TFG is one of the foremost independent chain-store groups in South Africa and has a diverse portfolio of 29 leading fashion retail brands offering clothing, jewellery, cellphones, accessories, cosmetics, sporting apparel and equipment, and homeware and furniture from value to upper market segments.
TFG was established in 1924 and listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in 1941. TFG is included in the JSE Top 40, an index of the 40 largest companies listed on the JSE.
The majority of our turnover is in the form of cash sales to customers, with the balance being from our own in-house credit offering. Credit is offered to customers in South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Eswatini. Revenue is also generated from interest received on customers’ store cards and through value-added services available to our TFG Africa customers.
South Africa and Namibia are TFG Africa’s most significant markets, with the United Kingdom, including Ireland, being the most significant market for TFG London. TFG Australia is focused on Australia and New Zealand.
We source our product offering locally and offshore, with strong in-house design teams across all business segments. TFG Africa’s manufacturing capabilities coordinate production through our own factories and various independent cut, make and trim (CMT) factories. This provides significant quick response capability and is a key differentiator for the Group.
