Supa Quick – one of the country’s leading fitment retailers – is embarking on an aggressive expansion programme, in a bid to broaden its already sizeable footprint.
10 new stores will be unveiled during the course of 2021, with plans for further expansion in 2022. “With business radically changing in the era of the pandemic, we need to be where the action is,” stated Morne Dreyer, Franchise Director for the Supa Quick retail group.
Supa Quick management is currently busy meeting with property developers to identify key trading areas that will continue to position Supa Quick as top of mind to the consumer. “We enjoy the largest footprint of all the retail chains, and we are aiming to maintain this advantage,” added Dreyer.
He went on to say that the Supa Quick retail chain of stores is affiliated with Bridgestone – one of the largest tyre manufacturers in the world – and is, therefore, able to provide a wide range of services and product offerings, including the Tyre Damage Guarantee on the Firestone and Bridgestone tyre brands. Moreover, the company enjoys an exclusive partnership with eBucks, whereby customers can spend their eBucks vouchers at any Supa Quick nationally or earn 200 eBucks when they go into a Supa Quick for a free safety check.
Plus, Supa Quick has established a Centralised Billing system to automate their national fleet business.
