The first Orange retail store in South Africa will open on 26 June 2015, selling mobile gadgets and accessories from a location in Claremont.
“The opening of a physical store is a logical step for us,” said Orange Horizons CEO Sébastien Crozier.
Crozier said this is because the response to the Orange Online Store in South Africa exceeded their expectations, which led to a local warehouse being established to service the market.
To celebrate the occasion, Orange is offering an array of opening specials on the latest tech gadgets, for a limited time.
The opening specials are detailed in the table below.
