Orange announced today (13 June 2013) that it has partnered with Nashua Mobile to open its first retail outlets in South Africa. These will be the first such stores outside of Orange’s telecommunication operations footprint.

Orange already has an e-commerce store and an online portal for the South African market, and the company said that a retail footprint was the next logical step.

The first Nashua Mobile stores with Orange products will be in Sandton City in Johannesburg, Brooklyn Mall in Pretoria, and Icon Centre and Canal Walk in Cape Town.

All products will also be available through the online store for travellers not passing through these areas.
