Makro Black Friday deals 2022 will be available to South Africans over a period of five days, the Massmart-owned retailer announced this week.
The promotion, dubbed “Black5Day,” ends the month-long specials Makro had in 2020 and 2021 during the pandemic. The previous long period enabled the retailer to control crowds of shoppers in line with restrictions at the time.
Plans for Makro Black Friday deals 2022
Makro said its 2022 Black Friday deals will run from Wednesday, 23 November to Sunday, 27 November. They will be available online and on the recently launched Makro mobile app, which is available on the App Store (for Apple devices) and Google Play (for Android devices).
The retailer said shoppers should expect “incredibly low” prices across a range of products such as cellphones, gaming devices, smart TVs, home appliances and gym equipment.
Shoppers should also be alert for secret coupons that will be available at checkout to get additional discounts.
Regarding deliveries for online orders, Massmart said it will stick to its 2 to 5-day delivery target across all its brands, including Makro, during Black Friday and the festive season. Usually, retailers increase their delivery times during these periods because of the increased demand.
The group said it has made several improvements to tackle delivery delays experienced in previous years. These include appointing regional ecommerce managers, shipping orders directly from their distribution centres and integrating Wumdrop’s same-day delivery services.
“The impact of these improvements is perhaps best seen at Makro, where over 75 percent of all deliveries are made within 48 hours,” the group added.
