It’s Singles’ Day on Wednesday and New Zealand’s fastest-growing online retailer TheMarket, alongside Visa, is launching a generous giveaway worth NZD $11,000 in celebration of the country’s singletons.
Labeled as the world’s largest online shopping sale, Singles’ Day continues to grow in popularity around the world each year and has recently started to catch on in New Zealand.
TheMarket CEO Justus Wilde says Singles’ Day sales in 2019 rose by 116 percent on TheMarket’s platform, which shows people are jumping at the available deals.
“As Singles’ Day starts to increase in popularity, we’re extending the sale so online shoppers don’t miss out. We expect to see ten times sales growth this year due to the spike in the event’s awareness, increased range to over two million products, and greater brand awareness for TheMarket,” says Wilde.
“Due to Covid-19, supply chains have been disrupted and materials such as some plastics have been diverted for the manufacture of personal protective equipment instead. As a result, we have seen more customers starting to shop for Christmas earlier, so they don’t miss out on buying their children presents such as the ultimate Star Wars LEGO set.”
TheMarkets Singles’ Day sale, which includes an 11 percent discount side wide on top of any other discount, will cover electronics, beauty, health, fashion, and home and living categories. Brands such as Cotton On, The Warehouse, UGG, Noel Leeming, J.Crew, and Catwalk will be included in the sale.
Partnering with Visa, TheMarket’s $11,000 giveaway is open to Visa card holders who will receive an entry every time they use their card on the site. The giveaway includes prizes such as new iPhones, BBQs, Espresso machines and vouchers to spend on TheMarket.
“This is the perfect opportunity to kick off the early Christmas shopping and pick up some deals. While shoppers do not have to be single to take advantage of our sales, it’s a fun excuse to find a bargain,” says Wilde.
Key deals include:
- 30% off Cotton On for two days only
- Hot deals on selected small appliances, audio and more from Noel Leeming
- 11% off a huge range from The Warehouse
- 11% off Catwalk storewide
- 20% off J.Crew storewide
- 20% off Madewell storewide
- Amazing gift with purchases from L’Oréal, YSL, Lancôme and Kiehl’s
TheMarket’s Singles’ Day sale will run from Monday 9 November to Thursday 12 November.
