Alex Mall can confirm that two staff members from one of our anchor tenants, Pick ‘n Pay, have tested positive for Covid-19.


The store is currently being thoroughly sanitised and all the necessary protocols and procedures are being followed. It will reopen for trade as soon as all parties agree it is safe to do so, most likely by midday on Monday 20 April. 

We have been in contact with the relevant senior management at Pick ‘n Pay and would like to commend them for the swift, decisive action they have taken both concerning the well-being of their staff and of the community that may have been affected.

They have confirmed they will be screening, testing and, if necessary, isolating staff members that may have come into contact with those that have already tested positive. 

Alex Mall is open for trade and remains committed to stringent hygiene practices for both the mall and our shoppers. Strict queuing, social distancing and hand washing protocols remain in place to protect our shoppers from potential exposure to Covid-19. 

In a bid to further protect our community, dedicated shopping hours have been set aside for our elderly, disabled and grant beneficiaries and we have recently launched #MasksforGood.

This initiative will see 26,000 reusable, washable medical cloth masks donated to our shoppers in a bid to protect those that need it most.
