“We’ve seen the exact shoes we want and the size. We just need to pay,” said Raymond Thobela, from Khayelitsha, as he waited in line with his wife, Amanda, outside the Superga outlet in Canal Walk.
It was an anxious wait as the store was allowing only 10 customers in at a time for its Black Friday specials.
Anathi Rubela waited from 4am to get his hands on an iPhone X at Cavendish Square in Cape Town.
Shoe shopper Alton John, from Hanover Park, got his special deal from Timberland in Canal Walk, scoring a pair of boots he plans to wear tonight.
Rafiek Laishai, from Bonteheuvel, said he was shopping for his grandmother, who collects shoes. “Every Black Friday, my grandma sends me to buy stuff,” he said, heading home with this year’s pair.
Oscar Nyamayaro told TimesLive at Johannesburg’s Mall of Africa that he was spoiling his wife and children today.
“I’m here to buy nice things for my family and my kids. A few toys and some gadgets,” he said.
Nyamayaro and his wife, both dressed in red, carried big smirks ahead of the Black Friday deals at Mall of Africa.
“You know, man, I love Black Friday. I’m loving it big time. There are a lot of nice prices here.”
