MWEB, previously an online only brand announced today the opening of its third retail store in South Africa. Situated in Pretoria’s Centurion shopping centre, the concept store is part of a national roll-out strategy of similar retail stores due to open in South Africa over the next few years.
The Centurion store will complement the store openings of Cape Town’s Canal Walk in August 2010 and Johannesburg’s Cresta shopping centre in 2008. The aim of these retail stores are part of MWEB’s strategy in helping to educate the public about the Internet and improving customer support. Customers will be able to seek face-to-face advice from friendly trained consultants, experience the latest technologies on offer before making a purchasing decision and most importantly being able to interact with the MWEB brand.
Says Carolyn Holgate, General Manager of MWEB Connect, “We are continuing to look for means to improve the way our customers experience the Internet. By being the first ISP to launch Uncapped ADSL in South Africa earlier this year we have seen more and more people exploring the best and most affordable connectivity options. We believe that by having a physical place for our customers to come for advice we’re making their overall experience more tangible.”
The Centurion Store features the latest in technology, including various products, two touch screen monitors and an Internet Café where customers can see the best that the Internet has to offer, including being able to view Google Earth and catching up on social networks such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. During the month of October the MWEB store will offer a number of promotions on products and reduced rates on Internet connectivity.
