“The Lifestyle Centre family wishes all our customers happy holidays!” said Rencken. “While this year has thankfully seen no lockdowns, riots or floods, it has been characterised by a tough economic environment, high interest rates, loadshedding and massive pressure for the consumer. Lifestyle Centre is an integral part of Ballito and our focus this year has been to build on what we have through focusing on the detail, the customer experience, innovation and new offerings. We have worked hard at creating some festive cheer and hope that our customers will be able to celebrate in style and enjoy Christmas, the Ballito way, with us over this holiday period.”
