Who Are We....

The shop is located at Pringle Bay, a beautiful village of about 1000 permanent residents on the Overberg coast.

This seaside village is a popular weekend get-a-way and holiday season destination. The area is known for its tranquil, almost crime-free ambiance that is not too far away from urban areas. Cape Town is a one-hour and Somerset West thirty minutes drive away.

The founders (Pink Family) purchased the plot in 2002 and started the construction of the building. While the family resided upstairs the Country shop was set up as a general dealer. They have been trading for more than 10 years, meeting the needs of the local community. Now the founders have reached the state that they wanted to enjoy their retirement.

After a long time of trying to settle in the Overberg area we finally got the opportunity to take over the business in 2014. We have a new fresh start of the existing business with the emphasis on a pleasant local country shop. We still be general dealer and we try to convert it a little more into a pleasant environment with extension on the coffee corner, reading table, art expositions, etc.


The shop and coffee corner are located on the ground floor with 176 m2, also on the ground floor there is a 30 sq.m shop sublet. The upper level of the shop is half-sectioned and sublet to a 2nd hand book retailer.

We hope that you enjoy your stay at the shop and will visit again soon.
