Royal Show boosts local business

2010-05-27 00:00

HIRSCH’S Pietermaritzburg is one of many local businesses that have been given a boost by the annual Royal Show, set to begin tomorrow.

Situated next to the Royal Agricultural Showgrounds, Hirsch’s Pietermaritzburg (in Chatterton Road) is hoping to “create a greater hype” in the city during the first weekend of the show.

Hirsch’s will host a family fun weekend and flea market from 9 am on Saturday, May 29.

Food stalls, crafts, gifts and children’s entertainment will take over the business premises for the day.

PRO Charlotte Janse van Rensburg said this would be an opportunity for Pietermaritzburg business owners to showcase their businesses to the visitors of the show.

“We are confident that the Royal Show will be a benefit to all the business owners in and around the Royal Showgrounds,” she said.
