Factory Shopping in Cape Town

Factory Outlets and Factory Shop Expo

Factory Shopping in Cape Town South Africa is easy to do when you know where to go! 

Like many expats who move to Cape Town you might be wondering where to find great deals when shopping for furniture, home appliances and home textiles in the Mother City.

If you don’t want to buy expensive appliances but want to buy the best brands at bargain prices, check out Cape Town's numerous factory stores.
