The retail giant came under fire after a TRESemmé advert on the company's website depicted black people's hair as "dry and dull", while white people's hair was depicted as "normal”.

This led to the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) protesting outside the retailer's stores across the country, demanding outlets be shut down until Friday.

In a statement, the Clicks Group said it had decided to close their stores on Wednesday to further engage with staff members.

However, a Clicks store inside a hospital in Uitenhage in the Eastern Cape was not closed, as it serviced the hospital and patients. 

This led to EFF members entering the Clicks pharmacy threatening to “burn down the hospital” unless they close the pharmacy.
