HIFI Corp is a brand of Pepkor trading (PTY) LTD part of the Steinhoff Group trading under the registration number 1963/002315/07.
After more than two decades of the leading budget beater in electronic audio visual products and appliances, the brand continues to fight for consumer justice in bringing the lowest possible prices to consumers.
HIFI Corp has cemented its position in this market as a national chain focussed on six main categories;
As the Low Price champion, HIFI Corp has strategically positioned itself to save the consumer money. The company has updated its identity in line with this new positioning. This has included a new small store design that makes shopping at HIFI Corp a great experience and also shortening the name HIFI Corporation to HIFI Corp to mirror the new focus, and adopting a new brand promise.
HI-FI Corporation was most commonly referred to by customers and staff as HI-FI Corp, so it made sense to shorten the name, which also more accurately reflects the down-to-earth and approachable brand that it is. The new logo carries the same progressive yet approachable look and feel. The logo simply evolved the identity to ensure it could live in a high-street brand environment.
HIFI Corp developed a new brand promise – “Why Shop anywhere else” – which demonstrates our commitment to offering customers prices that they would not find elsewhere. “Why Shop anywhere else” means we truly understand our customers’ needs and our products, we offer value for money and affordable payment options; and with this in mind, we ask the question “Why shop anywhere else?”
All HIFI Cop stores will eventually reflect the rebrand, with new smaller stores supporting the new positioning. To this end stores will offer an easily navigable, uncluttered experience, with informative knowledgeable staff contributing towards empowering customers. The first exciting new look ‘smaller’ store concept aligns itself to a ‘low cost’ business, further enabling the brand to offer “low prices” and a consistent shopping experience.
The first of the new generation ‘small’ store concept was launched in Atterbury in April 2016 followed by Jabulani, Mamelodi and Mabopane in September 2016.
HIFI Corp currently operates in the RSA, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Swaziland.
