Feedback at 5:00: Is It Too Early For Retailers To Begin Holiday Deals? Have You Started Shopping?

Posted: Updated:

Monday's Feedback at 5:00:

From televisions, to tablets -- the world's largest retailer is stepping up its game on holiday shopping. 

Walmart is kicking off its Black Friday sales much earlier this year.

Sales that are usually reserved for the day after Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday will be showcased in an online sales event.

Amazon is also launching a Black Friday Deals Store.

Retailers say they are trying to tackle a shorter shopping season, which is six days shorter than last year.

Do you think it's too early for retailers start these deals?

Have you started your holiday shopping?

It's tonight's Feedback at Five.
