Shoppers in the hall way of one of Johannesburg's most popular malls.

JOHANNESBURG – Consumers are expected to crowd shopping centres countrywide, as the Black Friday craze hits stores.

Adopted from the American Black Friday, which takes place after Thanksgiving, the day sees retailers slashing prices. 

Black Friday has grown into a massive global shopping event that leads to chaos in stores across the US, Canada and the UK, with shoppers even camping outside retailers to get their hands on the bargains. 

Here, in South Africa, Black Friday was first introduced by Checkers but this year, more than a dozen retailers will be participating.
