BLACK FRIDAY DEALS SOUTH AFRICA 2019
BLACK FRIDAY DEALS SOUTH AFRICA
It’s that time of year again where we aren’t exactly sure why we’re celebrating Black Friday in South Africa but we’re definitely not complaining about all the deals!
WHAT IS BLACK FRIDAY?
Black Friday started in the USA and is celebrated the day after Thanksgiving (Friday). It marks the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season and almost all stores in the USA have huge sales to attract customers. People queue for hours to get their hands on bargains. It’s basically the sale of the year!
WHY BLACK FRIDAY SPECIFICALLY?
The black portion of the name relates to business. In business you traditionally record a loss in red ink and a gain in black ink. Store owners can make huge profits on this day with the numbers of people that flock to see what’s on special.
WHY ARE WE CELEBRATING IT IN SOUTH AFRICA?
It’s a trend that most notable days and international holidays sooner or later become our own, like Halloween for example. The Black Friday trend has really picked up in South Africa over the last few years, mainly because everyone is interested in getting their hands on those Black Friday deals!
