For this year’s Black Friday, Walmart has come up with a simple strategy: offer its stores’ “deepest availability” on some of the “most-wanted” products both in store and online.
This only means that there enough of these products for everyone as one of the country’s biggest retail stores made sure to stock up well in time for the upcoming shopping holiday.
Walmart Chief Merchandising Officer Steve Bratspies is confident that all of Walmart’s stores in the U.S. can deliver on three things during Black Friday shopping. He explained, “We’re offering amazing prices, we bought deeper on the gifts they want, and we simplified the shopping experience in stores and online.” As far as online shopping is concerned, customers can start taking advantage on Black Friday deals on Walmart.com as early as 12:01 a.m. PT on Thanksgiving morning. In fact, here are the deals that will be waiting for you when you log in:
