Woolworths will again be participating in Black Friday this year, offering promotions during the period in Fashion, Beauty, Home and Food across stores, online and its app. Woolworths plans to have strict social distancing protocols in stores for employees and customers, including limiting the number of people allowed into the store at one time. Woolies App now has over 1mn customers and one of the features that will be key during the period is the ability to check if your local store has the product you want in stock. Black Friday is particularly popular among e-commerce players and is now the biggest online shopping day in South Africa. The shopping day will fall on 27 November in 2020.
