Black Friday used to be the day after the US holiday of Thanksgiving, the fourth Thursday in November. Year 2018 Black Friday, therefore, is today Friday November 23.
Worldwide, Black Friday is now regarded as the first day of the Christmas shopping season, a day on which retailers make many special offers.
The day is tagged Black Friday because so many people go out to shop that it caused traffic accidents and sometimes even violence; not anymore with online shopping.
Black Friday is a period retailers sell off old stock at greatly discounted prices with shoppers taking advantage of the reduced prices to shop for Christmas.
Nigeria is not left out in the Black Friday shopping tradition, even if Nigerians don’t observe Thanksgiving like the Americans.
With these in mind, Concise brings you some of the best deals by major online/offline shopping malls and in Nigeria:
