Don’t bother driving to your local Walmart after Thanksgiving dinner this year—it won’t open as it has in years past for early Black Friday sales. However, you won’t miss any deals, because Walmart is holding three separate sales events throughout November. Dubbed “Black Friday Deals for Days,” the national retailer will be offering deep discounts on the home products, technology, tools, and toys that top buyers’ wishlists.

With pandemic-related shopping concerns at the forefront, Walmart is spreading out its best deals and encouraging customers to shop online as well as in their local store. Here’s how to shop safely and get the best deals.

Shop Online First

To give at-home shoppers a chance to snag great deals, Walmart’s three shopping events will each start online. The next morning, Walmart will open local stores at 5 a.m., where even more deeply discounted deals can be found. Online shoppers can take advantage of 2-day home delivery or convenient curbside pickup.
