Black Friday is the name given to the shopping day after Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving is the fourth Thursday of every November and the following day (Friday) is regarded to as Black Friday and is regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.
It was originally called Black Friday because so many people went out to shop that it caused traffic accidents and sometimes even violence in the US.
We only knew about it in the US & UK some years back. However two of Nigeria’s biggest online shopping stores have brought black Friday to the Nigerian shopping experience.
So get ready as the stores are coming out with huge discounted sales even as much as 70% to attract consumers to their stores during the shopping season. On Jumia you can get Samsung Galaxy S5 for as low as N41,500 and a PlayStation4 with Fifa15 for N60,000 and lots more. Konga also has huge discounted products that would be revealed on Friday as well.
Last year one of the online store experience huge traffic to the site that is crashed and this time around they are prepared so keep you fingers crossed and bank accounts loaded so you can buy that expensive item you have always dreamed of.
Nigerians are eagerly waiting that as soon as 12Midnight people have started placing orders. So feel free to shop with the store that offers the best discount as I will also be hovering between the two stores looking for the best discounted products.
I hope I finally get my Play Station 4 this time around 😉
