Hirsch's : Smeg Competition
3 Aug – 31 Aug
Hirsch's is the ultimate home appliance store operating in Kwazulu-Natal, Cape Town and Gauteng. By the end of 2012, Hirsch topped the R1 billion turnover mark.
Hirsch's started out as a single store, first specializing in repairs and second hand appliances. From there they grew into a full appliance, electronic and household goods retailer.
To this day Hirsch's stores are still a family run business, with all 4 members actively involved in all day to day operations.
Margaret, the CEO of Hirsch’s is a true entrepreneur who sees potential where others see obstacles. When the microwave first came to SA, Margaret embraced the new technology and started a microwave cooking school. From there she produced the first Hirsch’s microwave cookbook, which is still available today. She has also been crowned Business woman of the year by Entrepreneur and has been nominated as the most influential woman in retail in SA.
The Hirsch’s family together form an unstoppable force. They are backed by a strong management team who are committed to the same goals as the Hirsch's family. They also have over 600 permanent staff and about 400 casuals.
They are also very much involved in a range of CSI initiatives, including various charities and sponsorships. They have not outgrown any of their stores, just built bigger ones.
