Walmart Super Store sales were on this past Thursday. Shopping on Thanksgiving day just does not seem right though. This was however the first day that I ever did this on an actual holiday, and I did it at a Walmart Super Store. I want to make sure that you understand that I did this out of complete necessity and not because I treasure shopping more than time with my family. This is not the case. In fact we always eat early because I am a huge Dallas Cowboys fan and I always watch the game. So if anything I gave up the first couple of quarters of my favorite teams game more than time with family.
The main reason I decided to do this was because I wanted to get the XBOX 1 for one of my kids, and the fact of having him disappointed on Christmas Day over shopping on Thanksgiving day was an easy option for me. I was able to get just what I set out for and I did not have sacrifice but a few hours. It was well worth it, and I would like to thank the Walmart managers that made this shopping day a success in my neighborhood.
The XBOX 1 HYPE
I sure the XBOX 1 is worth all the hype. Because that would just make all the sacrifice including the price $499.99 plus tax worth it all. Now let’s discuss how Walmart handled this Thanksgiving day sales and promotions. I am going to give them a 90 out of 100. Mostly because of the way they set the whole day up. Shopping for high ticket items or high in demand items, began respectively at intervals throughout the day. For instance the XBOX 1 sales commenced at 6:00 P.M. Other high end items at 7:00 P.M. and the last of the high end items at 8:00 P.M.
Here is basically how the Walmart Super Store sale worked out. Lines formed up at 5:00 P.M. you made an initial line, and then you got a number with a corresponding bracelet number. Mine was 18. Now they had approximately 160 XBOX 1’s. So I was good to go. Then at 6:00 P.M. they called the numbers one by one, and you stepped up and purchased your XBOX 1 and happily left the store. At least I, happily left the store. Total time spent approximately 2:30 hours to target gift. Not bad Walmart, not bad at all….
