What to expect at Kmart’s Black Friday sale

What to expect at Kmart’s Black Friday sale

Kmart is bringing back Black Friday for the second year running - and there’s one item in particular that shoppers are dying to get their hands on.

The discount department store will be launching Bright Friday - its version of Black Friday - from this Friday, with a select range of heavily discounted or limited edition items hitting shelves.

Kmart is bringing back its extremely popular egg-shaped chair, with similar versions of the chair selling out almost instantly in the past.

This year’s Bright Friday $199 version features cream cushions and rattan in a chic brown finish, making it perfect for both outdoor and indoor living spaces.

Posts about the chair have started to pop up in different Kmart Facebook groups, with shoppers saying their “backyard needs this”.

“Need this in my life,” one person commented, while another person said they would be getting it as a “Xmas present to myself”.

But others have warned that the chair will most likely sell out “super fast” like other Kmart Bright Friday deals.

Others were excited about Kmart’s other Bright Friday deals, which include a SodaKING maker slashed from $69.95 to $27, a Hollywood light mirror for $69, and a $49 sewing machine.

“This could be dangerous,” one person wrote on Facebook, while another joked: “I think I just wet my pants of excitement, I can’t wait!!!!!!”

But some said they were “not even gonna try (to) go” claiming their local Kmart probably wouldn’t have stock.

Kmart is urging customers to try shopping online with shoppers also being able to book a shopping slot during busy times to avoid queuing.

Stores in NSW and Victoria will have extended trading hours, as well as mobile check-outs to help customers pay for their items faster.

Kmart’s general merchandise general manager Callum Smith said that when it comes to Bright Friday, “once they are gone, they’re gone”.

“Black Friday was incredibly popular and well received by our loyal customers last year. As a team, we had some learnings from the event and understanding of the types of products our customers love. We can’t wait for our customers to see what’s on offer this year,” he said.

“Some of last year’s much-loved favourites have returned with a new twist as well as completely new lines never seen before.”
