What an awesome day.

July 25, 2012

Yesterday I flew to the Mr Price headquarters in Durban to view their new Summer 2012 collection as well check out their new ONLINE store ( www.mrp.co.za goes live on Monday), which by the way is amazing.

In fact the whole day was some what amazing. We were super spoilt by The Mr P team and the whole day/experience was so personalised and lovely. They really went out of their way to show us an awesome time and we got to be the first guys in the country to test drive their new online store. We were given R500 and told to go shopping – shopping, I love that word.

We had a delicious lunch and cocktails like it was no ones business. Emma and I even had whisky in our coffee – yip, we figured we weren’t the ones flying us home (thank goodness) so why the hell not!



The site is so well laid out and so easy to navigate and it’s going to have so much on it to buy. You see not all their shops carry their full range but their site will, so that means you will have over 18 000 things to browse and choose from and the best part, there is a flat delivery rate of R35 no matter how much you buy AND it gets delivered to your house/office/flat/mom’s house/ you name the place and they will send it there. They will even deliver it to your nearest Mr P store.


I really think Mr Price is onto something awesome here, I have never seen such a cool and easy to navigate South African online store before, I really think they have done their homework and done it well. The stuff I ordered yesterday arrived THIS morning and in a cool box to boot. They also have a return policy, so if you don’t like something you send it right back. Easy peasy.

Look at all my neat stuff I got (the maxi skirt is so nice, lovely hangy material).

They also sent us home with a nice goodie bag. We got shoes, a t-shirt, sweets and a Magic Mouse, which Shane has already claimed.

Thanks again guys for everything. If you ever need a guinea pig again for anything, give me a call.

    So lucky! I’m super excited for this! The Mr P close to where I live is TINY so they never have a wide variety of goods so now I get to pick and choose from the whole collection. Happy.
