Pearl Properties Weighs Heavily on Strategic Business Decisions for Continued Success, in African Business Review

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 29, 2012) - Pearl Properties, one of Zimbabwe's leading property companies, is currently busy in the process of refurbishing one of its major shopping centres, located in Harare's affluent suburbs. The tenant mix includes a major South African retailer, Pick n Pay which is in a strategic alliance with one of Zimbabwe's main retailers, TM Supermarket.

"We are expanding the supermarket; increasing its size and volume. In addition we are enclosing the mall so that people can shop during the rainy season," notes Francis Nyambiri, Pearl Properties' Managing Director. "We are also expanding the car park and at the end of the refurbishment we are likely to have spent about US$1.5 million."

Every investment and project Pearl Properties embarks upon is underpinned by strategic intentions and emotions are not allowed to get in the way of business decisions. "We are not emotionally tied to any of our properties," cites Nyambiri. "We look at them as a business -- if they are performing well we keep them, if not, we look at ways to make sure they start performing."
