=== Last Year's Black Friday Offers to give you an idea on what to expect  ===

Last Updated: 23 November 2016

It is that time of the year and shopping malls and major retail stores are preparing for arguably the biggest and busiest retail day of the year – Black Friday.

The term “Black Friday” originated in the United States from the old Philadelphia Police Department’s traffic squad. The officers used the term to describe the worst traffic jams which occurred annually in Center City on the Friday after thanksgiving. On that day Santa Claus took his chair into shopping malls where every little rascal would swamp the stores ready to tell him of their good deeds.

In South Africa, Black Friday means saving money big time. On Friday participating retailers offering discounts of up to 80% on specified items. The pre-Christmas sales bonanza has seen South African retailers record net sales increase above 200% over the past three years.

Last year Black Friday had one of the leading super markets drive shoppers with up specials of upto to 50%.
This year will bring you the best, weird and wonderful Black Friday specials on the day.
