When do the Home Depot deals start?

Home Depot's Black Friday sale starts on Friday, November 6, and runs until December 2.

"This ad release date is much earlier than 2019's release date (Nov. 25)," the company wrote on its website.

"Home Depot's Black Friday 2020 sale runs Nov. 8 to Dec. 2 and features savings on tools, home goods, holiday decor and more." 

What does the CDC say about Black Friday?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention classified “shopping at crowded stores just before, on or after Thanksgiving" on a list of higher-risk activities, according to USA Today.

“We’re not doing the big doorbusters but will be open on (Black) Friday and closed Thanksgiving like we always are," Home Depot president Ted Decker told the newspaper.

Other retail giants - including Walmart - will also have deals.

Curbside pickup has been available at Home Depot ever since the pandemic began.

“We're really running effectively Black Friday-type traffic every day, more or less since COVID,” Decker told USA Today.

More than 225,000 people have died from coronavirus in the US.

The special sales circular was unveiled on October 26.

The company is trying to avoid a customer surge that would be problematic during a historic pandemic.

“Not wanting to drive that sort of traffic and crowds to our stores, we are extending the holiday period,” Ted Decker, the company's president and chief operating officer, told USA Today.

“We will still have values, but they will start in early November.”
