Is Walmart Really the Best Place for Black Friday?


Walmart has posted a press release regarding Black Friday. While they might be offering price matching, I'm not sure if its really the best store for the time crunch of Black Friday.
In fact, Walmart is one of the only retailers that will price match competitors’ ads on “Black Friday.” Customers simply bring in competitors’ ads and Walmart will match the price of any identical product right at the register, making Walmart the easiest place to save this holiday season.
While it would allow you to do all your shopping in one store, please consider the other parts to this equation.

  1. Does Walmart offer comparable service plans to other, specialized, stores.
  2. Will you still need to shop at other stores? Are they clustered together like a mall or all over town?
  3. What are the time limits on deals? Walmart will probably only match "valid" deals so don't expect to show up in the afternoon if a competitors ad had hours listed.

If the items you want are specifically Black Friday deals at Walmart, it might pay to pick up the other stuff there too. Just make sure you're not going there only because they're offering price matching.

For anyone planning to shop at Walmart on Black Friday, head over to Walmart's website and check out your local ad.  Once at the ad, you can click "click here to get your map" and print out a map of the store showing where all the major Black Friday deals will be located.
