Singles Day Shopping Carnival

Hot 681 views. 2017-11-14 18:01

Share to:

November 11th, known as China's Single's Day, has become a shopping carnival since 2009. According to the report, Alibaba's trading volume amounted to 120.7 billion yuan within 11 hours on that day, which surpassed the last year's total. I am not surprised at this data at all because I have witnessed the disordered scenes in Cainiao post houses last year.

 In some people's view, it is an excellent chance to buy luxuries and necessaries at a low price on Singles Day and this carnival not only benefit consumers, but also manufacturers and traders. What's more, the tremendous sales on Alibaba's platform, such as Taobao and Tmall, reflected the level of consumption of Chinese people is having a great boom in recent years. Therefore, we really should cheer up for this annual shopping gala.

As far as I'm concerned, it's not advisable to clean up our pocket buying unnecessary products because of their"low price". Furthermore, numerous rubbish used to pack parcels would be left and consumers' personal information is likely to leak.

All in all, shopping on Singles Day has both advantages and disadvantages, we should keep a cool head during this day. As for me, I have not bought anything last Saturday because I am so poor.

My heart is filled with bitterness, but I try not to show them.

I just want to say that shopping on Singles Day is hard to control, because many goods are discounted.

When we go shopping, we are easy to spend a lot of money buying something unnecessary on an impulse. I think a shopping list is effective to cut the chance of unreasonable purchase.

I was one of the purchase army in fact. But I deny it that I am not irrational buyer who are crazy about shopping. I just bought what I need badly. And I think it's very substantial. Anyway, I stand on your point that we should not buy unnecessary staff. It is insane.

In my opinion, the man who completely boycotts the the Singles Day carnival is conservative, while the man who crazily shops on Singles Day is also not sensible.

Mayun's success make me believe that innovative ideas and experiment is vital to start up a business. Therefore, we should not ignore our novel thoughts because it might be valuable and practical.

It is inevitable to do some shopping as we can not produce everything by ourselves. Shopping online costs less money and it's convenient, so don't be upset.
