1Unless you’ve been under a rock for a while, you know this coming Friday is Black Friday, the biggest retail shopping day of the calendar year. We looked at the Facebook pages of the top 10 retailers in the U.S., according to the National Retail Federation, and here’s what we found.
Walmart has the most unique feature of the top 10 retailers, offering links to maps of users’ local stores, which featured the respective stores’ highlighted Black Friday deals — but first you need to like the page to access this.
Supermarkets don’t seem to get caught up in the Black Friday frenzy, as Kroger simply provided links to the circulars for users’ local stores.
Target also provides links to the circulars for users’ local stores, and these flyers are chock full of deals.
Home Depot itouting its Thanksgiving Appliance Sale, which is already under way, and the wall of its Facebook page also highlighted several other products that will be on sale this weekend.
The good news is that the Costco page has a section for its November and December offers. The bad news is that we couldn’t access it because we received a message saying that secure browsing (HTTPS) was not supported.
Lowe’s Home Improvement
The winner of the Lowe’s Black Friday Throwdown contest is the Dyson DC33 Multi-Floor Upright Vacuum, which is available for $299 through November 28.
Sears (Including Kmart)
Kmart, meanwhile, pushed the fact that its layaway plan is back and offered links to circulars for its local stores.
