Walmart’s Biggest Black Friday Seller Was a 29 Cent Towel
Black Friday has come and gone, but not without incident. Many reports of fights, injuries, and even one shopper losing their life have come in from around the country. Most of these melees were over “big discounted” items like TVs, gaming systems, and more.
Can you believe though that the biggest selling item on Black Friday at Walmart was none of the above? Would you believe it was simply a towel?
Well, it was.
A 29 cent towel to be exact.
Walmart has announced it sold 2.8 million towels during the sale. That ahead of the 2 million TVs, 1.4 million tablets, and 300,000 bicycles.
Walmart spokeswomen Deisha Barnett told NBC:
We’ve seen at-home items like towels and sheets and even Rubbermaid Tupperware become popular on Black Friday at our stores.
Alot of people are either hosting guests for the weekend or preparing for guests for the holiday season.
So what was the deal exactly? A six pack of washcloths selling for $1.74, that breaks down to 29 cents a towel. Below you can witness shoppers going crazy for the towels, so much so you see them being thrown around.
I had a friend several years ago tell me she saw two old ladies fighting over towels on Black Friday. Back then I didn’t believe her but after reading this, I can see it.
HAHAHAHAHAHA I JUST WITNESSED TWO PEOPLE FIGHTING OVER A ONE DOLLAR TOWEL AT WALMART
