Black Friday brings not only reduced prices, but also a number of security challenges for those looking for favorable customers and retail retail therapy.
This year, Black Friday will be held on November 23rd, and many traders and buyers are ready for big sale.
In the past, the City Public Security Department of the city of Johannesburg had its hands to deal with incidents related to the purchase of black hell, such as groaning, lost children, property damage, assault and even theft and robbery.
Member of the Public Security Committee for the Mayor, Councilor Michael Sun, said: "We want our residents and visitors to enjoy shopping in the city safely."
The following tips will ensure that customers stay safe during the day:
• Take care of your children and do not let them wander themselves
• Take care of your belongings – do not leave your valuables like bags and phones unattended
• Go without cash – use bank cards when making payments
• Be careful when collecting ATM cash and do not expose cash
• Make sure your car, windows and boots are properly locked / closed
• Be patient and kind to your fellow customers and road users
He concluded: "Remember, buying is no more important than you and your family. We also call retail and sales managers to step up security measures and provide emergency assistance to customers."
City Emergency Management Services, the Metropolitan Police Service in Johannesburg and the Disaster Management Center will be at a high level and ready to assist residents where needed.
In the event of a state of emergency, call the Call Center for Public Safety at 011 375 5911.
