Just a few hours into the launch of ‘Yakata’, Konga’s version of the global ‘Black Friday’, the largest online mall in Nigeria recorded a massive flood of eager shoppers on the site as many Nigerians are leaving no stone unturned in making away with the biggest deals of the year. The Sales kicked off yesterday, one day ahead of the traditional Black Friday.
Yakata is the major event that the online shopping scene has been building up to all year. Konga.com got shoppers excited when it announced that the sales would be holding for the second year running in preparation for the Christmas and New Year festivities, giving shoppers the opportunity to make massive savings on their purchases. In addition to these great deals, the company is also giving its customers free deliveries on orders over five thousand naira.
According to the Chief Commercial Officer for Konga, Mr. Mark Russell remarked that, “We received thousands of orders within the first few hours, they have been pouring in from virtually every state in Nigeria and interestingly from several other countries as well. With this trend, the sales figures for Yakata this year would be running well up to 900% of sales from the 2013 Yakata.”
Whilst some of the hottest deals such as the Haier Thermocool 3KVA remote control generator which sold at a remarkable N53, 750 at a discount of almost 60%, the Lenovo A3300 Tablet which sold at N18, 000 instead of N30,000 were rushed by many customers, there are still thousands of incredible deals up for grabs on Konga.com. Several fashion brands are selling at up to 50% off and most categories still have items enjoying discounts of up to 70% off.
The sales will still run on Friday, 28th November, 2014, allowing more Nigerians the opportunity to make massive savings on their favourite items within this period.
