The Home Depot has jump-started the holidays by releasing its first Black Friday sales ad with pricing that begins tomorrow and is good through Dec. 2.
The four-page circular’s lead item is a four-piece all-stainless Amana brand kitchen suite featuring tall-tub dishwasher, 24.7-cubic-foot French door fridge , OTR microwave oven and 4.8-cubic-foot electric range for $1,992, a savings of $1,224.
There’s also a similarly bundled Samsung kitchen suite for $1,994, a savings of $1,452.
The nation’s No. 3 majap merchant is also offering deferred 12-month financing, and an instant $450 discount when purchasing two or more qualifying appliances priced at $398 or more.
Other brands that figure prominently in the promotion include Whirlpool, LG, Whirlpool, Frigidaire and GE.
Once a relative non-event for the appliance industry, at least compared with the more traditional Independence Day and Labor Day sales periods, Black Friday has become a major battleground for white-goods dealers and manufacturers in recent years.
