By: Engy Mohamed It’s almost the end of November, which means holiday season is finally approaching, and so is the biggest shopping event/retail therapy session of every year, Black Friday. So if you just so happen to be celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday (because who cares if it’s an American holiday), you might want to set aside the turkey shopping for now and take a close look at our list of stores taking part in this year’s Black Friday sales (this is also our way of telling you not to leave all the Christmas gift-shopping for later, you’re welcome).

souq The online shopping website is keeping up with their newfound “White Friday” tradition once again this year by giving you all the best deals on everything from appliances, jewelry, electronics to home essentials and even grocery. But why do they call it “White Friday,” you might ask? Well, Souq believes that the color white symbolizes “goodness, completion, and purity,” which is why they chose it to describe the sale that has begun today; the 23rd of November, and should last up until this Saturday, the 25th. White Friday is thus the Arab version of Black Friday, and we couldn’t be more excited!

jumia Another online shopping platform is also participating in this year’s Black Friday trend by bringing you a 12-day ongoing sale that started on the 14th of this month. With insane discounts reaching up to 75%, you might just not be able to resist buying the whole store, but who could possibly blame you?


parfois Parfois is hooking you up with the fanciest accessories for this winter by giving you a 50% discount on ALL items this Friday and Saturday, so be sure to save the date and mark your calendar for the upcoming shopping spree!


b-tech Fancy buying a new phone or appliance but just can’t pay the full amount in one go? Well, luckily for you, B-Tech is joining in on the Black Friday spirit by letting you purchase any of their products in installments with 0% interest! The offer only applies if you’re shopping online, but the good news is that B-Tech provides you with free shipping if your order is above EGP 5,000.

London Cab

mazaya If you listen closely, you can probably hear all the makeup artists, gurus and enthusiasts screaming in the background, and we’re probably about to join them, too because Mazaya is having a 50% sale on selected items from Thursday to Saturday. We advise you to start emptying out your makeup cabinets and make some room for some new products because this will be one hell of a sale!
