Walmart has mapped out its holiday plans. The bad news is, they are hiring 40-thousand less workers this year. The good news? Holidays sales and discounts start on October 1. With inflation biting into our wallets, it will be a “subdued” shopping season according to experts. Look for Target to up its game for the holiday. They are hiring 100-thousand seasonal workers and their deal days start October 6 and run through the holiday season. Look for other retailers to follow suit.
