Mall honours its retailer of the year

2010-11-16 00:00

THE Southcoast Mall held a glitzy ceremony and end-of-year party at the Kapenta Bay Hotel on Friday, where they honoured their 12 stores-of-the-month winners, and named the store of the year.

Shoe retail store Froggie was given this honour, with centre manager Tracy Kohler handing over the trophy and a cash prize of R5 000.

Froggie, which is not a branch of the franchise and is owned by Ken and Maggie Porter, was rewarded for its customer excellence and quality products.

The couple opened the store three years ago after scoping the coast for the perfect location.

“We saw how big the mall was growing and realised it was the future of retail on the South Coast,” they said.

“It is great to see that the mall has continued in its growth and we are excited to be a part of its future.”

The couple, who are running a schools shoe special and display in Froggie until the end of January, said they enjoy the support and service they receive from the mall.

“The security here is fantastic,” they said. “And the centre management always offers the best service to the tenants with a friendly and caring attitude.”

Prayer may have had something to do with their success this year. Maggie is responsible for a prayer group that meets in the centre’s boardroom every week. “We pray for the continued success and growth of the mall,” she said.
