Surviving Black Friday

Tips & Tricks

Black Friday, one of the biggest retail days of the year, is on 29 November this year! Get ready for amazing deals and promotions from many participating stores in centre.

Shop festive season gifting and decor or just stock up your household stock pile for next year. 


But, in order to keep your sanity and your wallet intact, there are a few Black Friday tips and rules we'd like to share with you!

Compile your shopping list

Not all stores will be taking part in the Black Friday saga. Keep an eye on the Black Friday Participating Stores event page to plan your shopping route and find out about their deals beforehand. Not many release their Black Friday secrets, but visit their stores or stalk their websites to get in on their promotions.


Keep hydrated

Carry around a bottle of water or an energy drink when you take off on your Black Friday mission. Keep an eye out for the Red Bull promoters in centre, handing out energy drinks!


Bring along a shopping buddy

Never shop Black Friday alone! Team work makes the dream work. But, try to leave the kids at home – away from the crazy rush. It is also of utmost importance that you bring someone along that keeps up your pace - you would hate to bring along a lagging friend that slows you down!


Check return policies

Purchasing items amidst the madness can be quite chaotic, but be sure to check out the return policies for all the items bought. You might want to return a few things once the excitement of the deals actually settle in.


Opt for using debit or credit cards

We would hate for you to misplace your purse or wallet with a huge sum of cash in it! Opt for bringing along no cash and swiping instead.


Know where to park

We offer free ope-air parking at entrances one , two, three and four! For guaranteed convenience you can park undercover, entering at MediClinic or Builders Warehouse. Look for the undercover parking sign.

Entrance 1 - Pick 'n Pay Entrance 4 - Checkers Entrance 7 - @Home
Entrance 2 - Woolworths Entrance 5 - Game Entrance 8 - Mr Suite Hire
Entrance 3 - Mugg & Bean Entrance 6 - Cardies / Food Court Entrance 9 - Mezzanine Level (down the lift: Mr Price)


Wear the proper shoes

Wouldn't it just be terrible if you are on top of your Black Friday game but 1 hour into it, your feet hurt because you're wearing the incorrect footwear. We suggest you lace up your most comfortable pair of sneakers to get the most out of your mission!


Know your way around Capegate

Not sure where the stores are situated in centre? We've got you covered! Visit the information desk, located on the upper level in the Edgars court and ask them for a mall map. This way you can plan your route and your shopping mission.
