Black Friday

Iranians flock to Van for Black Friday shopping

Thousands of Iranians have flocked to the eastern province of Van to benefit from discounts amid the Black Friday shopping days that started on Nov. 26 and will last until the weekend.

Causing a "Black Friday crowd" at the Kapıköy Customs Gate in the province's Saray district, many Iranians filled shopping centers and shops in the city.

Shopping sale days to bring 60 billion Turkish Lira boon to retail industry

November's shopping spree is expected to boost the sales of both physical and online retailers by as much as 60 billion Turkish Liras (around $6.2 billion).

Retailers are keenly waiting for the Singles' Day on Nov. 11, the "Legendary Friday" on Nov. 26 and the Cyber Monday on Nov. 29.

Legendary Friday is the Turkish equivalent of Black Friday.

Retailers express grievances

The retail market is particularly unhappy with the third lockdown that begins Thursday in Attica, stressing that neither the full closure of the market since November nor the partial reopening of stores afterward proved efficient against the pandemic and the recession.

With retail experiencing its second lockdown in a year, representatives of big chains and smaller businesses alike are insisting that stores must open as soon as possible with strict measures in place, as courier companies and e-shops are finding it increasingly difficult to meet the increased demand.
