Black Friday gets even bigger at The Warehouse

The Warehouse has announced its Black Friday bargains for 2019 – as CEO Pejman Okhovat says the event grows in popularity every year.

“We’ve been running Black Friday for seven years now and every year it gets bigger.”

“The timing of Black Friday is ideal for getting a head start on Christmas shopping and we’re expecting shoppers to take advantage of some our amazing deals.”

The Warehouse’s Black Friday promotion launches online just before midnight on Wednesday 27 November and runs in stores from Thursday 28 November until Sunday 1 December.

Okhovat says The Warehouse is looking forward to sharing the deals with customers.

“Gamers will love the PS4 500GB console for $299, a saving of $170.”

“We also have a range of TVs on special, including the Veon 58” 4K Ultra HD TV for $499, usually $799.”

With the most toys under one roof, The Warehouse is also the perfect destination for kids’ Christmas presents.

“This year one of our biggest toy deals is the LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Great Hall for just $99, a saving of $76.”

There is also up to 60% off Daewoo Whiteware, 40% off Christmas trees and 30% off Christmas decorations.

But the deals don’t stop there – Black Friday is quickly followed by Cyber Monday on Monday 2 December, with more online-only deals to be released on The Warehouse website on Monday.

Warehouse Stationery reveals

Pejman Okhovat says Black Friday could also come in handy for topping up office supplies or getting a head start on Back to School shopping.

This year Warehouse Stationery is offering 40% off Workspace desks, chairs, bookcases and cubbies, and 25% off Notebooks and desktop computers. The HP Chromebook 11.6” will be $319, a saving of $210.

Warehouse Stationery Black Friday deals will be available online from 6pm on Wednesday 27 November and in store from Thursday 28 November until Sunday 1 December.
