Our retail brands offer clothing, jewellery, cellphones, accessories, cosmetics, sporting and outdoor apparel and equipment, and homeware and furniture from value to upper market segments. 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. Currently, credit is offered to our customers in South Africa as well as in Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland/Eswatini. In addition to retail turnover, revenue is also generated from interest received on customers’ store cards and through various customer value-added products, available to our TFG Africa customers.

Our product offering is sourced both locally and offshore, with strong in-house design teams across all business segments.
