The much anticipated festive season sale from Amazon India, the Great Indian Festival sale will kick start from October 17 in India. This time, the Great India Festival will be for a month-long making this the longest and biggest sale of the year.
Recently Amazon announced the date for the Great Indian Festival sale. The company said that the sale would start on October 17 and will go on for a month. The month-long sale will help small businesses and sellers to reach more customers across the country thereby giving more time and opportunity to both the consumers and sellers on the platform.
The decision comes at a time when smartphone sales in India aren't showing signs of a revival, barring the continued demand from sub-Rs.15,000 segment. Even in the Prime Day sales, though the company added over a third more users, demand had buzzed around the accessories and products with smaller ticket sizes.
