JAMMINE'S HANDS (SOUNDBITE) (English) ECONOMIST, DR. AZAR JAMMINE, SAYING; "I think Black Friday has become quite significant in South Africa. Apparently, we're one of the five foremost countries in the world where Black Friday plays a big role, obviously led by the United States followed by Britain and so on. It is quite a significant element in South Africa. What one typically finds nowadays is that you see much higher growth rate in retail sales for November than you used to see but then a lower growth for retail growth sales in December running up to the Christmas season.
