Two Major Retailers Announce Black Friday Deals Will Start EARLY!
Are you ready to start your holiday shopping early? Like SUPER early?
Well good...because the holiday hysteria is clearly starting earlier this year...
Amazon has announced that they will be offering their Black Friday deals nearly a month earlier than usual.
The major discounts are going to start on October 26th and will run through at least November 19th.
Actual Black Friday is on November 28th this year and there is no word just yet on whether these discount extensions are going to replace the Black Friday deals...or just give us more opportunity to shop. (Which I am totally okay with, by the way)
And they are not the only ones!
Home Depot has also announced that their Black Friday discounts will be available starting in early November and last through December. These deals will be available online and in-store.
And Walmart has even started revealing the most popular toys for the 2020 holiday season so they are clearly gearing up already as well.
And as much as I want to say "Thank you!" to all these retailers, it is clear that they made this change for them as well.
If killer discounts are offered for an entire month before the official start of the holiday season, it will space out the influx of orders and therefore, the demand for delivery.
Maybe the influx won't be as bad if they have already been working in overdrive for an extra month? It does make sense.
Plus with limited capacity limits, it will take more time to serve the same number of shoppers as they have in years passed so are looking to stretch out their services so all can be accommodated in a timely fashion.
These are the first few stores to announce early Black Friday deals and I am sure many more will follow because...well....its 2020 and nothing is as it is supposed to be.
