Konga, Nigeria’s largest online shopping mall, is gearing up for its busiest shopping season of the year, Black Friday Yakata. The shopping frenzy will run from November 6 - 10, 2017 with Konga slashing prices at jaw-dropping rates on tens of thousands of consumer goods.
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 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.
Building on the success of Black Friday Yakata, the Konga team is looking to make 2017 bigger yet. Konga CEO Shola Adekoya, remains optimistic for a blockbuster 2017. He says, “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 enquiries 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 stock 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 fulfilment”.
