TNF_Canal_Walk_PR

The first ever concept store by The North Face® in South Africa will be opening its doors to the public on 1st April, 2014 at the popular Canal Walk shopping centre in Cape Town.

As the premium outdoor brand gears up to re-launch in the South African outdoor and adventure market under distributors Slam Industries, consumers will now have the opportunity to source premium high tech apparel and equipment, often only seen on the high streets of big cities in Europe and North America or the peaks of the Alps and Himalaya.

The North Face® is breaking new ground and creating pioneering designs that set industry standard. Innovation, function, aesthetic, fit and finish – these are the five integral components of every single product The North Face® engineers. Product categories such as the Summit Series and Flight Series are designed and tested by members of our athlete team, and engineered using knowledge gained from their first-hand experience in the field.

“This is a very exciting time for everyone involved” said Blake Raubenheimer, Brand Director of Slam Industries. “The North Face® is such an iconic outdoor brand and boasts an incredibly rich and proud heritage. The outstanding brand pedigree and unbelievable product offering will allow us to position The North Face® at the very apex of the outdoor market across Southern Africa.”

Slam Industries will debut the FW’14 line, offering extensive technical and lifestyle product offerings that incorporate categories The North Face® has not offered in South Africa before, including trail running, footwear, equipment collections and the Summit Series collection, the very pinnacle of the product hierarchy.

The Canal Walk store will be followed with a store opening in Menlyn, Pretoria on the 1st May.

We are excited to announce that Cashtime Life has partnered with SkyRoomLive to stream live Teargas’ performance at the AXECESS concert headlined by US rapper Big Sean. The stream will be on our site, http://cashtimelife.com/streaming/

Creating such opportunities helps us get closer to our vision of not only being at the forefront of the culture but also shifting and pushing the culture forward. As Cashtime Life, this leap forward represents the spirit and vision of a young black company that is willing to think global and play alongside international acts and companies. The internet is a great equalizer and we are here to take full advantage of the platform it provides as we embark on this journey to build our artists into solid household brands. We continually look at traditional and non-traditional opportunities to ensure that we stay innovative in our approach as new-age company.

“Cashtime Life is a partnership-oriented platform where we cherish the idea of working with (and not for) the artists we deal with. We have tailored our imprint according to the new and revolutionary ways of selling/distributing music and how today’s enterprising artists prefer being in control of their material and brands. On the other end, corporations are looking for innovative ways to play within the music space which is where Cashtime Life comes in as the link between both spheres.” – K.O

Teargas will hit the stage at 8:35pm on Saturday, 1 Feb. If you are not at the concert itself then make sure to catch the live broadcast on http://cashtimelife.com/streaming/
