To boost its sales with Apple products, McMillon told the media that Walmart is going on full sale for all Apple-branded products. This includes the iPhone 5, iPod, iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6 which is going for $50 a piece, the lowest-priced of the bunch, this coming Black Friday.
"We had too many in our warehouses that were not picked up during the pre-order phase due to an error with the system from Apple, so we're going to put them on sale," McMillon addressed the press. He explained that instead of risking themselves losing profit over unsold units, they're going to resell them at a lower price on Black Friday.
They made it clear, however, that they will not be available online or for pre-order again. It will be a first-come-first-serve basis. Security will be upped due to the hype surrounding the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. This is to prevent any minor scale stampedes that are expected to occur during the opening of Walmart stores nationwide.
