A hoax promotional flyer has been circulating on social media, suggesting that Shoprite South Africa would be be giving major #BlackFriday giveaways.
But the retailer has confirmed that it would not be participating in today's shopping extravaganza in the country.
They are however running their regular weekly specials.
