Where To Buy Winter Essentials For Kids During Lockdown Level 4

Can you feel the nip in the air? Winter is on its way and now is the perfect time to stock up on fleece jackets, cute jumpers and warm blankets for the little ones. Here's where you can do winter shopping for your baby during level 4 lockdown. 


PEP Stores

PEP stores are the ultimate budget-friendly baby and children’s clothing outlet. During these difficult financial times, a trip to your nearest PEP is probably your best bet for finding affordable, yet durable winter clothing for the little ones. Their range includes character t-shirts for boys and girls, priced at *R80 for two, so your Spider-Man or Princess Elsa in the making can look their best and fit in with all the cool kids.

Please note that PEP stores have advised parents not to bring their children to the store with them. Rather measure your kiddies at home and perhaps purchase their clothing in a size larger than normal. Returns may be limited on certain items, as well.
