is all about.”
The deals will also be made available to shoppers in-store starting at 6:00 am local time. In-store sales will start: November 9, November 16, and November 25 (Black Friday).
