Black Friday in South Africa has generally been met with mixed reception. This largely due to South African retailers not fully grasping the concept or simply not being generous enough.
Understanding Black Friday
It’s common for retailers to offer special promotions and open their doors during the pre-dawn hours on Black Friday to attract customers. To keep up with the competition, some retailers have gone so far as to keep their operations going on the Thanksgiving holiday.
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!
Can Black Friday deals be returned?
Legally you have the same rights to refund faulty items bought on sale as you do when they are bought full price. If the item is not faulty – for instance, if you decide you simply didn’t like the product – then you need to check with the retailer. You will need a proof of purchase if you want to return an item.
When is Black Friday 2019 and when does it end?
Black Friday falls on 29th November this year. The event began as a US tradition, and therefore always falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving, which is always the last Thursday in November. Do not hesitate to visit amonet for more Black Friday deals.
