South Africa’s two largest clothing online retailers are offering massive sales ahead of their integration in coming months.
Spree is offering consumers up to 75% off on most products, while Superbalist is offering 60%, with an additional 20% if two sale items are bought.
The two Naspers-owned entities officially merged at the start of the month. Takealot will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and management of the business.
Superbalist and Spree both fall under a newly formed management company called FashionCo, Takealot CEO Kim Reid told Business Insider South Africa earlier this month.
"This is not, however, the new client-facing brand. Decisions around brands etc. have not yet been made (and) we are currently undertaking an intensive planning phase during which we’ll make these decisions."
Details about the integration of the two brands are expected in early August. Each business will continue to operate independently before final integration.
