Online PR News – 16-November-2010 – – The usual holiday shopping stampede at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. will take place a few hours early this year, as the world's biggest retailer announced it will open most US stores at midnight for Black Friday deals.
New for this year, Walmart is inviting customers to come at midnight for great savings on items like toys, pajamas, denim and small kitchen appliances and then stay for incredibly low prices on hot electronics, like HDTVs, computers and video games at five a.m..
Even with US consumers spending remaining sluggish amid high unemployment, retailers expect to put up a good show during the coming holiday season. Pent up demand and deep discounts have already produced long lines at shopping centers more than a week before Black Friday.
Wal-Mart says the midnight open will help shoppers brave the cold weather as well as take advantage of deals on toys, apparel and home items before the blockbuster electronics event.
Starting at 12 a.m. on Black Friday shoppers can head to the Wal-mart Open House for big savings on popular toys, apparel and home goods. However, the much-awaited sales of electronics goods will start only at 5 a.m. with incredible offers on HDTVs, laptops, gaming systems and cameras.
