So last Friday I had my first Black Friday experience in Zimbabwe. With prices unrealistically sky rocketing I was quite excited when I saw the Black Friday advert by Edgars Zimbabwe. I really had to check it out so I went to Edgars, First Street.
We got there around 9:30 and there wasn’t really much in terms of sizes, considering that most shoppers were saying they had opened their doors at 9. I struggled to get my size 10, mostly huge sizes were left and some of the stuff really didn’t appeal to my taste. It seemed more like a clearance sale not a Black Friday discount.
The discounts ranged between 75% and 33.3%. I got a nice pair of heels for $53 dollars, their usual price is $80 ( it was quite difficult to get a nice size 6). I also bought two lovely tops at 50% off. I didn’t get as much as I expected but I guess it was better than nothing.
I was also quite annoyed by the till operator. She set aside some wide leg pants I wanted to buy just because they didn’t have a tag on. You’d think she would have looked for a pair with a tag but I guess that courtesy doesn’t exist in Zimbabwe, huh? I ended up leaving them (sigh). How was your Black Friday?
