Black Friday is becoming increasingly popular in South Africa and it is a day where retailers offer huge savings on various goods from tech to food and more. This year, Black Friday will fall on November 29th, but some retailers like Pick N Pay are kicking things off early.
Pick n Pay has launched exclusive teaser deals for Gauteng and Western Cape online customers in the lead up to Black Friday.
These ‘Black November’ deals will go live on the Pick N Pays website every Monday at 7am and will be valid for seven days or whilst stocks last.
Pick n Pay said that the deals will offer up to 50% off across various categories like appliances, groceries, wine, liquor, electronics, baby essentials and household items.
John Bradshaw, retail executive for marketing at Pick N Pay said that a number of their customers signed up for the Black Friday emailer before hand, so that they would get notified immediately. Minutes before the deals went live, customers logged into the site. He also said that customers enjoyed being able to shop for different items throughout the month and not just on one day.
Pick N Pay has also implemented extra measures this year to serve as many customers as possible and quickly. They have also stepped up their online delivery capacity to avoid delays.
Also, from Saturday, the Black November Saver Delivery slots will be available. This is a discounted delivery rate and orders are delivered during the day on the date selected by the customer.
The Pick N Pay Black November online deals run each week from the 4thto 25thNovember 2019 and are exclusive to online customers in Gauteng and Western Cape in areas that are covered by the Pick N Pay’s online delivery network.
