2020 has been an unusual year and has disrupted the annual events. This year’s Amazon Prime Day shifted from July to October due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Even if you missed out on Amazon Prime Day’s sale, there is no need to worry as Walmart, Target, Best Buy and others have holiday sales that will carry you and your need right to December.
Black Friday 2020
This year’s Black Friday is on November 27th, 2020. This is followed by Cyber Monday on 30th November 2020 along with Cyber Week, Cyber Month, and Cyber Season. So deals of all kinds should be expected by customers in the upcoming weeks.
Since a lot of stores such as Best Buy, Walmart, and Target are closed on Thanksgiving meaning more retailers will push their sales online. Therefore, a lot of people will be cashing on the deals online. It will not be wrong if people hope for sales this entire November. The biggest sales can be expected on 23rd November or for some retailers even sooner. These sales are expected to last till at least Black Friday or even to Cyber Monday.
Impact of Corona Virus pandemic on Black Friday
When we say that 2020 has been an unusual year, it isn’t hard to guess that it is due to the coronavirus pandemic. Like any other event this year, Black Friday is also affected by the Corona Virus. A similar strategy as Amazon Prime Day can be expected to be played out on Black Friday. Play it safe, offer good deals, and stay away from logistical issues. Walmart, Target, and Best Buy will be looking to overcome the distance that was created by Amazon in its Prime Day sales with an excellent marketing strategy. Since Amazon is more likely to follow its Prime Day strategy it makes a tough competition for its competitors.
Are there going to be shipping delays for Black Friday sales?
Most of the large and well-established companies such as Amazon and Walmart had a huge time to prepare for Black Friday. They also had time to rework their strategies that might be different from last year due to being pandemic. While it can be assumed that these companies will have sort out most issues but there might be some lapses in shipping. This is due to the fact that the shipping company can only ship a particular amount within a short time. So while placing your orders it should be considered that there might be delays in shipment for certain products.
