According to ShopperTrak’s predictions, four of the 10 busiest shopping days will occur between Dec. 20 and Dec. 24, with Super Saturday (December 21, 2013) being the second most-popular shopping day after Black Friday.
“When we reported our record-breaking Black Friday results, we said we weren’t done yet, and we meant it,” said Duncan Mac Naughton, chief merchandising and marketing officer, Walmart U.S. “As our customers count down the final days until Christmas, we remain focused on offering them great prices and the hottest gifts to place under their Christmas trees.”
Customers can continue to take advantage of Walmart’s Christmas ad match, which enable shoppers to match competitors’ prices before or after a purchase. With Christmas ad match*, which covers thousands of items, including electronics, toys and grocery products, if a customer happens to find a lower price on an item already purchased through Dec. 24, the customer brings in the receipt and the competitor ad to the customer service desk at a local Walmart. The store will match the price and give the customer the difference on a gift card.
