DENVER, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- More than a month before Thanksgiving, appliance manufacturers such as GE, Frigidaire, and LG Appliance, and retailers, are launching Black Friday sales. Chuck Ewing, CEO of Appliance Factory Outlet, a local appliance retailer, attended a meeting of large appliance dealers in Chicago this summer, where retailers were told to look for Black Friday pricing to start for appliances and electronics around November 1 this year, or even earlier.
"These are the lowest prices I've ever seen in the appliance industry," said Ewing.
Big box stores like Sears and Lowe's, and Appliance Factory Outlet's early roll-out was precipitated by LG Appliance's Black Friday prices for retailers that were brought out in July of this year. This trend of lowering prices earlier and earlier in the season may be due to a recent trend in consumers not wanting to go out on the official Black Friday date, according to a recent article in the New York Times.
This early discount pricing is a major benefit to consumers, giving them the chance to get lower prices without the rush, and the shopping convenience of avoiding long lines and of being able to get their appliances and other products before the holiday season.
