While the world over Friday the 29th of November is the biggest day for shopping the situation is not the same in Zimbabwe. The economic situation in Zimbabwe has forced almost an entire population into poverty with few barely affording two meals a day. The whole country is on a real Black Friday with 20 hour loadshedding and worthless local currency.
Mean while is South Africa retail online giant Takealot has been accused of fake Black Friday. The online giant advertised huge discounts of up to 40% but all turned to be scams as prices actually went up instead of going down. The same is being said of Grocery giant Pick n Pay, prices did not go down as was expected by pressed South African consumers.
Black Friday first started in the USA and now gradually spreading across the whole world.
