TFG is a diverse group with a portfolio of 28 leading fashion retail brands across various lifestyle and merchandise categories. We are one of the foremost independent chain-store groups in South Africa. The company was established in 1924 and has been listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) in the general retailers sector since 1941. TFG has recently been included in the JSE Top 40, an index of the 40 largest companies listed on the JSE.
Our retail brands offer clothing, jewellery, cellphones, accessories, cosmetics, sporting and outdoor apparel and equipment, and homeware and furniture from value to upper market segments.
The majority of our turnover is in the form of cash sales to customers, with the balance being from our own in-house credit offering. Currently, credit is offered to our customers in South Africa as well as in Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho and Swaziland/Eswatini. In addition to retail turnover, revenue is also generated from interest received on customers’ store cards and through various value-added services, available to our TFG Africa customers.
South Africa and Namibia are TFG Africa’s most significant markets, with the United Kingdom, including Ireland, being the most significant market for TFG London. TFG Australia is focused on Australia and New Zealand. Refer to Our Footprint for a graphical representation of our outlet locations as well as the respective geographic contributions to turnover.

In TFG Africa, our manufacturing capabilities, which coordinates production through our own factories and various independent cut, make and trim (CMT) factories, provide the Group with significant quick response capabilities, which is a key differentiator for the Group.

Our corporate brand essence
Our corporate brand essence is captured in the word: OPPORTUNITY. We create opportunities for our customers, employees and community in the following ways:
- For our customers, it’s the opportunity to shop conveniently across a range of quality brands, online
or in our stores. Our TFG Africa customers have the opportunity to shop using one card, be rewarded and gain access to unique experiences and products.
- TFG has a unique multi-brand and multi-function Group structure that creates career opportunities in an environment of support, collaboration and respect. We believe that a positive corporate culture translates directly to a positive customer experience and is therefore fundamental to achieving success.
- In TFG Africa, through our sustainability initiatives, we create opportunities for local supply chain development, by focusing on increasing capacity, productivity and competitiveness of local design and manufacturing. By driving environment efficiency, in particular water conservation and recycling, we will help to shape a better future for all. Our mantra – Educate to Empower – will uplift the local communities in which we operate.
