Pietermaritzburg, SA – Our turnover is up on last year – I estimate by between 10% and 15% – but I think our profitability is much the same.
I think the reason for the increase has simply been that we’ve introduced some cheaper lines. Essentially, we’ve added some synthetic upper women’s footwear, where we previously used leather only. Men’s footwear is still the bigger part of the business, and that’s all still leather.
I think things are improving, and I’m feeling quite positive. I think there’s light at the end of the tunnel. – [+27 (0)33 387 6738, tombass@lantic.net]
