NEWCASTLE – On Saturday, Value City celebrates its first birthday.

This won’t be some frivolous bash, but rather a chance for the retailer to give back to the community through crazy in-store specials, great value for money and excellent customer service.

“We want to thank the community for its unwavering support; we have always its support because we always make sure they receive good quality brands and products at low prices,” explained Sid Ameen and Zubair Paruk of the management team.

The birthday celebrations will kick off with the Black Friday sale, a precursor to continued crazy birthday in-store specials on Saturday.

Shoppers can anticipate fun, entertainment, prizes and surprises.

More than 60 prizes will be up for grabs, plus random spot prizes and promotions from established brands such as Hisense, Prima Toys and Salton.

“Newcastle Community Radio will broadcast live and is bringing local artists, plus we will have Aja Nachale Dance group, Zulu dancers, Thembelihle Shelter’s gumboot dancers and a live singer. We’ll have face painting, a jumping castle, cartoon characters, food stalls and balloons.”

The specials promise to be unbeatable, and both staff and management are hard at work to make this milestone event a success.

“The fire was a bad time, and we’re happy to have reached this milestone.”

Looking forward, the management team hopes to continue Value City’s growth phase, and keep its keen pricing in check.

As always, the best prices and quality are a given.

Despite a tough year as the economy rises and falls, Value City has come a long hard road and the team is committed to its cause.

“In five years, we want to be the biggest independent retailer of non-food items in KwaZulu-Natal, God willing.”

Ahead of the grand birthday celebrations, members of the Value City team visited Thembelihle Children’s Shelter near Kilbarchan.

The children were treated to cake, burgers and more.

“It went well,” said staff members on Monday morning. “We wanted to do something for them, no matter how big or small.”
