Walmart is moving “Black Friday” to this Friday in a desperate attempt to make some money this holiday season. Never mind that this “holiday season” is weeks away. Black Friday is here, folks.
Walmart says they will unveil the “Black Friday” ad online this Thursday, at http://www.walmart.com/secret, so get your wallets out and cancel your plans.
Don’t expect the store to be appropriately Thanksgiving-themed either, says Walmart in a press release:
In-store, the experience for Wal-Mart shoppers will be fittingly festive. Christmas Shops offering holiday decor and gifts and onsite product demonstrations open this weekend.
No time to give thanks, people. Start shopping!
