Walmart will open Thanksgiving, offer early discounts

13 November 2017

Among U.S. adults intending to purchase tech products during November, including Black Friday Week, the top five tech products shoppers plan to buy are: video-game consoles, smartphones, TVs, laptops and tablets. In-store, doorbuster discounts will be available starting at 6 p.m.

That's different from previous year when it kept the stores open straight through the night.

But while some shoppers might enjoy the experience of camping outside their favorite stores in the November weather, doing your Black Friday shopping online at home in your pajamas is an advantage that can't be overstated during Thanksgiving time - especially since stores like Walmart have a pick-up in store option.

New York & Company, a wear-to-work fashion retailer for women, will have a big Black Friday 2017 sales event with savings up to 75% and hundreds of doorbuster deals. In addition, nearly two-thirds (60 percent) of the holiday gift budget during the Black Friday shopping week (Thanksgiving Day through Cyber Monday) will go towards tech products.

Despite the controversy about stores remaining open on Thanksgiving, 49% of American adults will shop that day, but more will be shopping online or via a mobile device, at 33%, than will be shopping in store, at 30%.
