By Jim Donovan: With Black Friday falling later than previous years, Sears Holdings announced it has “moved” the shopping holiday – one full week early for Sears and five days early for Kmart – in a pre-sale exclusively for “Shop Your Way” members. Shop Your Way is a free and instant members-only program offered by both stores.
Members can shop more than 1,000 Black Friday doorbusters at Sears.com starting Friday, Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. CST; and 100 doorbusters at Kmart.com starting on Sun., Nov. 24 at midnight CST. Members can also access the early sales via ShopYourWay.com.
Sears’ pre-sale ends Nov. 23 at 11:59 p.m. CST. Kmart’s pre-sale ends at 11:59 p.m. CST on Nov. 24. Pre-sale doorbuster purchases are available for layaway, ship-to-home, Free Anyone, Anywhere Pickup and Free Store Pickup.
