100 MRP Sport Stores and Still Going Strong!


We did it! On Thursday, 28th September, we officially open the doors of our 100th MRP Sport store at Cornubia Shopping Mall in Mt. Edgecombe, and we couldn’t be prouder!


MRP Sport’s journey started just over 11 years ago, when the very first store opened its doors in Boksburg, Gauteng. Since then, 99 more booming stores have opened theirs. How did we get here? With YOU! To every single shopper, runner and enthusiast of all things outdoors and active, a massive thank-you for 11 years of winning!


As a team, we’ve achieved great things since 2006, the most notable of which is the launch of our online store, – where shoppers can browse and shop for gear in just a few clicks. Our next big win? The launch of the MRP Sport app, which will be up and running in just a few days’ time. Watch this space for updates!


But it doesn’t stop here! Let’s see what wins and adventures our infinite future holds, and together, let’s keep going for gold!
