Hi my beauties,
I’m sure you all knew that Ghana is on its way up in numerous ways, but the latest companies looking to take advantage of this economical growth is international retailer Sunglasses hut and Payless Shoes and Spanish retailer Mango. They have all been brought to us through a partnership with The Azadea Group, a premium fashion and lifestyle company that owns and runs more than 50+ international retail franchises across the Middle East, North Africa, Asia and Europe.
They have now set their sights on West Africa so touched down in Ghana (of course!) and will be bringing more international retail shops our way in the very near future including fashion and accessories, food and beverages, home furnishings and multimedia.
I visited Mango (Payless shoes is next door), which is located in Accra Mall and to be honest it was great to see a normal shopping experience, what I mean by normal is a shop that has a great window display, has thought about the store layout and has all garments in all sizes. This is because more retailers in Ghana are privately owned boutiques so never seem to have garments in all sizes and if they did they do not restock often enough. So it nice to go, see what you like and get your size.
However their garments are expensive, a pair of white trousers are 225 Ghc (£45). Thats about the same price as the UK I hear you say but in Ghana the average worker does not get paid the same wage as in the UK so I think somehow the items should have been priced less. Mango is not a luxury brand in the UK so I don’t see why it should seem that way for Ghanaians here in Ghana.
However, I am still very excited and can’t wait to see what comes next…
Take care guys x
