Costa Rican retailers get ready for Black Friday

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Costa Rican businesses are preparing for the celebration of Black Friday this week, which like in the United States means deep discounts and promotional pricing for shoppers.

A year ago, the Finance Ministry said online shopping would be taxed, despite exemptions being applied in previous years.

Those exemptions had helped Costa Rican consumers develop “Black Friday fever”. Now, with taxes being applied to online purchases, many Costa Rican stores are running discounts of their own.
