Some large retailers of technical goods have extended Black Friday for several days, often for a whole week, and the discounts they offer on white goods, telephones, small home appliances, televisions, laptops, range from 20 to as much as 60 or 70 percent.
For example, a stove that cost around 27,000 dinars can now be bought for 19,000, the tablet has been reduced from around 22.00 dinars to around 15,000, and the price of a vacuum cleaner has been halved from 22,000 and now amounts to around 11,000 dinars.
Headphones with microphone. so-called commentary over the head, instead of 3,990 dinars, they are offered for 1,900, ie for 2,000 less, which means that at the new price for the same money you can buy two headphones.
Discounts are not only offered on technical goods, so one well-known retailer of bedding has reduced the prices of mattresses and pillows by 20 and 50 percent, respectively.
Thus, the pillow that cost around 3,600 dinars has a new, twice lower price, and the mattress has been reduced from around 39,000 dinars to around 32,000.
Those who have not yet purchased winter shoes, and intend to do so soon, can find models for themselves at a much better price at a discount on the occasion of “Black Friday”.
In some stores, discounts of 30 to 50 percent are offered, so you can save from a few to several thousand dinars, depending on the model of footwear.
Customers who visit stores more often and know how prices move, will certainly be able to more realistically assess whether the discounts are really as much as the traders in large numbers point out, or they first raised the prices and then lowered them, to make the discount look bigger.
And the fact that the discount is higher has its psychological effect on the customer, because when buying a product at a big discount, he will have the feeling that it went well, even when he pays something a little more expensive.
Many customers have already reserved their products days in advance at the price that will be valid tomorrow and are ready to wait in the lines that are certain for “Black Friday”, because they are aware that everything must be paid for somehow, even cheap goods.
When it comes to how he found “Black Friday”, there are more versions.
It is believed that it is so named because American traders began to make a profit after Thanksgiving, that is, to enter “black” from that day, and to come out of the period of losses, when they were “in red”, as they recorded their minuses. with a red pencil.
One of the popular opinions is that this name was created by American drivers and traffic police officers who were afraid of big traffic jams after Thanksgiving in the USA.
