Checkers’ new UNIQ clothing brand opened its first store in the Eastern Cape, at Walmer Park Shopping Centre in Gqeberha.

UNIQ clothing offers premium quality clothing for the whole family, with a focus on simplicity, comfort, superior fabrics and value.

The new summer collection is a fresh take on resort-style wear with a focus on luxurious fabrics such as 100% pure linen and cotton providing effortless style and ultimate comfort for sunny days. Every item of clothing is thoughtfully designed and made to last, pairing durable fabrics with classic and timeless designs, that include:

  • Cool, breezy pieces for men and women that can be easily mixed and matched for stylish everyday outfits – from crisp linen shirts and shorts to chic dresses and versatile tees in a range of colours. 
  • An extensive collection of t-shirts (priced from R149) in a variety of silhouettes including regular, fitted, boxy, oversized and relaxed.
  • Girls’ stylish summer dresses in fun prints and colours, perfect for play and everyday adventures.
  • Comfy kiddies’ basics (ages 3 – 13) made from 100% cotton available in a range of colours, providing endless options for preschool and weekend wear.

UNIQ clothing also stocks superior quality underwear that includes boxers, trunk shorts, panties and bras. 

Fabrics have been specifically selected for comfort and convenience, and it is the first local clothing retailer to introduce Supima cotton to the mass market. With longer fibres than regular cotton, this superior quality cotton is softer and twice as strong as regular cotton for extra longevity, keeping clothing lustrous even after many washes. 

A UNIQ checkout experience 

In keeping with the Group’s commitment to convenience through innovation, UNIQ clothing is the first clothing retailer in South Africa to offer self-service checkout. Smart tags and advanced radio-frequency identification (RFID) enable customers to easily scan and pay for items.  

Customers will be assisted on the sales floor by well-trained employees, with on average nine new jobs created with the opening of every UNIQ store.
