Not sure what Black Friday is or where to get the best deals? Fear not, we’ve got all the answers here…
What is Black Friday?
Originally an American tradition beginning on the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday has now become the biggest shopping day of the year in many more countries around the world, including South Africa.
What does Black Friday mean?
There’s no confirmed reason why it is called Black Friday, but it’s most likely because it is when many shops see their biggest profit, moving from the red into the black.
When is Black Friday?
This year, Black Friday falls on Friday 25th November. It is always the Friday right after Thanksgiving (which falls on the last Thursday of November every year).
So, where would you find all these massive discount deals in South Africa? Here’s a list of shops you can visit on Friday for Black Friday sales:
