It was already a trend last year to start the Black Friday and Thanksgiving Sales days before. Kmart is now taking it to the extreme and starts their Black Friday Sales this Sunday November 2nd.
Update: Kmart Black Friday deals for Sunday Nov. 9th
Apparently Kmart will start to offer only Black Friday deals in the home electronics product category as you guys seem to be hesitant about buying new TVs and Blu-ray players.
The Kmart Early Black Friday deal will include 15 items that will be announced in circulars on November 2nd.
Starting early with the deals will drive the prices down even more as retailers need to be even more aggressive on the actual Black Friday to keep up the excitement and resulting sales.
It will be interesting to see if other retailers will follow Kmart in launching their Black Friday campaigns early. As reported earlier some are already entertaining special Friday and weekend sales.
