Even in this struggling economy with global supply chain constraints, retailers are expecting strong sales from Black Friday specials and this has extended far beyond electronics, gifts and clothing.

Grocery and liquor retailers are also banking on high sales on fresh and non-perishable products, as families prep for the festive season.

Everything from fruit to fermented barley is being discounted to offer consumers some budgetary respite as we enter the season of seven-coloured dinner plates.

Food grocers will be having incredible combo deals catering for whatever your tastes, be it stir-fry, potjie, salad or household essentials like spuds, onions, carrots and cabbage.

Fresh seasonal fruit will keep you healthy and your taste buds tickled, with specials on proudly Nambian dates, watermelons, blueberries, grapes, melons and so much more.

Many retailers are also promoting their ranges of snacks, chips and soft drinks, some of which have amazing combo deals, so do make a point of popping into your nearest shop to get stocked up.

Don’t make a mis-steak

You can even get your hands on some premium steak and mince, before picking up the obligatory pork knuckles, smoked ribs, gammon, A-grade beef, lamb and pickled beef tongue if you’re feeling flush.

Here’s to beer

While we can expect many specials on beers, ciders, wine and hard tack over the next few weeks, what would a Black Friday be without a relaxing sundowner after a hard day’s shopping? As everyone knows, major retailers are vying give you more bang for your buck.

Pop by their outlets to experience crazy deals on a wide variety of tipples, soft drinks and bar accessories. This will have you ready for fun yet responsible festivities with your loved ones, especially if you’re going to take advantage of all fantastic Black Friday deals tour operators and establishments will be running today.

Happy Black Friday, safe shopping!
