OK Power Express
Established in 2000, OK Power Express is a new-age retail brand, offering a fresh concept in retailing, specializing in home entertainment, cellphones, base sets, loose rugs and all major and domestic appliances.
Power Express Stores offer the lowest prices on all the top brands, with many easy finance options.
In 1927, Johannesburg's shopping hub consisted of four blocks along the west side of Eloff Street above Pritchard Street. So it was a risk of major proportions when two young upstarts, Michael Miller and Sam Cohen, opened a store a full block south of Pritchard Street, and on the wrong side of the road.
They called it OK Bazaars.
OK Bazaars was an instant success, and expanded rapidly throughout South Africa, becoming one of our most trusted and loved household names.
In 1929 the business was listed as a public company on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. And by 1967, the OK Bazaars had opened 100 stores.
In 1973 South African Breweries bought a major share of the Group, growing the company even further.
In 1996 the Group divisionalised the various business segments and created a stand-alone brand for the Furniture Department - OK Furniture. At the same time, the credit, hire purchase and insurance functions were placed in a newly formed division called Rainbow Finance.
However, rapid expansion of competitors in the 80's and 90's eroded the OK Supermarket’s market share and in 1997, South African Breweries sold the OK Group to Shoprite Checkers. All Stores underwent refurbishment and upgrades to become one of the best looking retailers in the country.
The Group continues to embrace the very best in technology and with both the electronic catalogue system and website, can provide Customers with a far wider choice and greater convenience.
Our goal and vision remain steadfast in that we consistently strive to be the leading competitively priced furniture, appliance, and home entertainment retailer in Africa. We regularly improve our product ranges and offerings, have the best looking Stores, deliver high levels of Customer Service excellence, continue to open as many new stores as possible, provide ongoing staff training and development, cultivate excellent Supplier relationships, maintain a low operating cost base and uplift local Communities, where possible.
