Black Friday

Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving Day and the Friday before Cyber Monday in the United States. It is a busy shopping day and is a holiday in some states.

Although the concept is relatively new in Nigeria, e-commerce sites have deployed it to woo more customers and reward loyal ones.

On one e-commerce portal for instance, buyers are offered as much as N45,000 discount off a freezer that originally sells for N100,000, while a LED TV that sells for N56,300 is offered for N38,950.

Similarly, a refrigerator with the original price of N107,200 can be obtained for N86,625, while a sandwich maker of N14,450 is offered for N8,400.  A food blender of N52,870 can be obtained for N37, 520.

Another portal gives out a gas cooker worth N77,000 for a discounted price of N65,000.

Gadgets and electronics are not left out of the bumper deal, in one of the popular phone shops that also has an offline outlet, a smartphone worth N47, 000 is offered for sale at a discounted price of N37,000; a tablet worth N115,000 is sold for N61,000; while a laptop that originally sold for N126, 500 can be obtained for N109, 850.
