Christmas is almost here! Are you ready? According to the National Retail Federation, as of the second week in December, the average person has completed only 46.5 percent of their shopping(1). That’s why Walmart is holding the “BIG Christmas Event” geared specifically to the millions of last-minute shoppers.
Starting at 8 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 17, Walmart’s “BIG Christmas Event” will offer its lowest prices of the season on toys, games, electronics, bikes and more. In addition, Walmart.com is giving customers an extra day to shop by extending its shipping deadlines. Walmart’s holiday shipping options not only ensure gifts arrive in time for Christmas, but have also saved customers approximately $36 million in shipping(2) fees.
“Our customers are telling us there’s still a lot of shopping to do before Christmas,” said Duncan MacNaughton, chief merchandising officer for Walmart U.S. “Moms are feeling stressed to ‘get it right’ and not forget anything, so we’re excited to give them another great day of savings to help them purchase gifts, stocking stuffers and the holiday meal at our lowest prices of the season.”
