Jumia slashes prices of goods by 50 percent

25 November 2015, 18:13

Lagos - Jumia Nigeria online store says it will give a 50 per cent discount on some of its products to mark Black Friday on Nov. 27.

This is contained in a statement in Lagos on Wednesday, signed by the Managing Director of the online mall, Mr Fatoumata Ba.

The term, ‘Black Friday’, was coined in the 1960s to mark the unofficial kickoff to Christmas shopping season in the U.S.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that it was not an official holiday in the U.S. but shops and shoppers use the opportunity to buy goods at reduced rates.

The Jumia online Store listed some of the products to be discounted to include Infinix Hot 2 and PS4 by almost half of their original costs.

The store said it would open for sales at midnight on Nov. 27.

"The Infinix Hot 2 will be selling at 50 per cent discount and the PS4 will be available at a jaw-dropping 45 per cent discount.

"Jumia Fashionistas, Michael kors, New Look, Ralph Lauren and more have offered to give 40 per cent discounts on their products,’’ it said.

The statement said the deals could also be viewed on the Facebook Event Page, all day on Nov. 27.

It said that buyers could leverage this to stay connected to everything as it happens, as they would be the only source of information to Black Friday shoppers.

"We sincerely offer our deepest condolences to those who would be missing out on this epic Black Friday Deals.

"To our brothers and sisters in the e-commerce sector all working on Black Friday, while everyone is shopping their heart's fill, we offer a moment of silence.

"For the shoppers that will get all the best deals on Black Friday, we doff our hats,’’ the statement added.
