With so much to choose from, you never know what you might find!
What’s the key to our success so far? We are committed to the three Ps:
People – As our valued customers, we appreciate and value your feedback, and we are constantly striving to exceed your shopping experience. Our staff are passionate about their jobs and their company, and about serving you. They are carefully selected, well trained and frequently rewarded for their achievements, and are committed to going the extra mile. (See our Careers section for more information.)
Products – Our product range is changing all the time, thanks to constant research and a flexible buying strategy. Our team of specialists travel the world to find the most unique and interesting products at the best possible prices, bringing them back to Southern Africa to broaden your choice. More than 5 000 product lines flow through our stores across our extensive range so that you really ‘never know what you might find.’
Presentation – Our stores are colourful with a light-hearted atmosphere, balancing excitement with a customer-friendly layout. We constantly assess and update our stores’ look and feel to keep them in line with the latest international retail trends.
And it’s working…
Our commitment to the three Ps, backed up by that all-important ‘fourth P’ – Passion – has helped us open 215 stores over the last 15 years.
