Black November Is The New Craze This YearThe world's largest retailer is pulling forward by nearly a month serving big deals on items like TVs and Tablets that were originally reserved for the day after Thanksgiving and so-called Cyber Monday.
Last year, Wal-Mart offered about 100 holiday deals online right after Halloween, but the offerings were focused on home decor.
It Chaos Wont last For Long
Retailers also say that there's more pressure this year, because the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas is six days shorter than in 2012.
Wal-Mart, which started deals at its stores Thanksgiving evening last year, hasn't said when it will start doing so this year.
But the retailer is also trying to offer its shoppers anywhere, anytime access and using its website as a weapon in the holiday wars.
The Holidays Wars
Marketers started promoting the Monday after Thanksgiving as "Cyber Monday" in 2005 to push people to shop online.
Such moves are expected to help fuel the company's online sales, which the company forecast to increase 30% to $10 billion in its current fiscal year.
And, big retailers like WalMart and Amazon.com want holiday shopping to start yesterday! But, the big reason is that Thanksgiving is late this year creating 6 fewer days for shopping.
