Every year, the Chinese community celebrates singles day on November 11th (11/11).
Singles day provides an opportunity for single people to celebrate independence, treat themselves and buy the things they’ve always wanted. Throughout the years, Singles Day has turned into an online shopping day similar to the US’s Cyber Monday.
Downtown Iowa City will be celebrating this day, and some downtown retailers will be offering the traditional 11% discount.
Participating downtown retailers:
– Beadology Iowa, AKAR, Om Gifts, Sicily, Active Endeavors, Tailgate, Glassando, Discerning Eye, Cold Stone Creamery
