Sears and Kmart Black Friday 2018: Ads, Deals and Bankruptcy

The Sears and Kmart Black Friday 2018 sale will be very different.

Sears Holding filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy on October 15. Once, America's biggest retail chain, Sears has been struggling for the past years. Over a decade ago, the Sears Black Friday and the Kmart Black Friday sales were among the top 5 best of the season. Those times are long gone.

While Sears remains open during the Bankruptcy proceedings, your neighborhood Sears or Kmart store might be closed by Black Friday. From the 700 stores Sears operates today, about 150 will be closed by the end of the year. Sears is facing a similar challenge as ToysRUs last year. The retail chain needs to fill shelves and offer customers attractive Black Friday and Holiday deals to drive revenues.

This is very difficult as ToysRUs and other retailers demonstrated as they failed after the Holiday season. Last year the Sears Black Friday ad dropped on November 7. The retailer was in trouble back then already. Kmart and Sears hosted blowout sales all November already ahead of Black Friday. Sears's Black Friday doorbuster deals included 52 percent on a Kenmore Elite Refrigerator for $999.99, reg. price $2,099.99, 50 percent on a Craftsman 320-pc Mechanic's Tool Set for $149.99, reg. price $299.99, and Everlast yoga sets for her and fleece separates for him for $9.99.

The Kmart Black Friday ad advertised $1.99 Barbie dolls, a $4.99 Toaster and a $499.99 55" Samsung UN55MU6290 4K Smart TV with $50 in cashback in points. The Kmart Black Friday ad was released on November 7 as well.

Deal hunters should keep an eye on Sears and Kmart as the desperate times might lead to extreme discounts and clearances. The troubled Sears and Kmart stores are playing in the hands of Walmart. See the Walmart Black Friday 2018 Ad details that we know so far.

Take also a look at the Amazon Black Friday 2018 facts, Target Black Friday 2018 ad and the Best Buy Black Friday 2018 ad predictions. The actual Black Friday 2018 is on November 23. The whole month of November will be a one big Black Friday sale. For some hot Holiday gifts, it's best to not wait and purchase them now. This is true for the new limited edition Nintendo Switch consoles and these top 10 Holiday toys of 2018.
