Well, okay, to be fair, the frenzies over towels have become a tradition too. That’s because they cost only $1.74, and a 29-cent washcloth was also a huge hit on Black Friday. At that price, you could just buy washcloths and throw them away instead of washing them.
Here’s a towel frenzy from last year:
Wally World announced their towel tally in a press release. They also sold 2 million televisions, 1.4 million tablets, and 1.9 million dolls. Walmart did not specify how many towels, TVs, tablets, or dolls they sell on a normal weekend.
