NEW YORK (AP) - Walmart is spreading out its traditional one-day Black Friday deals over three weekends in November in an effort to reduce crowds in its stores during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The company's plans, announced Wednesday, offer the first glimpse from a major retailer of what a reinvented Black Friday will look like during a pandemic.
Other national retailers like Macy’s have said that Black Friday deals will be spread out and will encourage more online shopping, but none have given specific details.
The Arkansas-based discounter will kick off the deals online Nov. 4, with new deals in stores on Nov. 7.
