BJ’s Wholesale gears up for Black Friday week

BJ's Wholesale Club is spreading its Black Friday deals across an entire week (Sunday, Nov. 24 through Sunday, Dec. 1), excluding Thanksgiving on Thursday, Nov. 28. The retailer says it is offering more than twice as many Black Friday deals this year as it did last year.

BJ's will also launch its first exclusive Facebook coupon program with the BJ's Members Choice Campaign. Beginning Friday, Nov. 22, people will be able to cast a vote each day for five days, choosing between two featured products. There will be deals on electronics on two days, a deal on toys, on gifts, and on jewelry. BJ's will email all of those who voted on a deal a printable coupon for the winning item. The final day of voting will be Tuesday, Nov. 26. To participate, people should visit the BJ's Facebook page.  

"The BJ's team has outdone itself this year, creating the best Black Friday line up that I've seen in years, and I'm sure that the products will delight our members," said Laura Sen, president and CEO of BJ's Wholesale Club. "While BJ's offerings will bring many people into the clubs during the Holiday Season, we are pleased to offer Black Friday values throughout the Thanksgiving week. And, I'm proud that BJ's Clubs are, once again, closed on Thanksgiving, allowing our team members to enjoy the holiday. We always must balance what is best for our Team Members with our sales goals."
