What have you set your sights on when it comes to this year’s Black Friday shopping?
Perhaps you’re after a leather couch, a gaming console, gas stove, colour-coordinated luggage set or a personal air-conditioner? And how about a 65″ smart UHD TV, an Apple, Huawei or Samsung smartphone, or a hoverboard?
Those are only some of the products that were cleaned off the virtual shelves of bidorbuy.co.za during the 2018 Black Friday event. Last year, shoppers rushed to take advantage of substantial Black Friday discounts across all of bidorbuy’s 30-odd categories of products, but the biggest hit was the home and living category, which recorded a 48% increase in sales in relation with previous year’s Black Friday. Other favourites were cell phones, electronics, toys and hobbies, gaming, and sports and leisure, with the last two categories staging a surprise by breaking into the top for the first time.
Black Friday has become a global shopping event. We at bidorbuy are working hard to meet (and hopefully exceed) the rising expectations of South African online shoppers.
