VIZIO Announces Record-Breaking Black Friday Week

VIZIO, America’s #1 LCD HDTV Company, announced today that U.S. consumers purchased over 280,000 VIZIO HDTVs during the week of Black Friday 2009. This was a 40% increase over VIZIO’s Black Friday sales in 2008.  The increase was driven in part by VIZIO’s high performance HDTV offerings with features such as TruLED backlights with Smart Dimming, fast 120/240Hz refresh rates and a full product range from 19” to 55” to fit any American’s holiday dream.
“Thanks to the strength and efficiency of our valued retail partners such as Costco Wholesale, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Target, BJ’s Wholesale, Sears, DELL, Nebraska Furniture Mart, BrandsMart, and Tiger Direct. VIZIO has achieved another record-breaking year of Black Friday sales of HDTVs, Blu-ray players, high definition sound bars and high performance HDMI cables,” stated Laynie Newsome VIZIO Co-founder and V.P. Sales and Marketing Communications. “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."
