ARC has launched as a specialized, omni-channel beauty destination that will bring South Africans, the most-coveted luxury brands in fragrance, makeup and skincare.
April 2021 sees the official launch of the e-Commerce store, with physical stores rolling out nationwide throughout the year. Starting with Sandton City in June, ARC will then open its doors at Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront in September and Gateway, Durban will be early 2022.
Customers can look forward to shopping an ever-growing list of their favourite brands including cult- followed MAC, Estée Lauder, Dermalogica and Benefit, local-gems like SKOON., Skin Creamery and Suki Suki and niche-finds like Molton Brown, BlackUp and Lottie London.
Born from the belief that the world would be a more beautiful place if we embrace uniqueness and celebrate individuality, ARC’s goal is to be more inclusive and truly representative of our country, garnering a community of diverse voices sharing experiences and personal beauty routines that are anchored in South Africa.
“There is no doubt that 2020 and covid-19 has been a challenging time for us all, but we’ve turned it in to a time of innovation and creativity. We are the first dedicated beauty retailer to open in South Africa and will have the widest range of luxury brands by the end of this year. ARC aims to be the leading digital omnichannel beauty company, starting this month with the launch of our online store” – Marketing Executive Kelly Fung
ARC is launching with an affiliate partnership with Clicks ClubCard, South Africa’s favourite and most- used retail loyalty program, already in place.
The partnership offers all new and existing members even more rewards with the benefit of 10% cashback on their ClubCard for their first purchase and an ongoing 6% cashback, thereafter.
“We are proud to be welcoming Clicks ClubCard members, as we launch. We are certain that this is a winning affiliate partnership that will introduce the ARC brand to Clicks customers whilst then being able to reward customers with cashback via the Club Card.” – Kelly Fung
With a vision to responsibly deliver the beauty of tomorrow, today, ARC is on a journey to ensure industry-leading service, innovative-thinking and ultimately kickstart a new kind of beauty conversation, that demands transparency and insists upon inclusivity – all the while delivering self-care straight to your door.
ARC, already showing they are ahead of the curve.
