What SA retailers need to know about Black Friday

Cyber Monday

It will continue to offer "lightning" deals every day until Black Friday. This time, it plans to take it a step further.

With Black Friday ads leaking each day, here is a few things of what you can anticipate from the online retail firm during the Black Friday 2017 and what are the deals that are already available now. Businesses are beginning to reveal their Black Friday hours and discounts, giving us a sense of the trends that will define this holiday shopping season. Asda, owned by America's biggest retailer Walmart, followed suit in 2013. The Star Tribune reports that CBL Properties will close its 75 shopping centers around the country on Thanksgiving, though stores, theaters and restaurants with exterior mall entrances will be given the option to open. Shoppers who regularly shop at Amazon should get a Prime because it gives you a free two-day free shipping and often 30-minute early access to Amazon Black Friday Deals.

Black Friday sales between 2015 and 2016 more than tripled, and the same is expected for this year if not more - but some strategy and consideration is definitely necessary from marketers to maximise the opportunity, he said.

Black Friday is a long day, with many retailers opening up at 5 am or even earlier to hordes of people waiting anxiously outside the windows.

According to Gross, there is no clear-cut answer to whether Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are for you as a retailer or not.
