Our strategic approach to securing new trading opportunities comprises an effective combination of market research, property development and long-term leasing and management expertise.
Before committing to a new property, we use extensive demographic projections to track trends and shifts in consumer patterns. The development and re-development of properties are supervised in-house through every stage, from planning and design, right through to construction and leasing.
A team of in-house designers and draughtsmen is responsible for producing internal store layouts for all brands that stay abreast of international store design trends and that are individually tailored to meet site-specific requirements and criteria relevant to each trading opportunity and market. This ensures all stores are optimised for effective stock management and the use of trading space.
The division is also responsible for the management and administration of the Group’s existing lease and property portfolio. This includes the handling of all lease negotiations, whether with external landlords or the subletting of shops.
We are always exploring new opportunities to expand our footprint in South Africa and beyond. Property owners who partner with the Group profit from long-term leases with optimal returns on their investment.
Should you require leasing opportunities, have vacant land for sale or retail premises to let, we’d like to partner with you.
