Walmart's Black Friday will be business as usual, but customers with the store's app, can get those deals two weeks earlier.

Shoppers today can get Black Friday deals like the a Hitachi 65-inch Ultra HDTV for $599, an Xbox One S 500GB Minecraft Console with Bonus Controller for $279, and a an Acer 15.6-inch Core i5 Laptop for $299, savings totaling $570 for all three, if they have the Walmart app, according to Business Insider.

"I said it before and I will say it again, we will win the season on price — on Black Friday, on Cyber Monday and every day before and after," Walmart chief merchandising officer Steve Bratspies said in a Walmart statement Thursday.

"That means delivering the Black Friday deals we're known for in stores, online and on our app. And, we've secured significant availability of these items. We pride ourselves on not being the retailer who advertises a great price and then only has a few available," he added.

The retail giant told reporters, according to USA Today, that it plans on being well stocked this year as well, with nearly two million tablets and computers, three million video games and more than 1.5 million televisions on hand for purchase in store and online.

Bratspies told USA Today that even though customers can now get deals on the Internet and Cyber Monday (Nov. 28) is expected to play a bigger role for Christmas shoppers, Black Friday will continue to be a peak day for purchases.

"I don't expect to see any kind of decline (on) Black Friday," Bratspies said, according to USA Today. "Traffic continues to grow in the stores while we continue to grow our online business."

Walmart said additional Black Friday deals available Thanksgiving include deals on 11 different televisions, toys, drones, home products, video games and consoles, iPhones, laptops and tablets, some 750 DVDs, fitness products, pajama and slippers, and a trampoline combo, according to the company.
