Walmart’s kicks off the holidays with “Black Friday-like” deals at 11/3 cyber savings event

Thursday, Oct 30, 2014 at 11:01 PM

In a media call Thursday morning, Walmart announced its plans for the holiday season, including tweaks to Savings Catcher, an online price matching experiment, and an online sale rivaling Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick off the season.

Walmart Black Friday Plans 2014“Helping families deliver an amazing Christmas doesn’t start on Black Friday, it starts now,” said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising officer, Walmart U.S. “As soon as they put away their Halloween costumes, our customers start prepping for Thanksgiving, buying Christmas trees and shopping for gifts. They want the best deals now and we’re here for them today, next week and throughout the season. Our strategy is simple: lead with low prices, offer the best brands, make shopping easier than ever and bring the holiday joy that only Walmart can deliver.”

Stage Stores 2014 Black Friday Ad Released! Sales Start 4pm Thanksgiving Day

Thursday, Oct 30, 2014 at 1:44 PM

Stage Stores Black Friday AdDepartment store chain Stage Stores Inc, which owns Bealls, Palais Royal, Peebles, Stage and Goody’s, has released its 2014 Black Friday ad, and it seems the Thanksgiving Day sales trend isn’t slowing down any time soon.

This year’s Black Friday sale will be a two-parter: the first will begin at 4pm on Thanksgiving Day and last until 1am on Friday morning, and the second will pick up at 6am Friday morning and last until 3pm that afternoon. Friday shoppers will be entered into a drawing to win the employee discount for one year, and this will be awarded to one customer at every store.

It seems this is Stage Stores’ way of appeasing the anti-Black Thursday crowd while still keeping up with Black Friday giants like Macy’s and Kohl’s, which both also open on Thursday. Shoppers who want to avoid the mall on Thanksgiving can still catch exclusive Stage Stores sales on Friday morning, and those who don’t mind shopping on a traditionally family-oriented holiday can get the best of both worlds. And of course, anyone who wants to stay home to shop can get the same sales online.

Doorbusters include 50 percent off kids’ toys, a $99.99 32″ Proscan HDTV, a $49.99 Proscan tablet with case and keyboard, $39.99 Nuband watch/activity trackers and much more. Customers who spend over $50 get a free stocking stuffer or $10 gift card, which is redeemable between December 26 and January 31.

Apple Pay to Soothe Shoppers’ Security Concerns on Black Friday

Thursday, Oct 30, 2014 at 7:00 AM

Apple PayWith so many high-profile data breaches plaguing popular Black Friday retailers like Target and Home Depot, it’s easy to see why shoppers might want to take their business elsewhere–lest they become victims of identity theft. But in light of the upcoming holiday shopping season, many stores have unveiled a new weapon against credit card data hacking: Apple Pay.

Released last week, Apple Pay is a new mobile payment service that allows you to make purchases, both in person and online, with just a tap on an iPhone 6. Shoppers who have the new phones and a compatible credit or debit card can upload their card information and leave their wallets at home when shopping at participating retailers.

How Black Friday Became Black Thursday: A Timeline

Wednesday, Oct 29, 2014 at 10:53 AM

It’s one thing to know that Black Friday store hours have been creeping earlier and earlier year over year. It’s quite another to actually look at the data to see how far we’ve actually come.

So far for 2014, we’ve seen official confirmation from Macy’s and the Bon-Ton group of department stores that their Black Friday sales will begin in stores at 6pm on Thanksgiving. Additionally, many malls nationwide have already announced plans for 6pm as well. To the chagrin of many, it looks like 6pm Thursday is the hour du jour for Black Friday 2014.
