Amazon Prime Day: Holiday shopping gets early start; Walmart, Best Buy, Target join in

NEW YORK (AP) — Halloween is still weeks away, but retailers are hoping you’ll start your holiday shopping now.

The big push is coming from Amazon, which is holding its annual Prime Day sales event Tuesday and Wednesday, kickstarting the holiday shopping season. It’s the first time Prime Day has been held in the fall, after the pandemic forced it to postpone from July.

Walmart, Best Buy and Target are also offering online deals over the same two days, hoping to lure deal seekers.

“Beat the holiday hustle,” Amazon’s site said on Tuesday. “Holiday savings start now,” a message on Target.com said.

There’s good reason for the early start. Retailers are worried that a rush of online orders later could lead to shipping delays in November and December. And stores want to avoid big crowds inside their stores during the pandemic. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said

But if you do get all your shopping done on Prime Day, does that mean Black Friday is no longer a thing?

Does Walmart have an Amazon Prime Day-style event? Yes, and so do Targ

One of the biggest online retail sales of the year kicks off tomorrow. Amazon’s Prime Day 2020 launches on Tuesday, October 13, and runs until Wednesday, October 14. Needless to say, Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale is a massive event for the company, with hundreds of thousands of items heavily discounted.

However, this year Amazon’s Prime Day will face stiffer competition—and from brick-and-mortar retail stores of all places. Three of America’s largest retailers—Walmart, Target, and Best Buy—have all announced competing sales this week in order to challenge Amazon’s dominance.

Will this be enough to put a dent in Amazon’s siphoning off online sales? That remains to be seen. However, Target, Walmart, and Best Buy may have an ace up their sleeve. The three brick-and-mortar retailers are offering optional curbside and in-store pickup for orders placed online, which means people who don’t want to wait for items to be shipped to

The 170,000-square-foot store is located at The Shops at Ledgewood Commons shopping center (461 Route 10, Ledgewood), which is in a section of Roxbury Township in Morris County.
