25th November(and onwards till the end of November) is going to be a huge hit in Pakistan’s online shopping history. As more and more online shopping websites are entering the realm of black Fridays, some calling it white Friday as well. But who cares for Black or white label it’s all about the discounts.
So what’s black Friday? Black Friday is the day following Thanksgiving Day in the United States (the fourth Thursday of November). Since the early 2000s, it has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US, and most major retailers open very early (and more recently during overnight hours) and offer promotional sales.
Black Friday in Pakistan will be the same story. E-shopping websites like Daraz, Kamyu and Homeshopping have announced to celebrate this day by offering huge discounts on items available on their websites. Details about each of three are discussed below:
Daraz.pk will offer huge discounts up to 70 percent on most of their items on their list. It will accesble on 25th novermber and onwards till the end of november. Black Friday sales and promotions can also be availed from Daraz.pk’s mobile app.
Kamyu.pk will be offering discounts up to 57 percent on different items available on their website for sale. It would be on November 25th, 2015.
The discounts are applicable on the following items, Fragrances, Cosmetics, Apparels, Electronics (Mobile phones, headphones and laptops).
HomeShopping has branded their 25th November discounts as White Friday instead of Black Friday. Homeshopping will offer discounts up to 70 percent. Thing noticing about homeshopping’s white Friday is it will last for last week of November.
Deals and discounts will be available for mobile phones, computers, laptops, home entertainment, watches to clothing, fashion accessories, home appliances, perfumes, kitchen and equipment and almost everything else available on the website.
Another thing that caught our attention was HomeShopping’s claim that they won’t be offering leftover items at discounted prices like other retailers. Instead, the company will be getting the actual Black Friday deals from the US to Pakistan which, according to them, are “the real deals”. With HomeShopping’s international delivery network, here’s hoping that the US discounts are more or less translated to the Pakistani market.
The black Friday of 2016 is anticipated to be a huge hit, because the thrifty nature of Pakistanis will surely make it happen. After all it’s a ‘sasti deal’.
