Jordan Footwear Stores, Factory Shops and Offers

Jordan Footwear Bronx Catalogue

Jordan Footwear is a South African brand with a fascinating history. The shoe factory was founded by Alfred Jordan in 1899, after having worked for a shoe factory called Panther in the Cape winelands town of Wellington. He resigned from the factory with a lot of experience and mission to establish his own shoe manufacturing business, which was to be named after his family name.

The first shoe factory began operations in a small building with only 12 workers, and Alfred Jordan was the sole owner in charge of production, management and quality control. For nearly 40 years, the Jordan factory produced at least 30 pairs of shoes a day. By this time, Edwyn Jordan, the founder’s son had taken over the firm and he seized the opportunity to expand the firm by purchasing a bigger size of land to build a big factory which was capable of turning out 300 pairs of shoes in a day.

When Edwyn Jordan died in 1961, he had already made an arrangement with his son Ted Jordan who was the next heir to the Jordan business empire, to merge Jordan & Co with Jagger Shoes, a company run by Ted Jordan. Like his father, Ted believed in innovation and modernization of the production process. It was in the 1960s and shoe factories in Europe were using advanced machinery which increased daily output by about eight times. The current machinery being employed in the La Blois Cape estate at the time was outdated and could not meet the demand. A modern plant was purchased from Europe and shipped to the Cape Colony. Although the shoe manufacturing plant was expensive, it proved to be the right and profitable solution which increased output to over 1,000 pairs of shoes a day.

The modern Jordan footwear stores and factory shops are found in most areas of the Western Cape and other provinces in South Africa. Distribution centres are found in Botswana and Namibia. Jordan is one of the most popular shoe companies in South Africa. You have six brand names to choose from – the Bronx shoe brand is available for men, women and safety footwear. Other shoe brands are Milano Anton Fabi, Olympic and Tshisa style.

Bronx is a popular brand for men that is known for its durable leather, tough rubber soles and high quality stitching. Shoes for special occasions, work, school and office are available. The Bronx brand for women was introduced in 2005. It features the same high quality of material that is observed on men’s shoes, but with uniquely styled designs for sandals, flats, sneakers and heels.

Cotton-On Stores, Factory Shops and Offers

Cottonon Womens Collection and Catalogues
Cottonon Womens Collection and Catalogue

Cotton-On is an international fashion store for casual wear, teenage clothing, kids wear, shoes, undergarments and sportswear. As the story goes, the business was founded by a man named Nigel Austin. Nigel started selling items when he was only 18 years old. His first breakthrough came in 1991 when he started selling washed-out jean jackets also known as acid wash jeans. His humble store was located in a local market stall in Geelong. Nigel’s first attempt at selling washed-out jeans was a flop because although customers expressed interest in the jackets, they didn’t buy them. He had no idea why people weren’t buying the jackets, so he decided to solicit some advice from his father. It seems there was only one hurdle that was discouraging people from buying the jackets – they were overpriced. He reduced the price and the rest is history, people bought the jackets like hot cakes.

Today, Cotton-On is an internationally recognized brand with stores and factory shops around the world. There are 124 stores in the USA, 879 stores in Australia, 138 stores in New Zealand and 118 stores in South Africa. Over 150 stores are scattered in Asia and the Gulf region.

Eighteen years later, after his first market breakthrough, Nigel Austin launched the first official Cottonon brand store in Malaysia, which was officially opened in 2009. Since then, Cottonon has penetrated a lot of major markets in Asia, Asia Pacific, North America, Saudi Arabia and Africa. They are now on a mission to conquer South America.

There are six types of brands owned by Cotton-On and these are Free, Body, T-Bar, Rubi, Kids and Typo.

Cottonon Free specializes in youth wear such as jeans, jackets, shirts, pants, caps, trousers and other types of casual wear. The brand reflects a relaxed and cool style that is favoured by young people from Sweet Sixteen to young adults in their late 20s.

Cottonon Body is a brand that caters for the female demographic, women and girls who like a specialized store for underwear, lingerie, bras, night dresses, pyjamas, briefs and all types of bedroom wear. You will also find apparel and clothing for sports, fitness and adventure such as aerobics, running and tennis.

Cottonon T-bar is a service that prints custom t-shirts for anybody who wants a unique and individual design. If you are in touch with fashion trends, you will notice that T-shirt printing services such as TeeSpring and Print Aura are popular with young people on social media. You simply go to the online store and submit your design. The company will print the T-shirt and ship it to you.

Cottonon Rubi is a footwear brand where you can buy sneakers and shoes for men and women.

Cottonon Kids supplies apparel and clothing for kids.

The last brand store is Typo. This is not a fashion store but it’s a store that sells stationery for the office, school and home. The store is also a homeware supplier.

So you know Cotton-On but do you know how to take advantage of the cost-saving opportunities offered by this fashion company? A majority of people are blind buyers who don’t do enough research before shopping. They buy on impulse or when they are desperately in need of something.

So you can pick up anything from the store with a minimum value of 600 Rands and pay back the balance over 24 or 36 months. That means if you buy some Denim shirts worth R600, you don’t have to pay 600 Rands to the cashier, but you can pay an initial deposit of R25 and R25 every month for 24 months.

A Cottonon store card can be used at all brand stores owned by the fashion store, from the Free store for young people to the Body store for women’s lingerie. You will also be eligible for special offers that are not accessible to customers without a card.

Other main benefits of applying for a store card are that you get insurance coverage provided by the store.

The store offers four types of insurance products. These are funeral cover, loss of employment cover and two types of disability cover for permanent and temporary injury.

To get this card, you have to apply online or simply go to the store in your area and submit your documents. The minimum requirements for applicants are that you should be at least 18 years old, have a monthly income of R1000, be a holder of a South African ID card, passport or drivers license and provide proof of payment for the last 3 months.

When you have a shopping account, it is critical to have tracking features for security purposes. The store card comes with an SMS notification system that sends you alerts whenever there is a transaction on your account.

Playtex Catalogue and Collections for Womens Bra, Underwear and Shapewear
Playtex Catalogue and Collections for Womens Bra, Underwear and Shapewear

Playtex is a brand store for women and girls, specializing in the manufacture of bras, underwear and shapewear. Established in 1947 as a subsidiary of its parent company ILC, the firm diversified its product offering by venturing into the tampon manufacturing business, through the creation of a sub-division called Playtex Products.

Playtex is credited with inventing the successful plastic tampon applicator as well as introducing scented tampons to the market. By venturing into the tampon business with these creative concepts, the company became one of the top tampon providers giving the established leader Tampax, a run for its money.

The original focus of Playtex’s parent company ILC was manufacturing latex wear and accessories. One of their major contract highlights was being tasked to design and produce latex space suits for the 1969 Apollo moon landing mission.

Another great achievement by Playtex was being able to penetrate and dominate the bra market from the beginning of 1980, making it the market leader in selling bras during that period.

The company has changed hands several times in its history, being bought at least six times and sold to the next successive owner for multi-million dollars. Today, it operates as two separate businesses, Playtex Products and Playtex Apparel. The Playtex Products business is owned by Energizer Holdings who bought the firm for 1.16 billion US dollars in 2006. Playtex Apparel is owned by HanesBrands Corporation.

Through a few acquisitions made by Playtex over the years, the company does not only make bras, tampons, underwear and shapewear, but they have increased their product offering to sunscreens, sanitary cloths, kitchen gloves, cups and baby bottles.

Modern Playtex stores and factory shops are scattered all over the world in the USA, Canada, Asia, UK, France, Australia and South Africa. To get the best deals in your area, you have to check the local online store.

In South Africa, you can find Playtex stores on Zando. The Zando store sells a range of bras, shapers, panties and leggings.

If you are not buying anything, you can add items to your wish list for future action. If you buy items above the threshold price, your orders will be eligible for free delivery, provided that you are a local resident.

The Playtex UK store only delivers within the UK, there is no international shipping. In this case, if you do not live in the United Kingdom, you have to make use of a UK forwarding agent to buy the items for you.

Playtex Factory Shops

Playtex items are sold by retailers and distributors around the world. You can also get them at the factory shops in your area. The South Africa store has launched an online store where South Africans can buy and have the items shipped to their home address, from the Playtex warehouse.

Innovation

Playtex is not just a manufacturer of bras and undergarments, but they have an innovation team that improves the design and comfort of their products.

Woolworths Stores, Factory Shops and Offers

Woolworths Fashion Catalogue 2017
Woolworths Fashion Catalogue 2017

Woolworths or Woolies as it is commonly called is a well-known departmental store with several stores in South Africa and Australia. Woolworths stores and factory shops are where you can find fashion items like clothing, footwear, lingerie, bags, belts, jewellery, purses, sunglasses, watches, umbrellas, scarves and wraps. The South African retail store was founded in 1931 and it is headquartered in Cape Town, South Africa. They say everybody is influenced by somebody or something which they draw their inspiration from. In the case of Woolworths, the founders were inspired by a UK retail store, Mark and Spencer (M&S). They adopted the M&S concept for their first stores in South Africa and created ties with the UK company, which resulted in Woolworths selling its remaining shares to M&S. Later on, M&S decided to sell the shares but cooperation between the two companies remained intact. Truworths was the next company to merge with Woolworths but the romance was dissolved in 2001, leaving Woolworths with complete ownership of its firm. At this point, the company was performing well financially, thanks to its prior relationship with Truworths. Thirteen years later, the company made a $2.15 billion acquisition by buying David Stones, an Aussie store.

While you might be familiar with the fashion stores, you will be excited to know that Woolworths also provides food services like grocery stores, cafes and restaurants at specific locations. At grocery stores, you can buy fresh vegetables, fruits, meat, milk products, bakery products, wine and other edible items that you would want to prepare in the kitchen. There is a homeware section where you can find a variety of kitchenware, gadgets and equipment like food mixers, dinner plates, fridges, stoves and electric kettles. Other than clothing and homeware, women will also like the cosmetics section which features a variety of beauty products for skin, hair and nail care.

Another interesting department offered by the Woolies brand store is the Woolworths financial services which you can consult to get financial help in the form of loans, insurance coverage and credit cards.

So let’s dive into the question that you are burning to ask. What are the ways to purchase items at discounted prices and save money at Woolworths? You can save money by following the tips below:
