The sale which happens once a year before Christmas, is whereby supermarkets, tech stores, clothing retailers as well as service providers across the country give up to 80 percent off goods and services for more than 50% discounts.
Black Friday is the day when customers are bound to get everything they need from groceries to clothing and electronic/ electrical products at the lowest rates possible.
This year’s edition has included more online sales rather than actual physical items and as such, to avoid long day queuing in shops, customers can make their shopping online from various shop outlets across South Africa.
The day which has been well advertised on state and private media including social networks has finally arrived, and it’s a shopping madness across the country.
Black Friday is set to run for the whole day until shops closes.
