Where To Shop This Black Friday (2018)

The American super-sale known as Black Friday has started sprouting in South Africa in recent years. Here is where to get the best deals in 2018. 


Note: This list will be updated as we get closer to Black Friday 2018 and more stores release their specials.

Builders Warehouse

For all things DIY, Builders Warehouse has you covered with top in-store deals. From cordless drills to bath tubs and basins, you can start buying up the necessaries for that big renovation you’ve been planning since forever. Be sure to get to your nearest store early to avoid being disappointed.

Black Friday

Via La Moda

Get your fashion accessories sorted come Black Friday 2017. Customers can enjoy up to 60% off on almost all handbags from Via La Moda. You can carry the world on your shoulder – literally – with new cutting-edge handbag designs… at a fraction of the price. We don’t know about you but that’s a rocking deal for sure.

The Gadget Shop

In a quest to offer South Africans the latest and greatest gadgets, the Gadget Shop stocks everything from remote controlled cars to bullet cameras and everything in between. Their Black Friday sale is going to be one of the biggest gadget sales for sure, and to show off we’re giving away five back flipping drones (check the competition details below).

It’s all fun and games until Makro shows up at the Black Friday sale. For everything from corn flakes in bulk to big screen TVs, Makro will have what you need at a super discounted price. Head to any of the Makro marts around to take advantage of the Black Friday sale. If you subscribe to their newsletter you will be informed beforehand what we can expect from this Friday-to-Sunday sale. You can save up to 45% on selected goods.


Our favourite site to buy everything from the latest Wu Tang Clan album to bandsaws would be Takealot.com. This coming Friday the online megastore will be putting its own little twist on Black Friday by dubbing it the Blue Dot Sale. If you spend more than R250 you will receive free standard delivery. There will be a limited supply of some products so it’s a first come, first serve type deal.

Total Sports

For those of us who enjoy staying active (or like to sit on the couch in sportswear), Total Sports is hosting a sale like no other. Head down to your local store or skip the queue by shopping online – that’s what we’ll be doing. From sports tech to soccer boots, Total Sports is your one-stop shop for all things active.

Sunglass Hut

Seeing as we’re headed into a blazing summer you’ll need some fly face gear for when the sun’s out. Thanks to Sunglass Hut jumping on to the Black Friday bandwagon, we can take advantage of the latest designer shades and frames to suit our individual style. From big brands to indie creators, Sunglass Hut is the place to shop this Black Friday.

Have you ever been inside a Checkers on Black Friday? It’s crazy… but so are their prices. You can expect one of SA’s leading super mart to be leading the choir during this year’s sale. You can expect your entire grocery cupboard to be on sale when Black Friday gets to Johannesburg. We can all do with discounted prices on all cuts of bacon, right? Right.

Superbalist Four-Day Sale

From Friday 24 to Monday 27 November, SA’s favourite online retail store will be selling their stock at discounted prices (last year it went up to less 85% on certain items). This is something you most certainly do not want to miss out on. Superbalist offers the latest fashion trends and a slew of essentials for women, men, kids, sports and home. It boasts the largest international brand selection in South Africa as well as a broad range of local brands – more than 500 in total.
