Black Friday is just around the corner, and it is time for customers to gather all the tips they can before going into their favorite stores. Most outlets have made all their Black Friday deals available online as well as in the stores.
Retailers no longer want stampedes of customers at their front doors. They want hordes of online bargain seekers pumping digital shopping carts. That is why two of the biggest general stores n the US, Walmart, and Target, are stockpiling online offers.
Walmart’s Black Friday deals are in the Walmart app, whereas Target offers are on the company’s web page. Walmart will also increase the number of items with discounts on its online store by about 50 percent. The offers will be available days before Nov. 25.
Both stores are bringing the hoverboard back from the dead, the consumer product that disappeared in 2015 after colleges, schools, and airports banned it.
