In early 2012 Andrew Lynch found himself holed up in his dorm room at Rhodes University he harboured a deep dark secret, he needed an Apple iPod Shuffle cable, badly. But he couldn’t understand why, after trolling online forums, e-mailing local suppliers and looking at the lack of well-priced cables online in South Africa, they were so expensive. He was left with one of two choices; either throw away his iPod or start an e-commerce store that sold cables. Weeks of deliberation and the purrs of Lana Del Rey helped him to make the leap, so he started an e-commerce store and began a journey to save millions of South Africans from the pain that he had endured.
And in the aftermath CableKiosk.co.za was born. Not just an online Cable store, we’re a team of geeky, bold 20-somethings out on a mission to offer the most competitively priced high quality cables married to incredible customer service.
