PRESS RELEASE JULY 2016
Speaking on the acquisition, Digicape MD, Robin Olivier says, “We have been looking to expand into new territories for a while now and Stellenbosch has always been a region that we were interested in. We have great respect for Buro and how they have conducted business, so this is an exciting time for all of us.”
By joining the Digicape group the Stellenbosch store will benefit from a number of enhancements and an increased stock and product range, making sure customers have access to the latest technology, products and accessories. All products previously bought from Buro will continue to be supported and warranties maintained by Digicape. For quick support or basic troubleshooting, customers can visit the in-store Fundi bar to speak to a technician and for more advanced support there will be an onsite workshop for repairs.
“The outgoing Buro team is very excited about the real benefits these changes will bring to our loyal customers in Stellenbosch. Being part of the bigger and long-established Digicape family will take the store and services offered to new heights,” says Ben-Carl Havemann of Buro Stores.
“This acquisition brings us closer to our vision of reaching more people with our technology and expertise to bring about real change to people’s lives. What is also exciting for us is that Digicape is growing during one of the toughest economic climates we’ve seen. This is testament to the great people we have,” concludes Olivier.
To celebrate the launch of Digicape Stellenbosch there will be a host of special deals and upgrades on offer.
