Walmart has rolled out the first of its early Black Friday 2017 deals available to shoppers online in which the chain retail company calls it ‘Opening Act’ Holiday Specials as the competition to win the shoppers’ money this holiday sales season starts to escalate.
The United States-based world’s largest retailer, looking to mirror its strong holiday season last year when it trumped out competing rivals like Target and Best Buy as well Amazon and other national retailers, is offering a handful of deals such a 32-inch TCL Roku Smart TV for just $125 as well as Acer Aspire ES Laptop and the Xbox One S Console Bundle with a video game title from day one of November through the 12th, in the hopes of honing consumers’ thirst for the Black Friday shopping craze.
A full list of Walmart’s Black Friday 2017 deals that will only be available on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday itself is available here.
Most of the Walmart Black Friday 2017 deals will be available online all day at walmart.com on November 23 but only in-stores later on Thanksgiving Thursday.
Walmart Black Friday 2017 deals will be available in-store starting at 6 o’clock in the evening, which was also the case last year. On Wednesday, Best Buy also notes that an early start to its 2017 Black Friday deals.
Last week, Walmart published a news release about its overall holiday season strategy and tactics, which includes holding thousands of Black Friday 2017 kick off parties in its location stores.
While the National Retail Federation (NRF) has predicted a strong holiday sales season for the industry in the United States, it’s pretty clear that the Thanksgiving Thursday to Cyber Monday stretch is only getting more zealous. Walmart, Amazon and Target guaranteeing low prices and other discount retailers tumbling over themselves to offer faster shipping and unique items.
The earlier deals may overshadow the overall impact of the sales on Black Friday 2017 itself on November 24th — as they have in recent memories — but retail corporations are taking a season-wide outlook at their respective strategy since so much shopping has been offered to the consumers earlier into the Christmas season.
The months of November and December may generate about 30 percent of yearly sales for many chain retailers. But on the far side of that, a very successful Black Friday 2017 sales is the key to getting American consumers into the habit of opting to shop in one retailer against the competition.
Even though,the Arkansas-based retailer Walmart has made a point to lessen the amount of inventory it totes in stores — increasing efficiency and avoiding an oversupply of unsold stocks. Walmart notes that it will be fully stocked for the Black Friday 2017 sale.
“Customers also want to ensure that when they venture out on Black Friday, they can find the deal that they’re after. The items need to be available in the stores,” Steve Bratspies, chief merchant for Walmart USA told the member of the press on a conference call.
Last year, Walmart changed the game of the biggest single day sales shopping bonanza by releasing the first deal as early as late October.
Just like in the previous years, television sets will be again the most popular and sought after Black Friday deals this year and Walmart just made available its first Black Friday 2017 TV deal available for grab. It is a VIZIO 55-inch UHD 4K Full Array LED TV (D55un-E1) for $398 only, a $200 price cut from its regular price. The Walmart Black Friday 2017 TV deal stock is limited, but we anticipate the retailer to have new stock coming in throughout the pre-Black Friday and holiday sales season.
Also on sale at the big box discount chain is the Microsoft Xbox One S 500GB with either video game title or controller bundle for only $279, a $108.88 price slash. Rival chain retailers Best Buy, Amazon and Target are also offering their early holiday sales.
Walmart announced its plans for the early holiday sales season earlier today with the release of its first pre- Black Friday 2017 deals known as ‘Opening Act’ Holiday Specials.
