Tech lovers can add Apple to their Black Friday shopping itineraries: Today, the company announced on its website that it’s holding a one-day-only sale on Friday, November 25.

This is the first time that Apple has offered a Black Friday promotion since 2014. Last year, the franchise opted out of the day-long commercial extravaganza, citing employee welfare as the reason.

So far, there’s no word on why Apple changed its mind (though revenue declines might be a possible explanation), or which products are going on sale. But as Mashable points out, the company’s homepage features an Apple watch (its display reads "Fri 25: Save the date"), so it’s possible that the tech giant might offer discounts on hardware this year. In 2014, Apple simply offered customers iTunes gift cards, valued from $25 to $10, if they purchased qualifying products.

Sale details are scarce, but Apple’s homepage lists Black Friday perks including free two-day delivery on in-stock items before 5 p.m. and extended in-store hours at select locations. We suggest checking back for additional details later this week—and if you're planning to brave the crowds at a brick-and-mortar store this Friday, remember to wear comfortable shoes and get there early to beat the crowds. Good luck!
