This sale wants to help local businesses bounce back

By: Pam Pastor

Lazada kicked off June with the Lazada 6.6. Bounce Back Sale, promising twice the number of sellers and brands compared to last year. 

This is the shopping platform’s way of giving back to their loyal consumers while also supporting local brands and small businesses in recovering from the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic like the one that Lora Leigh Drammis has. 

Expect big discounts during the sale, held from June 4 to 6. Get Havaianas Hype Flip Flops Mens for P687 at 45% off. They were originally P1,249. Apple AirPods 2 with Charging Case? They used to be P9,590, they’re now just P7,690. Binge-watch on a bigger screen by getting a Devant 50-inch SMART UHD TV at P18,000 from P26,450. Crazy about Gundam? Gundam PG 1/60 Perfect Strike Gundam (Gunpla) used to be P16,999.75—it’s now at P13,500

Lazada worked with the DTI Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion in making sure that the sale highlights plenty of local products and businesses too. Over 400 MSMEs under DTI Go Lokal and DTI Virtual Trade Fair are participating. 

“We have continued to onboard more brands and sellers since the start of the ECQ to help them get started on their eCommerce journey. We want to keep on supporting our sellers, especially our local SMEs, recover from the effects of COVID-19 through our Bounce Back Sale,” says Carlos Barrera, Lazada Philippines’ Chief Operating Officer.
