EWN reporters give an update about what's been happening in the major cities across the country this #BlackFriday.

The biggest shopping day in the country is finally here.

Most shops opened very early to allow shoppers to start helping themselves to the deals.

EWN reporter Shamiela Fisher says Checkers in Goodwood had long queues before 6 am. She says according to the manager, the staff had to be collected as early as 2 am to ensure that everything is in order by the time shoppers arrive.

I spoke to one of the shoppers who travelled from Bishop Lavis to N1 City Checkers to do their grocery shopping. She says she is too impatient to be dealing with a busy store like this one and she will probably never do this again.

EWN reporter Refilwe Pitjeng is monitoring Mall of Africa, Sandton and Woodmead in Gauteng.

She says toilet paper is the most popular item and Mall of Africa is currently out of stock.

There's a long queue at the moment in Woodmead all the way to the Nike factory store.

I think Checkers managed it very well this year because there was extra security outside just before they open. They were allowing only ten people in the store every 5 seconds to avoid pushing and shoving.
