Shopping fever hit Dubrovnik today as Black Friday attracted thousands of shoppers with huge discounts. The American shopping phenomena of Black Friday became popular in Croatia a few years ago but now most shops have got into the swing of this day of sales and offer healthy discounts. TV commercials have been running for the past few days advertising special offers to mark the day.
Every shop in the main shopping centre in Dubrovnik, SUB City, had their own discounts, from 20 to 70 percent. And the chance to save money brought masses of shoppers to the centre. Just the traffic jams to get into the centre stretched for a few hundred metres and it was a challenge to fins an empty space. “This is one of the busiest days of the years so far, the cars keep coming and coming,” commented one of the centre’s security guards. It seems that Black Friday is also now a Croatian shopping tradition.
