Black Friday is one of the biggest technology sales events of the year, and we’ll be bringing you the best deals right here.
In the last couple of years, the influence of Black Friday has crossed the oceans and reached India, thanks to growing e-commerce platforms and a digitally native youth population.
Black Friday is still fairly new in India though, and unlike other big festive shopping periods such as Diwali, it’s very much restricted to e-commerce sales.
Each year we are seeing more and more discounts provided on Black Friday, especially by the e-commerce twins Flipkart and Amazon, and the sales are expected to start on November 24.
There’s no official announcement from the e-commerce giants like Flipkart and Amazon about their involvement in Black Friday 2017 in India just yet, but we’ll let you know right here as soon as their plans are announced.
When is Black Friday 2017 India sale?
This year, the Black Friday falls on November 24, and many of the retailers are already preparing for the day. Black Friday is always the Friday that immediately follows the Thanksgiving holiday in the US.
As we approach the date, we’ll bring you all the latest from the major retailers in India on when (and where) their discounts will be available.
How important is Black Friday for India?
As most of us know that Black Friday originated from the US but is slowly being brought in several nations. As already mentioned, Black Friday follows Thanksgiving holiday, which is not of any relevance in India but the term Black Friday is now becoming a global phenomenon.
While Indians get to see a Tsunami of festive offers around Diwali, it’s never enough when it comes to price cuts on gadgets. Even the online shopping culture has brought in the trend where shoppers slug it out to claim the best deal available during the period.
E-commerce giants like Flipkart and Amazon battle it out during such sale events and sell record number of products. These companies leave no chance to participate in sales, so we can expect them to turn up for the Black Friday sale in full glory this year. We can expect some amazing deals on electronics during this period.
Slowly but steadily, India is becoming a huge market for e-commerce players that is pretty evident with the kind of interest biggies like Amazon have in this market and the way homegrown ecommerce leader like Flipkart is competing with Amazon. It is great to see the demand and supply growing at such high pace. In the end, it benefits the consumer and that’s what they hunt for.
So this November, expect all the major retailers like Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm, Shop Clues, and more to be running deals across every range of products. Black Friday is traditionally the home of deals on electricals, clothing and shoes, but you can also expect hot promotions on other major categories.
