We reported yesterday that Walmart will unveil Black Friday 2011 deals on their Facebook page. The report was based on a short tweet from Walmart and we did not have additional details. Today Walmart announced that the retailer will for the first time offering customers an early, exclusive preview of the Walmart Black Friday Ad deals.
Starting later today, customers who sign up at Walmart.com or Facebook.com/Walmart will be the first to receive an early preview of the Walmart Black Friday 2011 deals on electronics, toys, apparel and more. Walmart says to reveal the Black Friday 2011 deals soon.
Walmart just announced to release the Walmart Black Friday 2011 Ad at 12:01am November 10. This is midnight tonight.
First Black Friday Weekend had the Best Deals in Black Friday History. Best Buy, Target and Amazon offered game changing deals this weekend. Walmart needs to react to stay the best Black Friday store. Read the full report.
"Walmart will be the Black Friday destination for the best prices on the hottest gifts, including brand name electronics and toys," said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising officer, Walmart U.S. "We know shoppers are watching every penny this season, so we’re sharing our Black Friday specials early this year so they can plan ahead and deliver a wonderful Christmas for their families."
This new way of releasing the Walmart Black Friday Ad will likely prevent the ad from leaking on Black Friday sites and being unveiled at CNN first as it happened the last years. I like this approach and hope Walmart is actually releasing all Black Friday deals to registered costumers. Of course I will register too. The Walmart Black Friday Ad is the most anticipated Black Friday ad. By offering it early to registered shoppers, Walmart will gain huge subscriber numbers. Walmart already has close to 10 million Facebook fans. I predict that this number will grow significantly now. The registration feature has already launched on Walmart.com.
