Singles Day Spain
Singles Day Spain is a less well-known day of amazing sales. This year it lands on November 11th, 2021 and offers perhaps some of the most incredible sales on some of the largest online shopping platforms in the world. The origins of Singles Day is quite interesting. It was started in China as an unofficial holiday for anyone who happened to be single at the time. People celebrated in various ways, but it eventually evolved into a day for singles to treat themselves to items they wouldn’t normally buy. Shop took advantage of all those sales and turned it into the largest shopping day in the whole world.
Now, most of these sales are saved for those living in China, but Alibaba will be host huge Singles Day sales where you can find amazing deals and have them shipped to you here in Madrid.
Black Friday Madrid
This year Black Friday in Madrid lands on November 26th, 2021, but sales will extend throughout the entire weekend. In fact, some shops have even opted to start offering deals the entire week leading up to Friday and in some cases, even several weeks before!
