You might think it's a bit early to start thinking about holiday shopping (I mean, we haven't even dressed up in costumes and gone trick-or-treating!), but it's time to start shopping for everyone on your nice list. There's going to be a shortage of decor, gifts, and toys this year, so you'll want to take care of presents as soon as possible. Plus, it will make for a much less stressful season when you get everything checked off on your to-do list. To help you plan, Walmart recently announced the company's plans for Black Friday, which will begin at the beginning of November.

For the second year in a row, the corporation will be featuring its ″Black Friday Deals for Days,″ aimed to offer discounts without the chaos the day after Thanksgiving can bring. Plus, you can take advantage of these promotions online, so you can stay home and stay safe, too. There will be three official events throughout November, though there are deals you can shop for right now on the Walmart website while supplies last. Each event has a start time, but if you're part of the company's loyalty program, Walmart +, you'll be able to take advantage of the deals early.

Walmart Black Friday Event One

The first event begins at 7 p.m. EST on Wednesday, November 3, and will continue in stores at 5 a.m. on the 5th. (Walmart + members can start shopping at 3 p.m. on the 3rd.) Some of the deals you'll be able to shop include a 55-inch TCL 4K Roku TV for $228, an L.O.L. Surprise! Amazing Surprise Doll set for $64, and Keurig K-Compact for $35.

Walmart Black Friday Event Two

Starting at 7 p.m. EST (3 p.m. for Walmart+ members) on Wednesday, November 10, shoppers can take advantage of the second event. Some of the promotions include a Shark EZ Robot Vacuum for $288, a Blackstone 22-inch Griddle that comes with a hardcover and carrying case for $117, and an HP i3 Laptop for $279. The event will continue in stores at 5 a.m. on Friday, November 12.

Walmart Black Friday Event Three

Walmart hasn't revealed its plans for the third and final event, though the news release notes that it will feature the "biggest, best savings of the season." The company is likely to reveal the savings in the next few weeks.

Along with the online and in-store specials, Walmart also revealed updates to its delivery process. The company will be extending delivery hours until 10 p.m. local time, adding more delivery windows, and allowing more items to be delivered. (For example, artificial Christmas trees and alcohol will be deliverable from 1,500 locations.) The Black Friday Deals for Days kicks off soon, so mark your calendars to shop the discounted products and complete your holiday shopping.
