Huawei has launched their first ever flagship store in South Africa and chose Menlyn Shopping Centre in Pretoria for the honour. The company notes this global flagship store offers more than the Huawei Customer Service Centres that SA Huawei users are familiar with. Not only does it provide technical support and maintenance repairs, but it also sells the full range of Huawei products that are available in South Africa with a “unique consumer experience that is not often seen in SA”.

Huawei Service Stores, as well as Huawei’s new global flagship store in Menlyn Park, offer the following:

  • All phones are guaranteed to be fixed within 2 working days
  • New Battery – R 199
  • Aim for a one-hour turnaround time
  • Screen Repair – R 699
  • Monthly Service Days, where customers can get free screen protectors
  • 24/7 Hotline Support - 0860 86 1111
  • Online Help (
  • Whatsapp 24/7 (061 460 1111)
  • Livechat 24/7
  • Email support (
  • Insurance offerings

Explaining Huawei’s approach when conceptualising the global flagship stores, Likun Zhao, Vice President of HUAWEI Consumer Business Group, Middle East & Africa says, “In the smartphone era, a retail store is not only about products, it is also about an experience. In the future, retail stores will become experience or lifestyle centres, in addition to being shopping centres. They will be spaces where people meet to experience new products, participate in community events, discover new technologies with expert guidance, and enjoy positive experiences. Huawei's global flagship stores showcase Huawei's seamless smart life experience approach to consumer technology. It enables customers from all over the world to experience a broad portfolio of products and understand how they can enjoy a fantastic smart life experience.”
