Woermann Brock banks with Standard for 100 years

Unbelievable as it may seem, it was revealed earlier this week that local retailer Woermann Brock has been an uninterrupted Standard Bank client for five scores.

Standard Bank celebrated its Namibian centenary on Tuesday with lots of aplomb and splendour. The bank used the celebrations not only to fly its own flag but also to honour and acknowledge those customers that have been banking with them for the longest time.
