Hirsch’s Milnerton is now three days into the UCT One Stop Show. We’ve had slow times and busy times, but all the time we have been on the hunt for feet for our store. Daily between four and seven Hirsch’s Milnerton staff members scour the streets looking for potential customers, and our Mattress Mascot causing quite a stir as he welcomes people inside.
We have seen quite a variety of customers; from returning students, to newbies and foreigners lost in the whole registration process, to parents with apprehensive kids and just the average joe off the street.
The Samsung virtual reality system was a hit with everyone, and the demo with air-fried chips were received with enthusiasm. After their visit to our pop up shop, some customers took the opportunity to take a break from the heat, reclining on the grass in the shade of the trees.
