Regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It is the one time in a year where customers are offered exclusive deals on products or services including unbelievable discounts that can go up-to 80% across all product categories, and special sales hours to overwhelm them.

This year’s campaign will feature discounts of up to 80% off on popular brands such as Apple, Samsung, Nokia, Johnson & Johnson, Jameson, Pampers, Bata, Woolworths, Hisense and many more.

While the popular campaign is offering consumers affordable pricing on a wide assortment of products ranging from home essentials to the latest tech, it is also supporting SME’s and local vendors whose sales were greatly impacted by the COVID-19 restriction measures enacted earlier in the year.

“This year’s Black Friday campaign is different from our past campaigns. It comes at a time when a lot of our vendors are struggling to get back on their feet after being affected by COVID-19. This campaign will therefore help them to leverage the hype and excitement around Black Friday to reach more customers,” said Jumia Uganda CEO; Ron Kawamara in a press statement.
