Walmart is holding its Big Save Event starting at 7 p.m. EDT on, Sunday, October 11th, to entice early holiday shoppers before Amazon’s Prime Day and Target Deal Days on October 13th and 14th, 2020.
Although Walmart’s Big Save Event runs from October 11th through October 15th, there is always a chance some of the best deals will be sold out before the 15th.
To ensure it offers gifts expected to top wish lists during this unique holiday season, Walmart has increased inventory in electronics, with a focus on TVs, laptops and video games.
“Over the past six months, our customers have been shopping differently, and we expect that will continue into the most important shopping season of the year – the holidays,” Scott McCall, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for Walmart U.S., said.
“We’ve heard from our customers that many plan on starting their holiday shopping well before Black Friday and that they’re looking for gifts that fit their current lifestyle. So, we’ve adjusted our strategy to adapt to these new shopping preferences – we’re offering more of what they want now, earlier than ever, and all at the best prices.”
Walmart Big Save Event starts at 7 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Sunday, October 11, 2020.

To prepare for an expected increase in online shopping this holiday season, Walmart will hire more than 20,000 seasonal associates in its eCommerce fulfillment centers across the country.
“The holidays are always a special time, and this year, we think the season will mean even more to our customers. As more of them turn to online shopping, we want to ensure we’re staffed and ready to help deliver that special gift to their loved ones while continuing to fulfill our customer’s everyday needs,” Greg Smith, executive vice president for supply chain for Walmart U.S., said.
“We’re also proud to be able to continue to provide employment opportunities across the country when it’s needed most.”
