This year’s Black Friday was totally different from all the Black Fridays we have had over the years.
Black Friday 2020 was the quietest yet – there were no extra long queues at shopping centres, no sea of people fighting to get their hands on the biggest deals at malls and definitely no ‘chaos’.
There was still a bit of ‘drama’ though as some consumers have labelled this Black Friday as a ‘scam’.
The hashtag #BlackFriday trended on Twitter and tweeps expressed their disappointment and anger at how Black Friday turned out in Mzansi this year.
Consumers took to Twitter and accused mega retail stores such as Game for allegedly inflating prices. Some even claim that the prices of certain items were cheaper before Black Friday than during Black Friday.
With most stores offering discounts that were below 50%, it did not really feel like Black Friday for most people.
Check out some of the reactions from consumers below.
