New store concept for Weylandts in South Africa

4th December 2017

South African furniture and homewares retailer Weylandts has launched a new store concept at its latest branch, in Sandton City shopping centre in Johannesburg.

Company founder and owner Chris Weylandt has worked with Weylandts Spaces, the interior design division of the retailer to design the new store, which is the brand’s first mall store.

“Although the product we feature in Sandton City will range from the affordable to the luxurious, the in-store experience will be exciting and memorable. Each visit will engage all five senses and deliver world-class customer service. We have installed never-before-seen furniture and homeware, dramatic window displays, touchscreens and even a champagne bar,” says Weylandt.

The store sells lighting, cookware, crockery, linen, artwork, and bathroom accessories, with a number of brands that are exclusive to Weylandts in South Africa.

A grey and black colour palette features stone, metal and concrete finishes, with full height windows giving distant views into the store.

The new store is the company’s ninth in South Africa. Weylandts has also expanded internationally, opening stores in Namibia and Australia.
