Black Friday at Wal-Mart revealed?

Kissi ne Wal-Mart ki waat lagaa dee.....

Web sites say hot deals will include $398 HP laptop, 12-cup coffeemaker for $4.24.

ByParija Bhatnagar, CNN/Money staff writer




NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Someone may have let the cat out of Wal-Mart's Black Friday bag early -- and it looks like the No. 1 retailer is ready to aggressively battle on prices in the weeks ahead by going very low on some hot products.

And here's what to expect: A Hewlett-Packard Pavilion ze2308wm notebook computer for $398; an HP Photosmart E317 digital camera for $98.88; a Lexmark all-in-one printer, scanner and copier for $39.88; and a 12-cup coffeemaker, food chopper or 2 qt. slow cooker for just $4.24.

Typically Wal-Mart (Research) and other retailers debut the eagerly awaited day-after-Thanksgiving specials a few days in advance. Wal-Mart hasn't officially debuted its Black Friday ads, but the information appears to have been leaked to a few Web sites.

"Last year, Wal-Mart didn't discount heavily on Black Friday and the first week after. What happened? Comparable sales fell 3 percent," said Marshal Cohen, chief retail analyst with market research firm NPD Group. "This year, Wal-Mart's making sure that it's not caught with pants down again. I'm shocked to see how low Wal-Mart is prepared to go this year."

The day after Thanksgiving is dubbed "Black Friday" because it's when retailers are said to finally move out of the red (representing losses) and into the black (profits). It also marks the start of the four-week shopping blitzkrieg leading up to Christmas.

Brad Olson, the founder of Gottadeal.com, a Web site that markets itself as the "official Black Friday deals site," told CNN/Money that he obtained Wal-Mart's Black Friday ad last week from "someone close to the production process for the ads."

"That's why I'm confident that these Wal-Mart deals are legitimate," Olson said.

Wal-Mart spokeswoman Gail Lavielle told CNN/Money that the information on Gottadeal.com "did not come from us." "We have not released any information about Black Friday," she said. "As long as something is not officially released by us, we can't vouch for it."

According to Gottadeal.com, which posted the list of Wal-Mart's Black Friday bonanza on blackfriday.gottadeal.com, the retailer is apparently hoping to lure holiday shoppers by slashing prices on consumer electronics, DVDs, home products and toys.

Cohen said he saw the list on the Internet about a week ago and believes it to be legitimate.

"I don't think Wal-Mart intended for it to get out this early because there's an element of surprise involved. It definitely does create a buzz, but it also give its competition time to respond," said Cohen. "I think Wal-Mart will use some products to pull holiday shoppers in and use these as big bargain loss-leaders."

But he doesn't expect Wal-Mart to offer bargain basement prices on the must-have items like Apple's iPod Nano, which the retailer recently announced will be part of its "Home for the Holidays" campaign set to kick off Tuesday.

"You don't want to destroy the pricing structure on hot products by discounting everything deeply," Cohen said. "The rule of thumb is don't be overly promotional if you don't need to."

Re: Black Friday at Wal-Mart revealed?

Hmm.. You know.. many stores never carry all teh items advertised on the catalog or special promotion. I have been to one such sale, not the post Thanksgiving sale, but a regular promotion. WHen I looked for the item advertised, it was not in the store. So I asked for help and they said go to the other store. So I went there as I really wanted it. On reaching there they said, they will get more stock next day.

Well, I have stopped going to Wal Mart because the one nearest to my place (in Mountain View) is always very disorganised. Merchandise all strewn over the place. No one to help in case you want to locate something. Absolutely crappy place.

When I had visited my sister in East Coast I visited their local Super Wal Mart which had grocery too. I was amazed how organised it was. How neat and clean and there was enough staff to help.

In our nearby WalMart, if you happen to find some staff, then most likely answer you get is "This is not my dept. I dont know" So I go to the Target store in downtown Sunnyvale.
