CNA is one of the oldest retail brands in Southern Africa having commenced trading in 1896, which makes CNA an incredible 109 years old. Edcon, one of Southern Africa's leading retailers, acquired CNA in November 2002. Edcon consists of the Department Stores Division (Edgars, Boardmans, Prato, Red Square & CNA) and the Discount Division (Jet, Jet Mart & Legit). As a result of this, all Edgars and Jet account holders can now use their cards in CNA to purchase on credit and benefit from the easy payment terms on offer.
CNA provide our customers with books, music, stationery, magazines, toys, photographic equipment, cards, gifting solutions, movies, computer consumables, communications facilitation products and interactive products in an easy to shop environment.
CNA is a retail leader in the enablement of the people of Southern Africa through the acquisition of knowledge. We do this by constantly providing a wide range of reading, writing, learning, listening and interacting consumables.
CNA is positioned as the destination for latest releases and most wanted products that are a combination of both nationally and internationally recognised brands and exceptional value house brands. CNA stocks brands like Kodak, Fuji, Pentax, Canon, Parker, Pentel, Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson & Playstation.
"Get it First" means that we make many things possible through the acquisition of knowledge and the enrichment of peoples lives. CNA's unique offering includes a wide range of products, that in combination, are not available from any other retailer. We offer our customers of all ages an entertainment and lifestyle experience like no other.
