Can you believe that Black Friday is only one week away?
Well, it continues to look like more stores have begun to creep into Thursday as the first big shopping day of the holiday season, and Walmart leads the charge.
Last week the Bentonville-based Walmart revealed its Black Friday sales, which begins on Thanksgiving day at 8 p.m. The retailer also announced the sale of the Apple iPad 2, 16GB with Wi-Fi for $399 for shoppers in the store and in line between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. The store guarantees the price for the customers even if the items runs out, on condition the items are purchased by midnight.
The Walmart in White Lake is located at 9190 Highland Road.
"We know it’s frustrating for customers to shop on Black Friday and not get the items they want," said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer, Walmart U.S. "This year, for the first time ever, customers that shop during Walmart’s one-hour event will be guaranteed to have three of the most popular items under their tree at a great low price."
According to the San Jose Mercury News, Walmart's move is meant to keep it competitive against other retailers who have in the past year also moved its Black Friday hours up to gain shoppers.
