Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., Walmart.com, Amazon.com and Amazon.ca have joined the growing number of retailers that are offering discounts to those who choose to buy lights from a retailer.
The discounts, which are limited to one light per household, are being offered in the retail stores through the Christmas lights campaign, which is part of a wider effort by retailers and developers to encourage consumers to purchase Christmas lights.
This year, retailers have been selling light fixtures and other Christmas accessories to help pay for the holiday.
Last year, Wal-mart introduced a holiday lights campaign that encouraged customers to buy Christmas lights at its retail stores.
In addition to the discounts, WalMart also is offering up to $1,000 in cash back on a wide range of products, including household and household accessories.
Wal- Mart said in a statement that the discounts offer “unprecedented value” to its customers.
“We are committed to helping people enjoy Christmas, and our Christmas lights program offers unprecedented value for our customers,” said Bob Wysocki, chief executive officer and chairman of Wal- mart USA, the U.S. arm of the world’s largest retailer.
Walmart has been a major supporter of the holiday lights program, which started in 2014.
The retailer recently announced that the lights will be available in its store in New York City from December 14 through January 5.
WalMart, which also is the world leader in lighting, has been trying to get more people to choose to purchase light bulbs instead of candles.
Earlier this year, the retailer said it would be offering a discount on new lights through January 1.
For many families, the cost of lighting a holiday tree this year will be a substantial savings.
“It is an extremely valuable Christmas gift that is worth the money,” said Lisa A. Zagri, senior manager of retail marketing for Wal- mar.
“The company has offered its customers the opportunity to receive the gift of a new Christmas tree at a savings of over $100.”
