For many major retailers this year, the period leading up toand has become one long, drawn-out sale filled with Black Friday discounts. And a lot of the deals will coast on through the holidays and beyond, so any gifts you didn’t get during the holidays, you can reward yourself with later (as has been the holiday shopping trend in recent years). Home Depot is one major retailer that’s liberally redefining the term “Black Friday”: The retail giant’s Black Friday sale kicked off Nov. 6, and will run right past Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday through Dec. 2. Check out all of these great deals on the most essential Home Depot items.
If you’re looking to beat holiday shopping crowds and want exclusive early access to sales items, Home Depot’s month-long sales event features Black Friday savings on power tools, vacuums, grills, kitchen appliances, electronics, furniture and interiors, and more. You can also save on holiday decor, including trees and inflatables.
Below, we’ve rounded up all the best deals from the event. These are the sales we think will be worth a shopper’s time and attention. And be sure to check back, because we’ll be updating this list periodically as more deals become available and others expire.
