Shops prepare for Black Friday rush for bargains
More shops than ever will participate in Black Friday this year after witnessing last year’s immense success when businesses made around €14 million just in credit card payments, the retailers’ association said on Monday.
According to the general secretary of the retailers’ association, Marios Antoniou, last year’s Black Friday sales exceeded expectations.
Speaking to state broadcaster CyBC, Antoniou, said that last year’s success has convinced several business owners who were hesitant as to the idea of Black Friday to join in this year.
“Last year, we were surprised to see consumers forming long lines outside shops. This is something we have never seen in Cyprus,” he said.
