Walmart Just Announced Details About This Huge Sale
Though there's still plenty of time left to enjoy Halloween candy and pumpkin pie, Walmart is busy gearing up for the holiday shopping season. Meanwhile, experts are urging shoppers to buy the items on their shopping lists in advance as supply chain issues fuel nationwide shortages on supermarket shelves.
If you're planning ahead this holiday season, you should know that Walmart just revealed new details about its huge annual Black Friday sale. Here's everything you need to know right now.
Big savings are being stretched across multiple days.
America's largest retail chain previously swapped one day of sales on Black Friday out for several days worth of deals throughout November. Because last year's format change was a success, Walmart is sticking with it. The retailer is also promising to "have more of every product available so as many customers as possible can take advantage of the season's best ideals" in spite of ongoing shortages. In total, there will be three deal "events," and they will open to Walmart+ members before everyone else.
Event #1 launches on Nov. 3.
As the final supplies of Halloween candy dwindle and spooky decorations get packed away, Walmart will launch the first of the three "Black Friday Deals for Days" events. Be on the lookout for "amazing deals on toys and electronics," the company teases.
Walmart+ members will get to browse the sales online on Nov. 3 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET, with the event opening up to the public at 7 p.m. ET. These deals will move in-store on Nov. 5 at 5 a.m. local time.

Event #2 kicks off on Nov. 10.
The second event will focus on apparel, hardlines, home goods, and more. Walmart+ members can log onto Walmart.com on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 3 p.m. ET to get the first peek at griddles, laptops, vacuums, and more sale items. The public will be able to access the deals at 7 p.m. ET, and the sale will later move in-store on Nov. 12.
Event #3 is going to be the biggest sale of them all.
So far, details on the final event are scarce, which means that Walmart shoppers will have to wait a little bit longer to find out more about the chain's iconic Black Friday deals.
But "for customers looking to get a jump on their holiday shopping, there's no need to wait until November," Walmart says. Shoppers can save now on items like air fryers, outdoor play equipment and other toys, and TVs.
