You know the drill. Savings, hordes of people and the satisfaction that you finally got your hands on that thing you’ve had your eye on this entire year! Black Friday is the day that shoppers both love and dread. Does the thrill of bagging a deal outshine the stress of waiting in line, not knowing if you’ll be able to get what you want? We’ve had a chat with a couple Woodlands shoppers to hear what they had to say about Black Friday.
“I’m all for Black Friday! In the past I’ve only ever shopped Black Friday online because I couldn’t get off work, but this year I made sure I planned to take the day off. Woodlands will definitely be my shopping destination of choice. Yes, shopping online is convenient, but you never know in what condition the product is going to turn up in. This year I look forward to following the promotions as they get posted on the [Woodlands] Facebook page and planning my route through the mall from there. You will definitely be seeing me this year! Black Friday, here I come!”
– Luzaan Coetzee
“I get there early, get what I want and get out. It’s when you hang around for too long that your eyes start to wander, and you quickly lose control!”
“There are a few things I have my heart set on this year – I hope it will be on sale! My husband and I normally make use of Black Friday to shop Christmas prezzies for the kids which really helps financially. We just wish more retailers would participate so we can get all the shopping done in one go!”
– Christa Kloppers
“We always shop at Woodlands. Black Friday is a breeze and a highlight of our year. We normally scope out the sales and go in with a game plan. Remember to pack some snacks.”
– Hennie Burger
“I had a wonderful experience shopping Black Friday deals last year. I had just moved into my new house and was in desperate need of home décor and kitchen utensils. I was able to get everything I needed. Can’t wait to see what’s discounted this year!”
– Elsabé Potgieter
“I try and keep out of the shops that day. Not a big fan of the crowds but I will view the deals online. If there’s anything I want I will just get my husband to pick it up during lunch [chuckles].”
– Marguerite Nel
“I had really set my heart on these nice sparkly shoes but when I got to the shop it was already sold out! Luckily the shop attendant was extremely polite and helpful, and managed to find the last pair of sandals in my size! Woodlands will be my mall of choice this Black Friday! You won’t get any better deals and service anywhere else.”
– Precious Mdu
