Accra Mall, Ghana’s first large-scale mall, has outdoored huge discounts and a series of activities to excite customers of its retail outlets ahead of this year’s ‘Black Friday’, happening on 27th November.
The Black Friday usually offers shoppers reduction in prices on all kinds of items. Although not a very common experience in Ghana, the day is gradually gaining recognition.
Black Friday is the name given to the shopping day after Thanksgiving which is observed in the United States.
It was originally called Black Friday because so many people went out to shop that it caused road accidents, and sometimes even violence. The Day is expected to see discount deals of between 10 to 90 percent on a wide array of items.
In a press release issued by Accra Mall, Marketing Manager Anthony Asamoah shared details of the clearance sale and other fun activities lined up at the mall, starting October.
“We want shoppers who visit Accra Mall this month to have an unforgettable shopping experience while they enjoy unbeatable discounts. We have a live band session on 21st November and on 14th November, we are inviting both amateur and experienced painters to join us for ‘paint and dine’ at the food court”,he said.
All the shops at the mall will organise Black Friday Sidewalk Sales from 23rd-29th November”, he shared.
The Marketing Manager added that management of the mall will organise a special campaign dubbed ‘Win the Card’ on Black Friday.
Aside the activities for Black Friday, Accra Mall is famous for organising monthly Sidewalk Sales, Easter Sales and Christmas sales to offer the best deals and discounts for all shoppers.
The Accra Mall, commissioned on July 4, 2008, is one of the most modern western style shopping centres in West Africa and the first large-scale mall in Ghana. The mall is an enclosed fully air-conditioned shopping centre.
