February was a month of love for some, for kalahari.net on the other hand, it was a month of dramatic discounts and change. South Africa’s pioneering online retailer launched its Big Mama sale in celebration of its new-look website. It meant great products at giveaway prices, such as award-winning DVDs for under R30, up to 80% off books and the first eReader in South Africa for under R700.
Here is an update of February’s bestsellers in the Book, Electronics, Music, DVD and Games category as well as what kalahari.net predict the best sellers for March to be.
