Black Friday 1English Version

'Ques for 10 hours, waiting for the shop to open'

adds comments from GRTU CEO Ms Abigail Mamo

"Black Friday starts with a Bang!"

"We are receiving positive feedback from all over Malta and Gozo. People started queuing very early with one individual queuing since 11:00PM yesterday evening.

"Although customers are numerous with some shops experiences ques, businesses have redeployed employees from the office to assist customers and this is easing flow."

"Although it is too early to compare this Black Friday with last years', it is already very evident that there is a positive trend"

Nhar il-Ġimgħa, Black Friday, uħud mill-ħwienet se jiftħu mis-6 ta’ filgħodu. Mal-awtoritajiet qed nipprovaw innaqqsu l-problema tat-traffiku.” 

“Nhar il-Ġimgħa, Black Friday, se tkun kullimkien. Ċerti ħwienet se jiftħu minn meta jisbaħ u oħrajn se jestendu l-ħin tal-għeluq tagħhom saħansitra sa nofsillejl biex jilqgħu l-klijenti għall-offerti. Mill-informazzjoni li għandna mill-membri tagħna, il-konsumatur nhar il-Ġimgħa se jkollu festa ta’ xiri bi prezzijiet eċċellenti,” tgħid is-CEO tal-GRTU, Abigail Mamo.

Din il-ġurnata toffri sfidi fosthom it-trasport. Għadaqstant il-GRTU sejħet laqgħa flimkien ma’ uffiċjali ta’ Transport Malta, il-Pulizija, kif ukoll rappreżentanti taċ-ċentri ta’ xiri ewlenin sabiex speċifikament niddiskutu t-traffiku u t-trasport dakinhar ta’ Black Friday. 

Hemm qbil fejn il-Pulizija u Transport Malta se jkunu qed imexxu l-massimu ta’ riżorsi possibbli f’areas identifikati bħala l-iktar importanti u potenzjalment problematiċi għal din il-ġurnata biex it-traffiku jibqa’ miexi u jinħelsu l-bottlenecks. Il-GRTU għamlet ukoll kuntatt ma’ diversi kunsilli lokali ewlenin u appellajnielhom biex jiġu evitati inkonvenjenti u permessi li mhux ta’ urġenza estrema f’din il-ġurnata partikolari għal pajjiżna.
