Many of you were probably looking forward to the Walmart Anniversary Sale flyer this week, only to find that there is simply a regular flyer. It seems that Walmart has decided to forgo its annual Anniversary Sale this year, which usually takes place this week. Instead, their flyer for this week places emphasis on the fact that they have lowered the everyday price on over 1000 items in store.
The Walmart Anniversary Sale was one of their biggest and best ads of the year, typically on par with, or even better than the Black Friday and Boxing Day ads. Some of you will be more disappointed than others by the decision to drop the Anniversary Sale. I can’t say there was ever much in their anniversary flyer that had me running to Walmart, but for some it was an opportunity to kick off some holiday shopping. The one item I can recall myself purchasing year after year during this sale is the Rubbermaid container set, however that seems to go on sale for a deeply reduced price several times a year anyhow.
What are you thoughts on Walmart omitting their Anniversary Sale this year? Are you disappointed that it is not taking place?
