When is Black Friday?
Black Friday is on Friday, November 25. That’s the Thanksgiving and ever year, it’s a great time to get next-level deals on a range of items.
What time is Black Friday over?
Many Black Friday sales end at midnight (Amazon’s end at 3am ET), but others will extend over the weekend and Cyber Monday and most major retailers also launch new deals on Cyber Monday.
Does Black Friday have deals on everything?
Not everything, but a lot is. You’ll see impressive Black Friday discounts on items such as TVs, vacuums, furniture, air fryers, sneakers, clothes, makeup and so much more. Most things are likely to be marked down during Black Friday season.
Does every store have Black Friday sales?
Most do, including major retailers like Amazon, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Lowe’s, Home Depot and more.
Are supply chain delays and excess inventory still a thing this year?
‘Any supply chain issues we’re seeing this year aren’t at the same level as those in 2021, but that doesn’t mean they’re totally gone,” says Ramhold of the pandemic-related shortages and delivery delays we experienced last year. So, barring any worst-case scenarios, we should be fine in that regard,
“Retailers have had a year to plan to avoid the massive delivery delays we saw last year, so shopping Black Friday should leave plenty of time for stuff to arrive before the holidays,” notes McGrath. “But that’s assuming no big surprises or snags. Retailers are still overstocked with pandemic-popular items, like small home goods, countertop appliances and casual clothing. So expect good deals in those categories.”
Will inflation impact Black Friday this year?
Last year, consumers nearly $9 billion on Black Friday, just slightly less than the year prior — proving that the economic volatility triggered by the pandemic most likely impacted spending habits. Experts say it’s unclear how inflation will affect Black Friday behavior this year, but they have their theories.
“According to our survey, 70% of shoppers are taking inflation into consideration this year,” confirms McGrath. That means people are not necessarily waiting for Black Friday itself to maximize savings, and instead “beginning their holiday shopping earlier than ever in an effort to spread out cash flow,” adds Gall.
To meet this demand, major retailers are already launching big ‘pre-sale’ events leading up to Black Friday. “Spreading out their shopping will help to prevent [consumers’] budgets from taking a hit all at once,” notes Ramhold. One possible caveat? “If starting prices are higher, then that means [potentially] higher deal prices when all is said and done.”
