'Steinhoff-controlled Pepkor failed to snuff Mr Tekkie'
Pepkor is going to keep on coming, and we’re going to keep on standing our ground.Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie
Steinhoff-controlled Pepkor has failed in its attempt to restrain five of Mr Tekkie’s senior executives – including Tekkie Town founder Braam van Huyssteen - from any involvement in retail.
Steinhoff, through Pepkor, came to the court wanting to bully a group of individuals into submission. They failed comprehensively.Bernard Mostert, Mr Tekkie
Three Mr Tekkie stores started trading in October, and the plan is to open an additional 12 stores later this month.
Mostert, along with Van Huyssteen and others, founded Mr Tekkie after the loss of their interest in Tekkie Town due to the collapse of Steinhoff.
