This is a brilliant incentive from Pick n Pay, and one we think is going to go down well South African shoppers. The supermarket have announced plans to run a “trial Black Friday” day on 27 September, in order to prepare for the worldwide phenomenon at the end of November.

Pick n Pay bring Black Friday forward

According to an official statement released by Pick n Pay, they are running the promotion to gauge how popular certain items will be ahead of the shopping free-for-all in two months’ time. Black Friday is the name given to the busiest shopping day of the year, made popular in the United States due to its love for consumerism and the date’s proximity to Christmas.

We can confirm that the deals on offer will be available all over South Africa, with special “online-only deals” also getting uploaded on Friday:

“For one day only on 27 September, stores across the country will offer Black Friday-inspired deals on some of the most popular everyday products purchased on Black Friday last year. The Pick n Pay online shop will also have selected online-only deals.”
