AGE does not bring with it many benefits, but one of the benefits certainly is pensioner discounts and special events.

Game in Galleria wanted to give back to the community, specifically the elderly and recently launched their Pensioners’ Day initiative on Wednesdays.

“We started this initiative by giving pensioners spending R1 500 or more, a R150 [10%] discount on Wednesdays. We set up a picnic area where we serve biscuits and hot beverages to our pensioners and hope to build on this initiative,” Game store manager, Mannie Chetty, said.

“This is a great initiative, we enjoyed our tea and have the opportunity of meeting new friends.

“The Game staff painted my nails and we could leisurely read the paper,” Maureen Alleaune said.

Her husband, Guy said: “I really enjoyed this experience, and will definitely come again.”
