"My grandfather was Louis Jacobs. He spoke very little English, was of Lithuanian descent. A shoemaker by trade. My father did his trade in the clothing industry as a machinist of sorts. He later joined his father and started selling factory rejects in 1961. The first factory shop in Cape Town! The business was renamed in 1962 to The Reject King and became an icon in the 60's through to the 2000's. The first memory of the cabinets in our shop was in 1948. My father bought them from auctions and liquidation sales."
