Black Friday Shopping in South Africa

It's that time of the year again folks! Black Friday is coming to you on the 23rd of November 2018. While Black Friday is only one day, most of the specials will run from about the 16th of November until about the 25th of November. 

It's quite amazing how Black Friday has caught on in South Africa. Two years ago most people I spoke to didn't even know what "Black Friday" was. For those who are still unaware, Black Friday is the first Friday after the american Thanksgiving holiday and is a day where all retailers in the country run the most insane specials they are able to put together. It's a fantastic time to save money! And now you can do it in South Africa!
