How Stocked Will Dell’s Inventory Be for Black Friday?

Since 2020 has been a remarkably unusual year, some may be worried supply chains may not be ready to handle the Black Friday rush. To help ease our fears, we reached out to Dell requesting info on whether customers can abundant product inventories in-stock this holiday season. Here’s what Michael Collins – the President of Consumer and Small Business at Dell Technologies – had to say in response:

We’re working to fulfill all orders as quickly as possible in our supply chain. But there’s always a possibility for select offers to sell out. That’s why our Black Friday savings event is starting earlier than ever before. We want customers to have the freedom to plan ahead, shop online early and at their convenience.
If a particular product you want is sold out, a chat or phone representative is happy to help you find an alternative. And remember, is updated frequently year-round to help you find the perfect system to fulfill your wish list.”

While it sounds like Dell is trying its best to keep up with demand, it’s still probably a good idea to move on any sales you’re 100% sure about, as even normal Black Fridays can get pretty competitive. At the same time, Collins makes a good point about Dell’s frequent sales—if you want to save yourself some stress, why not just set up a Deal Alert on the products you want and wait for a less contested offer?
