Walmart Black Friday is practically an entity in itself. People who wouldn’t step foot in the store the rest of the year often peruse fliers, map out shopping strategies, and grace its aisles on Black Friday. And this year’s Walmart Black Friday deals don’t disappoint either. Of course one must take into consideration that they might be taking their well-being into their own hands, as brawls have actually broken out over some of these Walmart Black Friday deals in the past.
Walmart is rolling out its doorbusters in “Events,” or specified chunks of time once again this year. Event 1 begins at 6:00 PM local time on Thanksgiving evening. Event 2 starts at 8:00 PM, and Event 3 kicks off the ‘official’ start to Black Friday at 6:00 AM. This means if shoppers want items that go on sale at 6:00 PM Thursday, as well as items that are reduced at 6:00 AM Friday, then they’d best be prepared to hang out at Walmart for a while.
One big plus for shoppers who head out to shop the Walmart Black Friday sales is the return of their 1-Hour Guaranteed Doorbusters. Those brave (crazy?) enough to brave the crowds from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM are guaranteed to nab the advertised coveted item. If the item sells out before they get their hands on it, Walmart guarantees they will get it to them by Christmas at the doorbuster price. Make note that this is only for Event 1. This guarantee doesn’t apply to the remainder of the Walmart Black Friday sales.
