Save Cash & Carry relaunches Dalton store

2011-03-04 00:00

A LEADING Pietermaritzburg-based business, Save Cash & Carry, has moved a step closer toward achieving its ambitious expansion and growth targets with the official relaunch of a store in Dalton.

Save Cash & Carry told The Witness that the store, which was the first shop bought by the business’s founder, Moosa Noorgat, from A. Ross and Sons, covers about 2 600 square metres.

The business was established in the mid-1980s by Noorgat as a wholesaler.

The cost of the refurbishment project in Dalton amounts to several million rands and comes on the back of a major revamp undertaken at its main Pietermaritzburg store, as well as the launch of a store in Truro Plaza in the northern suburbs of Pietermaritzburg.

As is the case with the store in Pietermaritzburg, the Dalton store boasts a bakery, hot food deli counter, fruit and vegetable stock, as well as groceries, cosmetics, clothing and general merchandise. There is also a fully-fledged restaurant known as Stripes. Some 40 people are employed in the Dalton store.

The group consists of Save Victoria Road, Save Truro Plaza (Pietermaritzburg) and Save Dalton.

The group said, “Save has spent significantly on the refurbishment of this store. It was closed from September 2010 and completed end of January 2011. The cost of the project [amounts] to several million rands. The store will sell at the same prices as the other branches in the group to give the customer the most competitive prices.”
