Where everyone is going gaga about the Black Friday Sale there are some facts that can tell was it successful or just another ordinary sale.
Black Friday seemed more like a clearance sale rather than an actual discount festival on products. Tweets were bombarded saying,
“Black Friday Sale or Blank Friday Sale?”
Some where it said,
“Black Friday is temporary, Juma Bazaar is forever.”
The news of Black Friday in Pakistan went viral when online shopping sites decided to give a great discount on their products. Stores, local shop owners and everyone was excited.
On 25th of November 2017 second Black Friday Sale is in the news in Pakistan.
People nowadays prefer online shopping a lot along with it if there are discounts on their favorite items they take it as a blessing.
Many online shopping websites offered up to 80% discount in Pakistan. Now the problem was people thought that almost all items will have discount of 80% but this was not the case. It was never meant to be. Keeping in view that many sites had exaggerated their deals to attract maximum number of customers. To the disappointment of people the things were quite expensive than they had expected them to be.
The internet connection was one of the major problems. As soon the clock hands struck 12:00 the sites became busy and over loaded. Users had to wait for loading of different products. Different websites started to show a message that addressed users requesting them to login after several minutes.
The deals provided by the websites were not as shown. They had other real prices and not all the products were on sale. The products that were on sale were either cheap, not of much use, simple gadgets like ear phones and mobile covers. The clothes were out fashioned and out dated making some exceptions.
Still many sites managed to attract a large number of users. Any sale bazaar can attract people naturally. The first Black Friday Sale was popular but if it is compared with the recent Black Friday Sale than the scales don’t fall to either side. The both were equally famous. They excited a large group of people.
The next Black Friday is hoped to be better than this one. As the online sites would know the flaws and they will try to overcome them the next time.
It was not a really bad sale, but was less than expectations. So it can be said it was neither the gain nor the loss.
