ESWATINI, 2 November 2020 – West Pack Lifestyle is set to open its first store in the Kingdom of Eswatini on Thursday 19 November, at Malkerns Square. With more than 60 West Pack stores across Sub-Saharan Africa, West Pack Express Malkerns will meet the growing need by shoppers for better value for money products for the home, business, schools, churches, small businesses and catering sectors.
The new store, situated at Malkerns Square in Malkerns, will add a new world class brand to the iconic residential and commercial estate . The store will be managed by Sharon Dlamini, who has significant experience in retail and who will be joining West Pack from from Pick n Pay Mbabane to lead the new West Pack Express Malkerns team. “Having just spent six weeks training at the West Pack’s head office in Johannesburg, South Africa, I am so excited to introduce West Pack’s unique retail concept and outstanding customer service to Eswatini. Shoppers can look forward to great value for money combo deals, bigger quantities and better prices for home, office and school essentials,” said Sharon.
With its roots in plasticware and packaging, the West Pack Lifestyle brand has evolved to offer so much more than just plastic storage and organisation. West Pack Lifestyle is truly a shopping wonder emporium, with always more than you expect. “West Pack is a one-stop shop for office and school, has the best deals on catering and packaging supplies, and the largest smart thinking developmental toys yet to be seen in Eswatini. We are especially excited about the dedicated balloon counter with helium, fun party supplies and sweets and snacks in one shop,” added Sharon. West Pack Eswatini is excited to inform its customers that it aims to ensure there will be no price difference between South Africa and Eswatini. Thus, customers who shop at West Pack in South Africa can now get what they need at the same prices without the hassle of travelling to South Africa
The opening day of West Pack Express Malkerns will see face painters for the kids, local DJ and opening specials not to be missed. West Pack Express will also be making a donation to the Lamahhina local Eswatini Care Centre (Soup Kitchen) in Mbabane that also assists with basic education for early childhood development (ECD) of orphans and other vulnerable children. The donation from two of West Pack’s stationery partners, National Stationery and Freedom Stationery, includes Typek paper, erasers, scissors, coloured pencils, whiteboards and other educational materials for 80 children – all of which West Pack Lifestyle offers in-store.
Customers who shop in-store on opening day will be entered into a lucky draw to participate in a famous West Pack Trolley Dash. The winner will have 60 seconds to fill their trolley with as much as they can fit, up to a total value of E1000.
