Black Friday: What's Black Friday And Do We Have It In Zimbabwe?

Just so you know today, Friday 26 November 2021, is Black Friday. 

Black Friday 2021: A colloquial term for the Friday following Thanksgiving, Black Friday will be observed on November 26 this year. On this day, many offline and online stores offer their products at high discounts to customers. Often, stores open very early, sometimes as early as midnight or even on Thanksgiving to start their Black Friday sale.

Nakiso Borehole Drilling Black Friday Promotion: 

Nakiso Borehole Drilling is running an extensive Black Friday Week on the last week of the month of November 2021. Nakiso Borehole Drilling has been running a Black Friday Month instead of restricting the promotion to the actual one day - Friday 26 November 2021.

This arrangement will involve the Black Friday Week running from Monday 22 November 2021 to Friday 26 November 2021 the month of November rather than concentrating all the Black Friday Deals into just one day, said Mavis Magwisa, the Sales Associate for Nakiso Borehole Drilling.

“We saw from our 2019 and 2020 Black Friday Promotion that there was a high concentration of people who needed water solutions from us coming to take advantage of the promotion. This posed a challenge to us as we experience a lot of traffic on the 2019 Black Friday,” said Iyvonne Mutindindi, the Nakiso Borehole Drilling Operations Associate.

"Therefore, we as Nakiso Borehole Drilling have taken the decision to reimagine the way we do Black Friday in 2021."

"In an effort to create a more consumer-friendly Black Friday experience while adhering to all Covid-19 and social distancing protocols, Nakiso Borehole Drilling has taken the decision to extend the duration of our Black Friday promotion to one month."

A Brief History of Black Friday:

Americans and other countries celebrate a holiday called Thanksgiving which always falls on the fourth Thursday of November each year rather than on a given specific calendar day. 

This is an important holiday during which people travel to meet relatives usually as an extended family.

As already said the holiday falls on a Thursday it would make little sense for people to return to work the following day-Friday. While not officially recognised the Friday after Thanksgiving became a de-facto holiday characterised by a large number of people doing their shopping.

Shops began to take advantage of this by offering inducements to entice people to buy and spend. Eventually, it evolved into a day when you could do early Christmas shopping.

No, the term Black Friday did not begin as a day when white Americans offered each other deals on black-negro slaves! 
Black Friday: What's Black Friday And Do We Have It In Zimbabwe?
Black Friday: What's Black Friday And Do We Have It In Zimbabwe?
That much we know. However, the origins of the name Black Friday are not clear. Some say it was the police of certain American states that started calling it a Black Friday as it was a day when there was a lot of traffic resulting in lots of crime, accidents and deaths.

As Black Friday became popular shops came up with their own spin on how the term Black Friday came to be. According to them, it’s a day that allowed shops to make a profit. Making a loss is called being in red, remember how all marks below 50% were reported using a red pen in your High School report book? 

Turning a profit is called being in black.

Black Friday comes to Africa and Zimbabwe:

While discounts were popular in Zimbabwe towards Christmas, with the recent economic meltdowns it has actually become customary for our predatory retailers to hike prices as we get towards Christmas. 

However, the meltdown has also seen a lot of Zimbabweans leave the country and go to other countries where they have had occasion to experience other cultures one of which is Black Friday.

The tech-savvy Zimbabwean community has also taken advantage of a number of years now. Each year the number of people who take advantage of these sales online continues to grow using cards such as the FBC MasterCard and Steward Visa to shop on Aliexpress, Amazon, Alibaba and Gearbest.
