Black Friday, the biggest shopping day of the year, will be here in just a few weeks.

Information about the huge annual shopping event is quickly emerging, including specifics about dates, times, deals, and sales.

Walmart hasn’t published its ad for this year yet, but last year’s ads showed deep discounts on electronics, toys, games, and more.

The retailer’s full shopping season started on November 1, but the best deals will start on Thanksgiving night and continue into Friday, November 28. The sales will include matching the price of any item people find for sale cheaper in other stores or online, and mobile check-in to speed up picking up items from the store.
