JOHANNESBURG – JOHN Craig, the men’s clothing retail store,  has opened another prestigious store at Eastgate Mall in Johannesburg as  part of its expansion exercise.

There are plans to open new outlets in fashion trendsetting malls like   Mandela Square in Sandton, Canal Walk Shopping Centre in Cape Town and  Menlyn Park Shopping Centre in the capital Pretoria.

The company recently opened more stores in Centurion and Johannesburg   South.

“We are predominantly in Limpopo, Mpumalanga, Free State probably where  we have little bit of presence is the Western Cape and that is the  journey we need to take,” John Craig Chief Executive Officer Lily  Moreira, said

John Craig has 108 stores countrywide.

It has already expanded its stores to Namibia where there are six  outlets.

“The thing with John Craig has been around for many years because we  have been traditionally secondary malls like Tzaneen Mall in Limpopo and  Canal Walk Mall, Johannesburg the brand awareness isn’t quite there  where we want it to be but East Gate Mall is a milestone for us,”  Moreira added.

John Craig was established in 1947. It has for years been known as  classical and traditional but since 2017, it has changed its look to  suit younger people.

“If we have learnt anything over the last ten years, it’s that a number  things change. First of all customers no longer wanted formal clothes  they wanted casual,” Moreira said.

The event in Eastgate hosted A-lister celebrities such as actor, Vuyo  Dabula, and presenters Jonathan Boynton Lee and Mxolisi Masango as well  as social media sensation Dimpie Dimpopo and wheelchair tennis star,  Evans Maripa.
