Mara Phones opens first experience store in South Africa

Mara Phones has officially opened its first experience store in South Africa at Maponya Mall in Soweto, the hub of Klipspruit.

This development happens exactly one year since the opening by Mara Phones of the country’s first smartphone manufacturing facility.

The company’s opening of two facilities for retail and manufacturing within a short space of time represents bold steps for Africa’s most established home-grown smartphone brand in a challenging but promising environment.

Mara aims to open an impressive 50 experience stores by the end of 2022, both company-owned and independently operated.

Sylvester Taku, Head of Growth at Mara Phones South Africa said, “The launch of the first Mara Experience Store cements our commitment to expand our retail footprint in South Africa and to make it easier for customers to experience and purchase our smartphones.”

The new store will enable customers to experience the look and feel of Mara Phones devices while being able to interact with Mara Phones technical specialists in their own community.  The store will not only stock the latest Mara Phones devices but will also sell the latest accessories including phone covers and screen protectors.
