We have a brand-new official retail partner who are now selling a select range of Mad Dogs products and apparel. Our new retail partner, Takealot.com almost needs no introduction. For those who don’t know, they are the leading ecommerce retailer in South Africa and one of the largest, most innovative ecommerce retailers on the African continent.
The company was officially launched in June 2011, following the successful acquisition of an existing ecommerce business, Take2 in October 2010. During 2014, Takealot.com received a $100m investment from Tiger Global which was quickly followed by the purchase of Mr Delivery. This gave the business ownership over its own logistics network and app-based on-demand food delivery service. This same year also saw the successful acquisition of Superbalist.com, a curated design and fashion website, and culminated in the announcement that Kalahari.com (Naspers) would be merging businesses with Takealot.com, thus forming the premier online shopping destination in Africa. Takealot.com strives to have the widest range of products and the best possible customer service on the African continent.
Our business is retail, and we strive to have the widest range of products and the best possible customer service on the African continent. We’re doing it by employing great people and developing innovative, cutting-edge tech. We want to know our customers. We want to be a part of their lives. We want each experience they have with us to leave them with a smile.
Takealot.com showcases an impressive number of international fashion and clothing brands that include: Levi’s, RVCA, Fox, Timberland, Soviet, Lee Cooper, Fossil, and Casio to name a few. This expansive range of brands will now include Mad Dogs Clothing, as of May 2023. We have built a custom collection of items from scratch, specifically for Takealot.com in order to provide a distinct and unique offering to not just their customers, but the entire continent. The foundation of this collection was built on our Uniform items, which are comprised of classic silhouettes and our nostalgic brand identity. The goal of this collection was to form something that envisioned a perfect balance between truly classic Mad Dogs apparel and everyday styles, along with the influence of the Winter season. We believe has been achieved perfectly.
By partnering with Takealot.com, we aim to create significantly greater access to our brand and products across the country and entire continent. They have a truly remarkable and expansive retail network, along with a fantastic reputation which allows our existing customers and first-time buyers to have a familiar destination to engage with us.
