The complete list of the very best Black Friday bargains in NZ, you're welcome

The US holiday of Thanksgiving may not be widely celebrated in New Zealand, but that's not stopping Kiwi retailers getting in on the act.

Black Friday is a well-known tradition in the US, where big box retailers such as Walmart have one off discounts on items prompting a huge rush of customers.

It takes place on the last Friday in November, immediately after Thanksgiving. 

In the US, shoppers can expect a fight for goods, with scenes of huge lines and customers fighting over products common. But in New Zealand things are a bit more sedate.

Here are some of the deals New Zealand retailers are offering today: 

  • Mighty Ape is reducing the price of consoles by up to $140
  • New Balance has 50 percent off all stock storewide
  • The Warehouse has significantly reduced the price on electronics and outdoor pools
