Amazing Facts About the Flipkart Big Billion Days Sale
Flipkart organized the first Big Billion Days sale on 6th October, 2014. Few people know why the company chose this date. The date 6th October has emotional significance to the founders of Flipkart. Sachin and Binny Bansal started Flipkart from a flat with number 610. It was a two-bedroom flat in Bengaluru from where they started as an online book selling website. Thus, the company chose 6th October or 6.10 to mark the journey of the company’s founders. Flipkart achieved massive sales amounting to $100 million in 10 hours on that day. The company later termed this day as “The Big Billion Day”. But, the company had to face stern criticism for website issues and price disparity.
