Walmart today announced record-breaking Black Friday results. Millions of customers, once again, took advantage of the retailer’s deals that began on Thanksgiving Day and last throughout the weekend.

“We said Black Friday is the Super Bowl of retail, we ran a play that only Walmart could deliver and our customers loved it,” said Bill Simon, president and CEO of Walmart U.S., in a statement. “Our Black Friday events were bigger, better, faster, cheaper and safer than ever. More customers chose us, we had the prices and products they were looking for, and we’re not finished yet. Helping families get ready for a great Christmas – and get a lot of great deals while they’re at it – is exactly what we’re going to continue to do.”

From coast to coast, yesterday’s top sellers at Walmart – in stores and online – were big screen televisions, Apple’s iPad mini, laptops, XBOX ONE, PS4 and Call of Duty Ghosts. Customers also bought:

• 2.8 million towels
• 2 million televisions
• 1.4 million tablets
• 300,000 bicycles
• 1.9 million dolls

In addition, hand-held video games and SLR digital cameras were some of the most popular items on Walmart.com.
