Takealot.com will be hosting its largest ever one-day sale today (26 November), with free delivery on all orders. They have dubbed the day “takealot Tuesday”.

Declan Hollywood, chief marketing officer at takealot.com, comments: “As the brand that introduced Black Friday to the South African market last year, we decided to do something out of the ordinary this year, and put our own little twist to the Black Friday sale phenomenon.

“We have more than 300 deals secured and in place across all of our categories, and we’ll also be offering fantastic everyday low prices across the entire web site, so whatever users are looking for, they’re sure to find it at a great price.”

Some of the deals that takealot.com are offering today include a R1 300 saving on the Go Pro Hero 2 Action camera, a R3 000 saving on an LG 42-inch television, and a R1 100 saving on a complete box set of the popular US sitcom series Friends.

Commenting on Last year’s Black Friday sales, Hollywood says: “We’re expecting this to be the single largest day of the year, so we’re prepped and ready to handle whatever traffic levels come our way.

“Our message is simple: We’ve lined up some incredible deals, we have everyday low prices across the website, and we’re offering free delivery, so there will never be a better day to get your Christmas shopping delivered right to your door at such low prices.”
