Walmart Black Friday 2012 Ad Offers Three Events for Shoppers
Despite having a problem with their employees with the headline grabbing Walmart Walkout, the world’s largest retailer is pushing with its Black Friday 2012 sales with three events for its shoppers.
Walmart is opening its stores as early as 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day on Thursday for its event 1. It will be followed by a second wave of discounts on its event 2 slated to happen at 10 p.m. on the same day. The last wave will happen on event 3 which will start at 5 a.m on Black Friday. If you want to get the items you’re eyeing for, we suggest to arrive there early.
Walmart earlier stated that those standing in line or in stores between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. on Thanksgiving are guaranteed three specially discounted items. If they sell out during that hour, you will get a guarantee card for any of those three items, but you must pay for them by midnight, and you can only get one of each item.
The three items include an Apple iPad 2 16GB with Wi-Fi, a March 2011 version, priced at $399 with a $75 Walmart Gift Card; a 32-inch Emerson 720p LCD TV at $148, $80 below the usual price; and an LG Blu-ray player for $38.
Edgar Dworsky, a consumer advocacy expert and the founder of Consumerworld.org said he likes Walmart’s plan. “That is nice because unfortunately most stores’ door busters in any store are limited quantities. Almost no one gives rain checks, almost nobody price matches on Black Friday.”
As with other retailers, Walmart is offering various items from laptops, cameras, toys, and HD TV on its Black Friday 2012 sale. We’ve managed to get the ad scans for all of the three events of Walmart’s Black Friday 2012 below. Zoom in to get a better view of the items on the catalogue.
