After two years of Covid-19 and lockdown, South African retailers are moving back to the one-day format of Black Fridays past.
However, several big names are blending the old with the new, running month-long deals in a ‘Black November’ style sale, with even bigger deals expected on the day.
Woolworths is following its Black Friday sales format from 2021, unveiling new discounts and deals with each passing week – while Incredible Connection and Hirsch’s have already launched the sales craze.
Other brands will be launching sales sooner than the 25th, with Vodacom promising up to 75% off in its sale launching on 4 November – while others will be extending their deals well into December to capitalise on the festive season shopping rush.
Online retailers are also expected to offer a number of specials on ‘Cyber Monday’, which falls on 28 November 2022.
These are the first batch of Black Friday sales you can get your hands on right now:
