What is Black Friday?

Everyone who loves to shop will understand what it means to look forward to the last Friday in November. All shoppers are convinced that this is one day in the year where you can get the best discounts on any and everything. This day is popularly branded Black Friday.

On Black Friday, no item is off limits. The bargain can be achieved on electronics, fashion, home appliances, furniture, baby clothes and gardening equipment.

It is an interesting fact that people who are not crazy about shopping shop on Black Friday. No one can resist the influence of a good thing.

In November 2013, Nigeria’s number one online retailer, Jumia.com pioneered the concept of black Friday in Nigeria and was able to create a buzz that saw unique visitors to the website reaching over a million. As a first attempt, this number is impressive. However, you can bet that this year will be even bigger and better as analysts say numbers should reach record breaking heights.

Black Friday is a day that all the Christmas shopping can be achieved at the lowest possible prices so make sure you are prepared to bag the best bargain for friends and family.

In a survey of some Black Friday Shoppers in Nigeria on social media, many respondents acknowledge Black Friday is one of the best shopping experiences ever. And despite initial skepticism due to the brand new shopping concept, they weren’t disappointed with prices and offers they met on the day.

It's not the last Friday of November. Its the 4th friday of November. Sometimes November comes with 5 fridays. So officially Thanksgiving is every 4th Thursday of November, and black Friday must be the day after.

Black Friday is an American thing.... What business do Nigerians have with an American event ? This inferiority feeling and usurping everything American is senseless

Anonymous said...

Ovo, everyone shops and no one is disputing that. What is being said is that 'black friday' is a copied concept and does not suit our culture. Try telling a market woman/man that today is black friday for discounts and I bet they will tell you attribute it to some occult practice.

As a learned person, I expect even a Professor to b happy if corrected as to a mistake or misunderstanding...even happier if he finds out he was wrongly corrected out of further findings and in turn corrects dat person again...
This is someone trying to point Linda in d right direction, simultaneously educating every reader of dis blog rightly, am sure Linda wud even apprct dis guys piece..nd dia u are, uttering such statement.."Story for the gods..." Exhibiting simple stupidity out of absolute absence of common sense!! Olamide Badoo should even slap u for biting him..Dat tym expended on typing such silly comment wud have been enough for u to absorb such fact nd b a beta person, an essence of 'The Internet'...I c pple like u and do notin but pity d future of this country! #Nohate
