Walmart plans to start Black Friday deals early

(WMC-TV) - Black Friday is two weeks away and some retailers are hoping you are ready to make your plans now.

Walmart revealed some of their deals early and it has some shoppers excited.

Electronics and toys are the first to fly off the shelves and this year, companies like Walmart are starting even earlier to help you find unbeatable deals.

The company released its Black Friday deals on their mobile app and online. Walmart will kick off "Black Friday" on Thanksgiving Day.

It is the earliest the world's largest retailer has ever jump-started its holiday sales bonanza.

The deals kick into high gear at 8 p.m. Thanksgiving Day and new offers will be introduced at 10 p.m. followed by more discounts offered on Black Friday at 5 a.m.

Walmart plans to run a separate sale online.

The store says the new hours are in response to customers who want to shop early so they can hit the sack after eating all that turkey.
