Yep, the long awaited Black Friday deals are here again. A day or days of the biggest discounts of the year from your favourite stores.

Black Friday originated from the United States of America and is one of the major shopping days of the year. It usually falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving (another American holiday). The term “Black Friday” originated in the 1960s to mark the kickoff to the Christmas shopping season. “Black” refers to stores moving from the “red” to the “black,” back when accounting records were kept by hand, and red ink indicated a loss, and black a profit. In the 1960’s, the police in Philadelphia irritated by the congested streets, clogged with motorists and pedestrians, called it “Black Friday”.

Here in Nigeria, Black Friday sales/deals have become a fad and a time to look forward because of massive discounts and also considering its closeness to the Christmas season, it has become a time to shop ahead for the season at very low prices.

This year the major online stores are rolling out the drums big time.

The deals would be available on all of Jumia’s websites – Jumia Mall, Jumia Food, Jumia Car, Jumia Market, Jumia Travel, Jumia House and Jumia Deals, with upto 70% discounts.
