Will Walmart Be Open on Black Friday? What You Need to Know About 2020 Plans

Walmart’s Black Friday deals are some of the most anticipated savings of the season.

This year, though, the brand announced it will not be opening early on Thanksgiving Day as it has in the past; the decision to remain closed is the retailer’s way of showing its appreciation for its employees in this difficult year.

Why Walmart Is Closed on Thanksgiving Day

“We know this has been a trying year, and our associates have stepped up. We hope they will enjoy a special Thanksgiving Day at home with their loved ones,” Walmart U.S. president and CEO John Furner said in a release. “We are certainly thankful to our people for all of their efforts.”

Will Walmart Be Open on Black Friday?

Walmart will operate regular hours on Wednesday, Nov. 25 and will reveal store hours for Black Friday, Nov. 27, at a later date. Though it will not open Thursday evening like previous years, Walmart is still set to offer a selection of unbeatable Black Friday deals on apparel, electronics and more. Last year, Black Friday sales kicked off at 6 p.m. and included savings on Ugg boots, Roku televisions, Apple AirPods and more must-have products.
