Bentonville, Ark. – Organized protests by Walmart workers nationwide on Black Friday did little to dampen Thanksgiving period sales, the discount chain said.
Walmart reported 22 million customer visits on Thursday, more than last year, with many shoppers responding to a 10 p.m. CE sale Thanksgiving night. That promotion guaranteed in-stocks on three doorbusters – an iPad 2, Emerson 32-inch LCD TV and an LG Blu-ray player – and garnered an “amazing” turnout, the retailer said.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
