One of the biggest events in the retail calendar year is here and Kiwis all over New Zealand are getting ready to hunt down some great deals in the lead up to the holidays.
Black Friday has its origins in the United States. It’s gained momentum here in recent years and has fast become the new start date for Christmas shopping. Falling on the 27th November, just under a month out from Christmas Day, its popularity has grown as more retailers jumped on board. Today, Black Friday sales are now significantly bigger than those on Boxing Day.
2020 is the eighth consecutive year The Warehouse Group has run Black Friday deals across its brand portfolio as customers look to secure great buys in the lead up to Christmas and the summer holidays.
“This year we’ve stepped up our offers even further with great deals across The Warehouse, Warehouse Stationery, Noel Leeming, Torpedo7 in stores and online, as well as at TheMarket.com” says Jonathan Waecker, Chief Customer Officer at The Warehouse Group.
Customers can take advantage of Black Friday’s amazing deals across popular categories like toys, tech, outdoor and appliances. Online marketplace, TheMarket.com will also be offering deals of up to 50% on selected items across more than 300 brands, together with an additional 10% off sitewide. Customers choosing to pay with Zip can be in to win one of seven Playstation5 consoles.
“Customers use Black Friday as an opportunity to get a jump start on their Christmas shopping. We’ve worked hard to make sure sufficient stock levels are maintained through the busiest retail period leading into Christmas,” says Mr Waecker.

We are confident with product availability. We have more stock coming, and will have stock arriving daily, right up until Christmas,” he said.
