With Independence Day approaching, Koreatown retailers have launched significant special pricing and discount events. These sales, extending through Labor Day, offer a prime opportunity to save money.

Industry experts note that with logistics costs rising again, product prices are expected to increase by the end of the year. This makes Independence Day an ideal time to purchase desired items at lower prices.

Various Korean businesses, including those selling furniture, electronics, and household goods, are offering a range of discount events that could save customers hundreds of dollars.

“Businesses are going all out to capture consumer demand with aggressive discount pricing, aiming to offset poor sales performance in the first half of the year, an industry insider said. “With logistics costs having quadrupled since the beginning of the year, product prices are likely to rise in the second half, making this Independence Day the best time to buy value-for-money products.”

– Massage Chairs
Bodyfriend is offering special prices on the new Leonardo DV and Phantom ROVO models through July 4. Customers who purchase the Leonardo DV will receive an ELIZA reclining massage chair ($2000 value), and those who buy the Phantom ROVO will receive a GLED mask ($1500 value).

Health Korea has made online purchases more convenient through its Amazon Brand Store and has introduced a 48-month interest-free installment service to reduce the burden of purchase costs. The DIVA Massage Chair is priced at $8999.99, the Gravity Massage Chair at $3999.99, and the KAIROS Massage Chair at $2999.99, all with significant discounts.
