The PG Empire Online Story
The story begins with a passion to provide world class service and quality products at fair pricing to the community of Nelspruit. The vision was to have a store with an upmarket feel that provided unique products over and above the standard ones found in most other stores.
Plastic and Glass Empire opened in November 2012 with a 800sqm store and quickly became a loved shopping destination for the people of Nelspruit. Within a short time, the neighbouring countries of Mozambique and Swaziland discovered this gem and soon became massive supporters of the brand.
With its unprecedented growth, PG Empire then expanded into a larger store of 1600sqm and started to increase its product ranges to include some exotic products from such countries as New Zealand, Turkey, Argentina, Vietnam and United States over and above the trusted products manufactured here in South Africa and China. The introduction of these unique and affordable range of products again necessitated the next expansion to the current store size of 2500sqm.
The vision objectives had been achieved and with this success, the need to move the business onto the online arena following a significant number of requests to purchase products from various part of the country, has now resulted in our next phase of providing our products to a wider customer base in the form of our new Online store situated in the heart of the East Rand – PG Empire Online. A Modern Warehouse stocked with the most popular products from the Nelspruit store. Whilst we will not be carrying all the ranges initially, our aim is to keep on adding over 100 products a month to our online catalogue so that our new customer base can enjoy what our Lowvelders have had over the last 8 years.
