2016 Black Friday was marked by mayhem across the world as shoppers fought each other and tussling over bargains inside supermarkets.

Black Friday is annual event where shoppers get crazy discounts for all products being sold by retailers. It has been regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season.

Black Friday may not have picked up in Kenya to witness crazy shopping frenzies but the story is completely different in other parts of the world where shoppers eagerly wait for November 25 to get those crazy deals.

2016 Black Friday saw two people lose their lives in the US; one person died after a shooting in a parking lot in South Jersey while another one got killed during a road rage incident in Reno, Nevada over a parking spot in a Walmart (American multinational retail corporation that operates a chain of hypermarkets.)

Death aside, shoppers across the world rushed to retail shops and supermarkets to buy goods at incredible discounts.

Long queues outside supermarkets in US, UK, Australia, Brazil, Greece, South Africa etc were witnessed from as early as 1am even before supermarkets opened.

Television sets seems to be the product that was mostly purchased by shoppers as photos from across the world show shoppers carrying flat screens in trolleys.
