Carphone Warehouse breaks company records on Black Friday
Carphone Warehouse broke all company records on Black Friday when it sold a new mobile phone contract every three seconds.
Sales of pay monthly contracts were up by 70 per cent year-on-year with high quanitities of Apple and Samsung devices helping to drive the sales forwards.
SIM-free handset sales were also up by 182 per cent again thanks to high numbers of Samsung handsets being sold, namely the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Carphone Warehouse MD Jeremy Fennell said, "We know our customers are always looking for great value and we are thrilled with the feedback and sales so far. Our website has been particularly busy with more than 2.2million site visits since we opened our ‘Black Tag’ event on Monday."
Fennell also added, "We’re expecting this to continue over the weekend and into next week as we offer deals through to Wednesday. Reflecting how people actually want to shop, we are delighted that our decision to spread savings across ten days instead of focusing on just the one day of discounts has gone down so well with our customers."
It has also been relealed that more than 100,000 customers visited the Carphone Warehouse website between midnight and 5am on Black Friday.
