Hirsch’s Carnival opened their doors recently – with the skies opening as well. But that didn’t stop the happy atmosphere in the store – with customers lining up at the door from early in the morning. They were warmly greeted with coffee, candy floss and popcorn, and The Mayor of Ekurhuleni, Mzwandile Masina also popped around to show his support for this “New Kid On the Block.”
Commenting on the opening, CEO of the Hirsch Group, Allan Hirsch said “I am delighted with the opening of the Carnival city store. It is one of the most attractive stores we have in the Hirsch group – Open and very light. We have been overwhelmed with the welcome from the local community. The Brakpan area is a really fast growing industrial and residential area. I believe the move out here is excellent, and we look forward to many many happy, returning customers.
