Black November – The discounts might be starting early this year
Walmart is launching their discounts early, will other retailers follow suit?
Every year Black Friday rolls around, providing opportunities for huge discounts across the technology and gaming sphere, and sometimes chaotic altercations between shoppers battling over the best bargains. However, the story might be different this year as Walmart has announced plans to launch their deals early, and to extend the period of discounts, perhaps to avoid the shopper on shopper violence, and save their website from being tanked by heavy and sudden traffic. This has been called ‘Black November’ by some.
What is Black November?
Walmart is the world’s largest company by revenue and owns many subsidiary brands across countless industries. November is understandably their busiest period with them hiring over 20,000 seasonal employees to staff their fulfillment centers to handle the huge influx of sales coming courtesy of the Black Friday sales tradition. They are promising an “all-new Black Friday Experience” this year by spreading the discounts throughout the season and starting the offers early, potentially changing the Black Friday game by transforming it into a month-long experience, Black November.
How long will Black November last?
Given this new sales technique, we can’t say for sure as the traditional Black Friday is still yet to arrive, but given Walmart’s announcement that they will start the holiday shopping season early by way of this Black November tactic its safe to say that the discounts will run for considerably longer than they have in previous years.
as mentioned above Walmart is the largest company in the world, so It won’t be surprising if other retailers jump on the early discounts bandwagon. Extending the sales period is a shrewd decision as it spreads the considerable load that has traditionally overwhelmed physical outlets with customers and tanked websites with far too much traffic causing crashes.
