Walmart is starting the holiday shopping season earlier than usual.
The retailer is hosting its Big Save online shopping event starting on Oct. 11 to offer Black Friday-like sales on items across electronics, appliances, toys, fashion and beauty.
Walmart’s Big Save event follows the trend of other retailers kicking off the holiday shopping season in October in order to give customers ample time to do their shopping in light of the coronavirus pandemic.
The retailer’s savings event starts just two days before Amazon Prime Day, which was postponed from this summer because of the pandemic. Target is also hosting its own two-day Deal Days savings event at the same time as Amazon’s Prime Day.
