The French chain store has just announced an expansion programme in Africa, through franchises given to local operators. This expansion plan makes provision for the opening of stores in countries such as Tunisia, Morocco, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire and Senegal.
According to Pierre Havransart, International Development Manager for Tati, the launch of the stores of this French distributor in Senegal, Côte d'Ivoire and Cameroon should take place during the first half of 2017.
In Cameroon, the pink and white checkered brand will actually be making a comeback, after a brief appearance in the 90's. Indeed, after some years of activities punctuated by repeated sales, the Tati shop built over 1,200 m2 on the Ahmadou Ahidjo Boulevard in the Akwa borough, in Douala, had to close on 31 January 2004 due to difficulties at the parent company.
