Thank you for joining us today, Eliška! Black Friday is just around the corner. Can you tell us when it will take place on Alza this year?
This year, we've extended our Black Friday deals beyond just one day. Our discounts will kick off on October 30th and last until November 26th. This generous window of time provides our customers with ample opportunities to browse our extensive selection of products and seize the incredible savings we've lined up.
So, if you still haven't purchased Christmas gifts or need anything else, now is the ideal time to take care of everything. This extended Black Friday period ensures you won't miss any fantastic deals.
That's great news! And what kind of discounts can we expect to see?
This year's Black Friday at Alza is shaping to be our biggest and best yet! We've planned everything meticulously, and the magnitude of our discounts truly reflects our commitment to exceptional value.
We're offering discounts of up to 80% on a wide range of products, spanning electronics, appliances, toys, and home goods. This isn't just about a few select items; thousands of products, including Apple devices, are on sale at unbeatable prices.
That's a pretty comprehensive range of products. Can you give us some specific examples?
Certainly! In the electronics category, you'll find incredible deals on smartphones, TVs, laptops, headphones, and other popular tech gadgets. We'll have discounts on refrigerators, washing machines, dishwashers, vacuums, and more for home appliances. And for the kids, we'll have plenty of savings on toys, games, and educational products.
It sounds like there's something for everyone during Alza's Black Friday event! So, when exactly will the Black Friday discounts at Alza end?
Our Black Friday discounts will run until November 26, 2023. Customers will have one month to take advantage of our incredible savings. We want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to save big during our Black Friday event. That's why we're extending the sale for a longer period this year.
I recommend customers check with us next week to ensure they get all the exciting promotions.
And even after Black Friday ends, customers can still find great deals at Alza?
That's correct. We're always running promotions and offering special discounts on various products. So, even if you miss out on Black Friday, there will be plenty of other opportunities to save big at Alza.
Black Friday is still in full swing, so I'm curious how you've handled the increased demand and orders. Have you faced any challenges or issues with delivery?
Black Friday is always a busy time for us, and this year is no exception. We've been working diligently to prepare for the event and are pleased that things have run smoothly. The peak is expected this upcoming weekend, and we're fully equipped to handle the surge in demand.
Black Friday has always been a big event for Alza, but did the demand this year surprise you in any way?
We were prepared for a high volume of orders this year, but the demand has exceeded our expectations. We've seen a significant increase in sales across all categories, and we're particularly pleased with the growth in our mobile phone, laptop, and home electronics categories.
Thank you for sharing that! So, does Black Friday represent the peak of pre-Christmas sales for Alza, or do you see a gradual increase in sales leading up to Christmas?
Black Friday is a major sales event for us, representing a significant peak in pre-Christmas sales. However, we also see a steady increase in sales throughout November and December.
From Alza's October survey, where we asked more than a thousand customers when they buy gifts, it emerged that most customers buy gifts in November and the first half of December (66% of 1,164 respondents). 23% of customers leave Christmas gifts to the last minute and hurriedly search for them a week before Christmas.
How would you compare this year's Christmas gift shopping to last year? Are there any noticeable differences in consumer behavior or trends?
We're certainly seeing some shifts in consumer behavior this year compared to last year. With rising inflation and economic concerns, customers are becoming more price-conscious and actively seeking good deals. They're also carefully considering value for money, prioritizing quality gifts at reasonable prices.
That makes sense. And what role does shipping play in this year's Christmas shopping?
Shipping costs have become a significant factor in purchasing decisions this year. We understand that customers want to avoid additional expenses, so we've introduced our AlzaPlus+ membership program, which offers free shipping on all orders daily. Customers have well-received this, and it's contributing to a more positive shopping experience.
That's a valuable perk for customers. And what about delivery speed and convenience?
We recognize that customers want their gifts to arrive quickly and efficiently, especially during the busy holiday season. That's why we've expanded our delivery options, including our revolutionary "Order before midnight and get it in your AlzaBox by morning" service. This has been a huge success, and we're proud to offer this level of convenience to our customers.
It sounds like you're making a conscious effort to address customer concerns and make their holiday shopping experience as smooth as possible.
Absolutely. Customer satisfaction is our top priority, and we're constantly looking for ways to improve our services and meet the evolving needs of our customers. Providing value, convenience, and a positive shopping experience is essential for making the Christmas season unique.
Thank you again for your time, Eliška. And I encourage everyone to check out Alza's amazing Black Friday deals and ongoing holiday promotions.
My pleasure. And remember, Alza is your one-stop shop for all your Christmas shopping needs. We have everything you need to make this holiday season memorable, from the perfect gifts for your loved ones to the festive decorations to transform your home. Happy shopping!
