Whether you’re looking for Christmas gifts, holiday packages or big appliance purchases, Black Friday is the best day to do so. If you’re ready to brave the queues and hunt for the bargains, this list should help you know exactly where you need to be on the day.
When Is Black Friday
Save the Date. 23rd November 2018, Black Friday sales and specials will hit South African stores. Originally an American tradition, Black Friday happens on the Friday after Thanksgiving – a holiday in the USA which falls on the 4th Thursday of November.
What is Black Friday
The day is believed to mark the beginning of the Christmas shopping season, and so stores build up anticipation, promising promotional prices. Most shops open their doors earlier than usual to allow the crowds in.
Consumers queue for hours, sometimes even from the night before. Sales stock is limited so getting through the doors in time, as well making sure you have a hold of the item before the many other shoppers, is crucial.
Online Black Friday Deals
Online deals can be slightly less hazardous and stressful than actual in-store sales. Many stores who have an online store will have specials both in-store and online. With a few clicks you can have all your Black Friday shopping done in the comfort of your own home.
