Today’s so-called ‘Black Friday’ online sales bonanza has engulfed the catering equipment sector it would seem, with suppliers such as Nisbets, Catering Appliance Superstore and Cater-Kwik offering substantial discounts for a limited period.
Nisbets is offering up to 60% off selected equipment as part of a deal that will run into the weekend, while Alliance Online is currently tempting buyers with a 15% discount on all crockery and glassware until the end of the day.
Catering Appliance Superstore has picked through its most sought-after and popular items to strike some attractive offers, including deals on Instanta water boilers, Parry display counters, Panasonic microwaves, Polar refrigeration, Lincat cooking equipment and Kitchenaid mixers. It said the offers are “strictly today only”.
Leading internet distributor Cater-Kwik, meanwhile, insists that while customers are likely to be barraged with a raft of special prices from suppliers, its offers are “not like the rest”.
Deals publicised to its customer base this morning include 50% discounts on some product lines. However, buyers will need to ring the firm as its biggest deals are of a strictly limited stock quantity, it warned.
Offers include a Cater-Cool stainless steel bottle cooler that has been slashed from £329 to £164 and a Burco 20-litre automatic water boiler down from £254 to £127.
A Fimar microwave has been reduced from £149 to £74, while a Cater-Wash 16 pint glasswasher is now available for £389 instead of £779. The company has also slashed £30 off the price of a £230 LEC undercounter freezer.
Cater-Kwik is also offering customers a selection of Black Friday voucher codes which can be used to claim money off of products such as Blue Seal 6 burner ovens, Hobart passthrough dishwashers, Lincat twin tank fryers and Bonzer cocktail kits.
