Thou­sands of bar­gain hunters flood the shops on Black Fri­day

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - CYPRUS -

Thou­sands of Cyprus con­sumers look­ing for a bar­gain queued up out­side shop­ping malls and stores from the early hours to take ad­van­tage of Black Fri­day sales.

Malls around the is­land saw one of their busiest re­tail days, with some re­ports talk­ing of chaos pre­vail­ing in shops.

My Mall Li­mas­sol’s Head of Oper­a­tions Ka­tia Panayi told Stock­watch that con­sumers were lin­ing out­side the stores from as early as 7.30am, with the first stores open­ing at 8am.

“Ac­cord­ing to in­di­ca­tions so far, both vis­its and sales will be higher than those of last year’s Black Fri­day,” said Panayi. She said at lunchtime some 15,000 peo­ple had walked through the doors of My Mall Li­mas­sol, 10% more than last year.

The Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer of the Mall of Cyprus Kypros Had­jistyl­lis told Stock­watch that the day started very well with sales at a higher level than last year.

“There is a lot of in­ter­est in elec­tron­ics,” he added.
