Clicks Group expands into Botswana

12 July 2011

South African health and beauty retailer Clicks Group has expanded into Botswana with the launch of its first Clicks store at Game City, one of the largest shopping malls in Gaborone.

Speaking at the store’s launch last week, Clicks Group finance executive Du Toit Britz said the store would give Botswana access to one of South Africa’s “best loved health and beauty brands”.

“With a track record of over 40 years in retail, we aim to be the first to market with innovative health and beauty products, and are proud to add Botswana to the Clicks family,” Britz said.

The next Clicks store in Botswana will open at BR Mall in October, with a further store opening at the new Airport Junction development early in 2012.

Extensive selection of products

The store will offer an extensive selection of home, health and beauty products, including Clicks private label and exclusive ranges, as well as the latest in fine fragrances and baby care.

Other innovations include the Clicks ClubCard loyalty programme, which will give Clicks Botswana customers the opportunity to earn ClubCard points and cash back in Pula, and the recently launched Clicks Babyclub for ClubCard members, Britz said.

Established in 1968 in Cape Town, South Africa, Clicks has a footprint of over 380 stores with 277 in-store dispensaries in South Africa, Namibia, Swaziland and now Botswana.

It is the company’s vision to expand to 500 stores across the Southern African region, each with a dispensary and clinic, within the next five years.
