“It was wonderful to see the centre in its final splendour, and to begin this new exciting chapter with our tenants, loyal customers and friends,” said Olive Ndebele, general manager of the shopping centre.

The launch party was held in the mall’s Central Park, which is planted with picturesque trees and encircled by trendy restaurants, and is the perfect place to enjoy long, warm summer evenings. Guests were entertained by popular musicians and delectable food from Ocean Basket and Hard Rock Café.

Gauteng transport MEC Dr Ismail Vadi lauded the shopping centre for its integral transport facilities and involvement in the Bus Rapid Transport system to commence early next year. Malose Kekana, group CEO of Pareto Holdings, the owners of Menlyn Park Shopping Centre, thanked everyone for making the 500-store mall – now a one-stop destination for all shopping needs and entertainment for the whole family – into a centre to be proud of, while Ndebele was on hand to share all the milestones that were reached through the redevelopment. “We’re so excited to have accomplished this momentous task, and to have turned Menlyn Park Shopping Centre into a place to enjoy all year round,” she said.

For the Christmas season, the mall offers three pop-up gift-wrapping stations, with complimentary snacks, and all proceeds going to the Smile Foundation. Extended shopping hours are 09h00 to 21h00 daily, and 09h00 to 17h00 on public holidays. Menlyn Park Shopping Centre has parking for over 8 200 vehicles.
