Black Friday is here and what better time for it to take place than on payday. Since the early hours of Friday morning, frantic shoppers chasing specials have been camping outside stores.

Online website takealot.com crashed on Friday morning and was temporarily down because of the demand of Black Friday shoppers.

Black Friday initially started in the U.S. on the day after Thanksgiving, and the frenzy has now spread throughout the world.
