South Africa’s most loved brands were announced recently at the AskAfrika Icon Brands Survey awards in Johannesburg. Value retailer, Ackermans, was awarded the top honour in the Clothing Retail: Children’s category, for a third time in a row, and was further announced as a Platinum Brand Icon.
“As a retailer that is celebrating over 100 years in this country, we are incredibly proud and humbled. Winning the award for the third time, illustrates our commitment to providing the most value for money, one of the core drivers in our business,” says Ephraim Mamabolo, Marketing Director at Ackermans.
South Africans had to vote for their top 50 brands from across 222 product categories. The survey further identified 60 Platinum brands which are defined as brands that South Africans are tangibly committed and loyal to; in that, they put their money where their mouths are to demonstrate this commitment.
“As these awards are based on public vote, we are truly grateful to our customers for allowing us to make a measurable contribution in their lives, through offering quality products without compromising on price or style,” concludes Mamabolo.
