WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT PEP STORES

IMG_4485-1.PNG

Have you ever come across these stores with bold ‘Pep’ logos littered everywhere across major cities
Nigeria and wondered what they offered? I, for one, thought that they were some sort of tax collection agency (silly me😄!) until I visited one a few days ago, and boy, was I surprised.

I not only discovered that these stores offer awesome deals on fashion (clothing, shoes, fashion accessories) and household items, but also structure a payment plan for regular customers to purchase items, accept returns with 100% money back policies and secure small loans for customers ( not applicable to Nigerian Pep stores😢.)

Enough of my babbling😊. Here is everything you need to know about Pep stores and why you should shop with them if you are a bargain-hunter or budget fashionista.

What is a PEP store?
