CAPE TOWN – Patience is key to surviving Black Friday. That's the advice from one Cape Town shopper, who along with hundreds of others, swamped a supermarket at N1 City.

Many had been queuing for hours before doors opened early this morning.

Robyn-Lee Daniels says this is her first time visiting the shops on a Black Friday.

“As my first time I’d say it was a nice experience but next time, no. there won’t be the next time, I think for other people not for me. I’d say I’m very impatient hence I’m saying there won’t be next time.”

At the Checkers Hyper in Sandton City has decided not to sell Coca-Cola this Black Friday but there are other cold drinks on sale.

Shoppers are strolling around to get their items in an orderly fashion this year.

Last year, there was a mad rush and lots of pushing and pulling.

However, security is visible today and guards are only allowing 10 people in the store every 5 seconds.
