Hotel and e-Commerce store announce the opening of a pop-up store
Cape Town, South Africa – The renowned Colosseum Luxury Hotel and MzansiStore have announced their plans to enter into a joint venture through the opening of a pop-up store. MzansiStore is an e-Commerce platform that supports local producers of handcrafted products. A selection of the store’s goods, which are usually only available online, will be showcased and made available for purchase at the Colosseum hotel as of 16 July 2014.
Deidre Luzmore started MzansiStore in September 2012 after noticing that there was a substantial amount of small-scale South African producers of quality handcrafted products who needed more exposure than they could get from selling their creations on local streets or at craft markets. A hotel frequented by both national and international guests, the Colosseum will be providing additional display space for the online store’s goods. In this way, local producers will benefit by gaining even more exposure through this collaboration.
This will be the first endeavour of its kind both for MzansiStore and the Colosseum Luxury Hotel. The products that will be showcased will vary, including anything from fashion for men, women and kids, homeware, jewellery, art, wedding items and Big Five memorabilia.
MzansiStore is an eMarketplace that provides local South African creative designers with a shop front where they can showcase their entire product range. They give these designers the tools and e-Commerce training they need to make their business a success. Brands are also promoted through MzansiStore’s social media, blog, newsletters and so forth. It was founded by Deidré Luzmore, who is fiercely proud to be a South African and a true local-loving loyal.
