As you will be aware we recently temporarily closed our Diepkloof store due to health and safety concerns following a video that went viral. We were initially going to do a thorough deep clean but, in conjunction with our franchisee, elected to rather bring forward a scheduled revamp of the store. This would not only address the health and safety issues but also substantially improve the customer experience, bringing it on par with the best stores in our group.
Our teams worked tirelessly to ensure that this was completed as soon as possible and we are excited to announce that, having passed an inspection with the Environmental and Health Services Department for the City of Joburg, our store will reopen the Thursday, 31 January 2019.
This coincides with our annual Summer Carnival and will allow our customers to enjoy all the fantastic offers available.
We also wish to thank the City of Joburg and its officials for working with us to ensure that we can open and be compliant in every way. We are also pleased to note that work has been done to clean up the informal dumping in the perimeter of Diepkloof Square and hope that this work will continue in the future.
