The early years at Clicks
The photograph was taken in 1976 in our Plein Street Store Branch 104. From left to right Tony Gordon (Manager), Jane Abrahams (Locker Controller) and me (Assistant Manager). The store opened in the latter part of 1969 and was the 4th Clicks store to be opened. The branch was situated near the houses of parliament and enjoyed the support of the country's many top dignitaries and members of parliament.

When I was appointed as a Buyer in 1983, the process was rather quite simple; Mr. Goldin called me to his office, congratulated me and said, “The three most important tasks of a good Buyer are 1) ask 2) ask and 3) ask”. He explained what he meant, the Buyer’s job was to ask and get the best deals, prices, trading terms, advertising allowance, store opening specials, price increase extensions and so on. Mr Goldin then said to me “If You Don’t Ask, You Don’t Get.”  http://mc1a.wordpress.com/

Jack was a very dignified, honourable and always a man of his word. I remember when I was transferred to Worcester as Store Manager and given ONE day to make up my mind. I went to see Jack and he assured me that I would return to Cape Town after a year. His word was his bond. After a year my gran enquired when I would be returning to Cape Town and true enough within a short while I was back in town. Read more on http://mc1a.wordpress.com/
