Could COVID-19 end Black Friday holiday shopping tradition?
The busiest shopping day of the year has been waning for a while, but did the COVID-19 pandemic finally bring it to an end?
Mark the calendar and grab your wallet, the holidays have arrived at Kohl’s. And the retailer is giving shoppers a sneak peek at its Black Friday deals.
The Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin-based company posted a preview of the highly-anticipated holiday circular on its website early Friday and shared details of the “Black Friday Week” sale exclusively with USA TODAY.
Kohl’s also started a five-day preview sale which lasts through Tuesday, Nov. 10.
Like other retailers, Kohl’s is breaking with tradition and closing stores on Thanksgiving amid the coronavirus pandemic. Kohl’s will start its Black Friday Week sale on Nov. 22 and a “Super Deals” sale will start online on Thanksgiving.

Best Buy, Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Macy’s, Target and Sam’s Club also have shared previews of their deals and how they will handle sales at a time when they are trying to spread out demand and reduce crowds.
“This holiday season is like no other and with holiday shopping starting even earlier, we’re excited to give customers great opportunities all month long to find the perfect gifts for everyone in their life at an incredible value they can only find at Kohl’s,” Greg Revelle, Kohl’s chief marketing officer, said in a statement sent to USA TODAY.
Extra Kohl’s Cash and rewards
