Roundup: Holiday and New Year Deals and Discounts by Pakistani e-Stores
It seems the latter part of 2015 has brought some new traditions for Pakistanis when it comes to shopping, both online and in-store. The nascent e-commerce industry in Pakistan has seen a big boost this year. Long-time runners like Daraz have finally strengthened their foothold in the industry while several new entrants have brought new and innovative ideas to the market. At the end of it all, it’s the customers who are benefiting by opting for online shopping in Pakistan.
A growing number of online retailers offer numerous deals that can be availed by consumers who sit comfortably at their homes. Despite the growing presence of online retailers and the ever-growing 3G internet usage in Pakistan, most of the local population is unaware of this handy service available to them. E-retailers took a different approach this year by offering massive discounts to get those people, who are yet to experience the e-retail services, to shop online.
Online retailers took the front seat during Black Friday sales recently and offered massive discounts, a first for Pakistan. The biggest deals of the year brought many new consumers to try out e-retailers for the first time.
To take the new tradition ahead, some of the retailers are offering Christmas Holidays and New Year Deals and discounts just like the Black Friday promotions witnessed earlier. While searching for every single retailer offering discounts is a tough job, we have done all the hard work and made a list of all the retailers offering these discounts available for everything from fashion items to electronics.
