Black Friday originated in the USA.
As Thanksgiving always falls on the fourth Thursday in November, the following Friday is often observed as an unofficial holiday. Because many people are off work, shops drop prices, usually for one day only, to start the Christmas season. UK shops have since caught on to this trend and it was brought across the pond a few years ago. Between 2010 and 2013, Black Friday gradually built up momentum in the UK. In 2014, Black Friday was the peak pre-Christmas online sales day.
Exactly how “Black Friday” entered the vernacular of consuming Africa and Nigeria in particular is still a bit of a mystery.
Whatever its origins, Black Friday has become nearly ubiquitous in the hearts and minds of businesses and shoppers alike, being used to sell all manner of goods around the world.
Here in Kaduna, only jumia and konga shoppers seem to be having all the fun since many retailers in the city don’t see any need to participate in black Friday.
Well, all retailers in Kaduna except one; Gemz clothing.
If you’re on the lookout for a great deal in Kaduna right now check out Gemz clothing.
The popular tie and dye clothing brand announced on facebook that they would be giving huge discounts on all their products till December 31st this year.
N2500 for shirts and N2000 for T-shirts is a very good bargain if you ask me.
If you know any other Kaduna based brand giving out black Friday shopping discounts, please don’t hesitate to share. 😊
