CANAL WALK LAUNCHES CLICK-PARK AND-COLLECT WITH PARGO

Canal Walk Shopping Centre has boosted its customer services with a new click-park and-collect pickup point.  You can now place online orders with multiple Canal Walk retailers, and effortlessly collect their shopping from a dedicated drive-through collection point. Canal Walk’s newest service is powered in partnership with Pargo, a leading South African click-and-collect service provider.

The Canal Walk facility, which is at Entrance 7, Shop 595, will be tested with customers for an initial six-month period, starting in November.

The seamless service lets customers place an online order with the mall’s participating retail stores. Shoppers will receive SMS and email notifications in order to track their shopping throughout its journey, right up until it is ready for collection. They can then select the collection time that is most convenient for them, from 9am to 9pm daily. Then, they can park, collect their package from the store outside Entrance 7 and enjoy their purchase.

STARBUCKS OPENS FIRST STORE IN CAPE TOWN

Cape Town has joined the list of cities around the world in which you will find a Starbucks store, courtesy of its newly opened store in Canal Walk – the first of six to open in the coming weeks.

In a first for Starbucks, Capetonians who had pre-booked their spot to be among the first to experience Starbucks on home soil were treated to an exclusive first taste of high-quality arabica coffee. With Covid restrictions in mind and to ensure the safety of customers, the store opened with four days of slots available for fans to pre-book their introduction to Starbucks.

Fans quickly snapped up available slots for opening day on 19 November, and 40 customers per half hour session got to hear about the craftsmanship and ethical sourcing that goes into each beverage directly from the new baristas, known as Starbucks partners.
