Konga, Nigeria’s leading online shopping mall, has promised shoppers mouthwatering deals during the 2017 Black Friday Yakata sales. The shopping frenzy will run from November 6th to 10th, with Konga slashing prices at jaw-dropping rates on tens of thousands of consumer goods.
E-commerce brands Jumia, Yudala, and Konga are competing to be the platform that records the highest traffic of shoppers during the shopping season. Jumia has launched Black Friday Festival, which will run for 31 days from November 13 to December 13, 2017, while Yudala launched ‘Mid-Day Madness’ from October 30 to Wednesday, November 1, 2017, as pre-Black Friday shopping frenzy.
Konga CEO, Shola Adekoya, said preparation has been concluded to make this year’s shopping season memorable and exciting for shoppers. “We are expecting a buoyant Black Friday Yakata. Black Friday Yakata kicks off the holiday shopping season for us retailers and as Nigerians are looking out for the very best value for their money, Konga will be giving them a platform to source the best deals. Our customer service team are already receiving hundreds of inquiries concerning what we will be offering this year across all our customer touch points; so we have strong indications as to what our shoppers are on the lookout for.
“Our merchants are mobilized and ready to sell their stocks at super-heavily discounted prices to our customers throughout Nigeria. As e-commerce continues to grow at an incremental rate in Nigeria, we are prepared for a massive influx of traffic, from both existing and new customers, who will benefit from the largest range of consumer goods online, as well as speedy and reliable order fulfillment”.
In a press statement, the e-commerce platform stated that “Black Friday Yakata will have prices falling in a big way more than ever before as Konga gives back to Nigerian online shoppers with the benefits of huge discounts on leading consumer goods. Last year, at its peak, the company was processing over hundreds of orders within the hour from its Lagos-based headquarters and sold hundreds of thousands of items during the sale event. This year, Konga expects its marketplace to generate over N5bn during Black Friday Yakata, making it the busiest shopping season in the company’s history.”
