Walmart, Best Buy and Others Are Taking Steps to Keep Shoppers Safe during Holiday Shopping

How to Stay Safe During Holiday Shopping 2020Canva

Share on:

The holidays are known to get a little hectic, especially when it comes to the shopping. Big retail events like Black Friday have been known to create lines, crowds, and even the occasional rowdiness. However, with the Pandemic still strong, stores want to ensure the safest possible experience for their workers and customers, all while still trying to give them great deals. Here are some retailers who are taking precautions on holiday shopping this year:

No Early Morning Hours at Target

On Black Friday, shoppers will not be waiting on massive lines early in the morning to snag good deals. Target is only open during their normal hours on Black Friday this year.

The large retailer is also closed on Thanksgiving Day. This is a way to limit crowds this season in regards to health concerns surrounding the pandemic. However, Target will be offering new holiday deals in different shopping categories each with products available both online and in store.

Free Next Day Delivery at Best Buy

Whether you’re a loyalty member or not, Best Buy is offering free next-day delivery on thousands of items. This plan started on October 22 and is lasting through December 25.

This is the first time this retail store offered a huge variety of free delivery. Even if customers purchase major appliances that aren’t on this deal, they will receive free standard shipping on everything.

This consumer electronics store is also offering same-day delivery and store pickup services, as more than 70% of Americans live within 10 miles of a Best Buy store, and around 40% of online sales are picked up in stores.

Holiday Season at Walmart is Contactless

Holiday season gifts and essential items will be made easily available at Walmart at its physical brick and mortar stores to ensure shoppers have a safe and convenient shopping experience.

Not only that, Walmart is also launching new products lines for the COVID-19 affected generation and increased its inventory and variety of pet products in its e-commerce, mobile app, and in-person stores significantly.

Walmart is also ensuring 100% contactless pickup and delivery services across all its stores and delivery outlets, and stores are offering contactless payment where the customer can pay in a Walmart store contact-free on any register when using Walmart Pay via the Walmart app.

Kohl’s is Closed on Thanksgiving

The Kohl’s team is designing plans to reflect these uncertain times. They’re anticipating more customers to shop earlier and search for great deals on their website and other conveniences, which is what led them to be closed on Thanksgiving Day.

They are adapting their plans in response to changing customer expectations and behaviors. However, Kohls.com and the Kohl’s App will be running and the brand will still be offering Kohl’s Cash deals as well as Drive Up and Buy Online, Pick Up in Store Services for other days.
