Walmart has announced that they are reinventing Black Friday this year with 3 different savings events instead of the usual single event held each year during the Thanksgiving holiday. Read on for the schedule of sales and featured products.

In an effort to adapt to the changing shopping environment during this holiday season, Walmart will be offering "a revamped Black Friday savings event that will deliver the incredible prices customers expect from the retailer in an entirely new way to help provide a safer and more convenient shopping experience," according to a company statement.

In a series of events they are calling “Black Friday Deals for Days,” Walmart will have three separate savings events in November with the "the retailer’s best prices of the season on the most sought-after items on 2020 holiday wish" as well as new items from top brands, like HP, Instant Pot, LEGO, L.O.L. Surprise!, Roku and Shark, and items that can only be found at Walmart.

Each event will begin online at Walmart.com and continue in Walmart stores. Customers will also have the option to pick up their online Black Friday orders through Walmart’s contact-free curbside pickup service!

“Customers trust Walmart to deliver an amazing Black Friday year after year. Although this year’s event looks different, our commitment to what our customers depend on us for – the absolute best prices of the season on hot gifts from top brands – hasn’t changed,” Scott McCall, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for Walmart U.S., said. “I’m really excited that this year, when it matters most to our customers, we’re offering them more convenient and safer ways to shop Black Friday at Walmart, whether that’s from the shelf in one of our stores, ordering online and picking it up curbside or having it delivered right to their front door.”

Safety Precautions

“We’ve been very thoughtful as we planned this year’s event. By spreading deals out across multiple days and making our hottest deals available online, we expect the Black Friday experience in our stores will be safer and more manageable for both our customers and our associates,” McCall added.

The health and safety of its customers and associates is Walmart’s top priority. To help provide a safer shopping experience, all Walmart stores will open at 5 a.m. local time on Black Friday in-store event days.

Customers will form a single, straight line to enter the store. Associates will hand out sanitized shopping carts to customers to help with social distancing, and Health Ambassadors will be placed at entrances to greet customers and remind them to put on a mask.

During these in-store Black Friday events, Walmart will meter customers into the store to help reduce congestion and promote social distancing inside stores. Customers will be directed to shop down the right-hand side of aisles to be able to easily – and safely – select the Black Friday items they’re interested in purchasing.
