On Black Friday, most shops opened very early to allow shoppers to start helping themselves to the deals.
EWN reporter Shamiela Fisher reported that Checkers in Goodwood had long queues before 6 am. According to the manager, the staff had to be collected as early as 2 am to ensure that everything is in order by the time shoppers arrive.
EWN reporter Refilwe Pitjeng was monitoring Mall of Africa, Sandton and Woodmead in Gauteng.
She says toilet paper was the most popular item and Mall of Africa was out of stock.
