    BEITBRIDGE – Thousands of Zimbabweans are expected to flood South African shops on Friday (tomorrow) November 23, 2018 to take advantage of prices of commodities that will be slashed by as much as 70%.
    The Black Friday commemorations frenzy in the neighbouring country seems to have torched a fever in Zimbabwe with a lot of social groups including Whatsaap discussing plans for the day.
    The November 23 2018 day is even more important for Zimbabweans this year considering that there is a critical shortage of commodities in the country’s supermarkets in and for those that are there, prices have shot up by 200%.
    Many Zimbabweans want to take advantage of the day to stock for Christmas and some of the commodities that they are targeting are beverages and in particular beer.
    Black Friday is a thanksgiving day celebrated in a number of countries including the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Netherlands, Sweden and Mexico. Black Friday is held once a year in November and in South Africa the retail sector gives back to the community by slashing prices of commodities.
    In other countries, Black Friday is used as a fore-runner to Christmas shopping.
    According to adverts on websites 46 large South African shops have confirmed that they would slash prices on Black Friday and they include Asus, Bt Games, Builders, Cellucity, Checkers, Clicks, Digicape, Edgars, Esquire, Exclusive Books, Game, Hisense, Incredible Connection, Makro, Mr Price, MTN, Pick ‘n’ Pay, Shoprite, Surge, Telkom, Vodacom etc.
    Some South African shops are going to extend Black Friday specials for a week, according to adverts on website.
    A Zimbabwean who is staying in Capetown, Patience Sibanda said the promotion which is held annually in November was last year held on November 24.
    She said most shops run the promotion from Monday to Friday and some only offer from Friday to Sunday but the main day is Friday.
