Small appliances are featured this year. Toaster, grinder, blender, kettle, sandwich maker, microwave, and hair dryer are the most popular products in this period, says Géraldine L’Ecluse 'Brand Manager' in the store 361. Ensue the latest models of mobile phones, LED or 3D TVs, air conditioners, says Chetan Juggurnauth, 'Sales Representative' in JM pin. Fans, pressure washers, washing machines and refrigerators, adds Nicole Seevraz, sales representative at Galaxy.
These products are very popular for many reasons. "Small appliances are takers because the prices are affordable. On the other hand, it is seen as the perfect gift for many people. For example, there are those who offer a hairdryer their mother or wife, others mower father or spouse or a laptop for their child, "says Géraldine L’Ecluse. On the other hand, she says, many people expect December to offer a new washing machine or refrigerator, if their old appliances may have to be dropped several times during the year.
As for LED TVs, says Chetan Juggurnauth they sell well because prices fell after the finance minister has decided in his Budget to abolish tariffs on TVs up to 32 inches. The sudden rise in the temperature of these days contributes, in turn, boost sales of air conditioners and fans. Some opt for branded products, others buy the cheapest products.
Another factor promotions. "Many people have waited promotions, ranging from 5% to 15% in stores in general and will last until January 13 in some shops, to come and do their shopping. We had people who came to our showroom in November to ask when there will be promotions and only returned this month to buy, "said Géraldine L’Ecluse.
Nicole Seevraz note, for its part, that Mauritians are increasingly tracking the prices: "If some buy the products they want directly, others are just window shopping. They look at the price, compare with other shops where they made spotting before performing their purchases. People are more cautious this year. "
"It is true that today people think two or even three times before making their purchases," added Géraldine L’Ecluse.
In stores, we also note that Mauritians are shopping late this year. One explanation is that some have waited for their year-end bonus before deciding to make "some follies."
Another observation: people pay more cash by making their purchases. "This may be because they are waiting for the right time to shop," says Chetan Juggurnauth. If the way Mauritians do their shopping has changed, still stores, meanwhile, do their best recipes in this holiday season!
