The Singles' Day shopping event is here.
Online retailers in the UAE are rolling out massive deals this week, with discounts of up to 70 per cent on a number of retail categories.
Also known as Double 11 or 11.11, the shopping holiday originated in China in the 1990s but has won fans around the world — reportedly even eclipsing the famous Black Friday sales, according to Statista.

The day was originally meant to celebrate people who are not in relationships, but Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba jumped on the trend in 2009, effectively redefining 11.11.
Here are a few retailers in the UAE celebrating the occasion with discounts galore.
The online retailer, which is also known for its Prime Day sales, is back with deals across categories including home, kitchen, fashion and beauty.
The sale will run from Thursday to Saturday. As usual, Prime members are given more benefits, such as free international delivery from Amazon US and UK, across eligible deals.
