Black Friday deals land next week as retailers look to spur early shopping

Halloween is weeks away and summer weather still hangs in the air in Houston, but retailers will blast out a flurry of Black Friday-like deals next week in an effort to capture early holiday shoppers during the pandemic.

Walmart, Amazon, Target and Best Buy are offering major markdowns with multiday sales as retailers aim to encourage early shopping in what will be a strained holiday season, spreading deals out over more time and discouraging large crowds.

“It didn’t make sense for us to be driving large amounts of people to (Sam’s Club) in a single day like we had in the past,” said Tony Rogers, chief member officer at Sam’s Club, which is running early promotions this month rather than one-day events later in the season.

Holiday shopping: Amazon, Target, more retailers push earlier deals amid COVID pandemic

NEW YORK — Add last-minute holiday shopping to the list of time-honored traditions being upended by the coronavirus pandemic. Retailers are kicking off the holiday season earlier than ever this year in hopes of avoiding big in-store crowds and shipping bottlenecks in November and December.

Stores like Best Buy, Macy’s, and Target typically offer their biggest Black Friday deals over Thanksgiving weekend, but now they’re starting them in October so people don’t crowd their stores later, creating a potentially dangerous situation during a pandemic.

And with more people expected to shop online, retailers are trying to avoid a rush of orders closer to Christmas, which could lead to late packages and more expensive shipping. Many had a hard time keeping up with the surge in buying when shoppers were locked down in their homes during the early days of the pandemic. Even Amazon, which has spent 25 years building warehouses
