Huge Weekend For Vizio
Vizio reported a huge Black Friday weekend this year, selling more than 280,000 HDTVs in the U.S. for a 40 percent year over year increase in the first weekend of the holiday season.
The company announced that of the 280,000 TVs sold, 20,000 were 50″ and larger- a tenfold increase. Vizio also sold 7,000 high-definition sound bars.
“We consistently strive to offer consumers more and are pleased to see the great success of our high performance products which allow us to continue to grow and expand VIZIO products to a wider range of consumers seeking the latest technology at a great value,” the company’s co-founder, Laynie Newsome, said as part of the announcement.
Vizio ran specials through Costco, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Target and several other retailers during Black Friday and the weekend after.
