Yip, we'll be covering a bit of the Black Friday silliness this year.
Not that I have much hope of a truly irresistible deal - locally, last year was rather disappointing to be honest.
Music Experience - Only one to have a list up already - though I reckon this is a just a response to the November deals that other retailer's already have running. If you are looking for a Fender, PRS, Taylor or Ibby - have a look - though not much seems overly cheap. A Baby Taylor is 14% off (R5995), a Fender Player Series (MIM) is R9995 and a Ibby Artist (AR420) is R9995, at 40% off that does seem like a sale price
Bothners - have a Black Friday promotion - 22-24 November. No deals up yet, but think about a store visit, it's guitar frenzy this November already - so they might just do something special for Black Friday.
Marshall Music have a "Blck Frdy" flyer on the home page, but aside from "up to 50% off" between 22nd-25th November, there are no details as yet.
Raru - No news from Raru on their Black Friday deals either.
Takealot will have their annual blue dot sale up from 00:01 on the 23rd November. No idea what's gonna be interesting or worthwhile yet. I'll have thje popcorn ready though...let's see if they can stay online during the day
Mars Music - No news at all from Mars/MiTech - sure they'll do something?
TOMS - Just had their annual sale, so I dunno if they'll do anything fro Black Friday - doesn't look like it?
AudioMart mention a Black Friday deal, but it just looks like they rebranded their promotions.
Gear junkie - Sorry no insider knowledge...yet! There might be a silly special or two on stock items.
Ronnie's Allbang and Stumit - No info...yet. He'll probably have a offer or two I rekcon.
