Woolworths does Black Friday with a difference
Woolworths - Nov 21st 2018, 09:30
Black Friday has developed a reputation for frantic shopping frenzies and incredible deals. This year, in addition to offering incredible deals of up to 50% off, Woolworths has decided to do Black Friday with a difference.
By encouraging people to give while they save, Woolies is giving South Africans a way to help solve hunger in SA by providing 2.5 million meals to those who need it most this Christmas
In this, their first year of participating in Black Friday, Woolworths is the first major retailer in South Africa to activate a charitable give back on all their transactions and selected products. To participate in Woolworths Give Back Friday, Customers need to simply swipe their linked Woolworths or MySchool MyVillage MyPlanet card on any Give Back Friday transactions and Woolies will donate a percentage to their food security initiative through FoodForward SA. And if customers spend and swipe on Friday 23rd, Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th November, Woolworths will give back DOUBLE.
But Woolworths Black Friday is not only about giving. It is also about getting. With up to 50% off selected Fashion, Beauty and Home, Woolies opted for a week of promotions as opposed to only one day, starting on Monday 19th November and ending on “Cyber Monday” the 26th. Woolworths is also offering free delivery for online purchases of R475 or more.
Black Friday will culminate on the 23rd November with in-store experiences across Woolworths stores nationwide. Customers will be treated with Woolies special Black Friday experiences such as a complementary Black Friday themed juice shot and sweet treats, and will be spoilt in the Woolworths beauty hall with mini makeovers and consultations.
