Leading names in local and international retail will add even more shopping variety to the 75,000sqm super-regional Mall of the North in Polokwane, Limpopo


International fashion brand shops from Diesel, Levi’s, Skechers, Fabiani and Cotton On will soon open at Mall of the North. The original, natural and ethical beauty brand The Body Shop will also introduce a new store. Telkom is adding a flagship 8ta shop. Introducing more choice to its menu, Mall of the North will add a flagship Panarottis and, hitting the sweet spot, Cups & Cones Frozen Yoghurt and Ice Cream.

The Mall of the North, which opened in April 2011, is jointly owned by JSE-listed Resilient Property Income Fund, Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment, and Moolman Group.

“Mall of the North is producing healthy and growing trade. It recorded exceptional performance during its first year and continues to receive attention from retailers seeking to open stores at the mall,” says Johann Kriek of Resilient Property Income Fund.

Driving its performance is its exceptional retail mix of 180 shops with anchor retailers including Pick n Pay, Checkers, Edgars, Woolworths and Game, as well as a Ster-Kinekor cinema complex. It combines vast retail variety with regular grocery shopping and features a prominent fashion factor.

Hans Bitter of The Foschini Group (TFG) explains that Fabiani – the latest brand to join TFG – makes its entry into the Mall of the North on the upper level, near Entrance 4.

“Fabiani is found at upmarket malls like Canal Walk, Sandton City and Gateway,” notes Bitter. “The confidence Fabiani has displayed in committing to Mall of the North is indicative of how TFG is trading out of its other brands present in the centre.”
Fabiani, and the other top-notch new retailers to join Mall of the North, will refine and strengthen its offering, boosting its popularity even further.

Paul Gerard of Flanagan & Gerard Property Development & Investment explains that to ensure Mall of the North continues to meet shopper needs, its tenant mix is constantly monitored against shopper trends. “This allows us to innovate and improve, to give our customers a complete experience.”

While the new retailers will bring the centre in line with the latest shopper demands, Gerard notes the owners are considering several extra changes to take the centre into the future.
