These 11 major retailers are running Black Friday deals in 2017

| Economic factors

Many of South Africa’s largest physical retailers have committed to Black Friday, which will hit South Africa on 24 November 2017.

Due to its huge success for US retailers, Black Friday has been adopted in South Africa over the past several years, with more companies taking part each year.

While initially a big sale focused mainly on online retail in South Africa, the craze seeped into brick and mortar stores in 2016 including the biggest retailers like Makro, Pick n Pay, and Checkers.

The shopping phenomenon will take place on November 24, 2017, followed by Cyber Monday on November 27, 2017, where a host of leading online retailers drop their prices.

South African retailers are already advertising major discounts in preparation for the big day on the shopping calendar, with many expected to follow suit in the coming weeks.

Shopping malls across the country are also preparing for the day, with the likes of Menlyn Mall in Pretoria, and Irene Village putting out notices and billboards advertising the Black Friday craze that will be descending on the day.

Other malls that are readying for Black Friday 2017 include Canal Walk (Cape Town); Mall@Reds (Centurion); The Glen (Joburg South); Clearwater Mall (West Rand); La Lucia Mall (Durban).

These are 10 of the country’s largest retailers who have committed to Black Friday 2017 – from groceries, to toys, homeware and building supplies, the promise of great deals awaits those who venture out of their homes and into the shops.

While the deals themselves are under wraps, these retailers have confirmed their participation.
