Middelburg Mall, one of Mpumalanga’s leading shopping destinations, is expanding to open its second phase in time for Christmas trading on 18 October 2014.
Construction of the R200 million extension to the mall is already well underway and will result in an additional 12,000sqm of prime retail space to accommodate more of South Africa’s top retailers.
Since opening in 2012, Middelburg Mall has grown substantially in popularity, and in 2013 recorded a growth in shoppers of 10% year-on-year. The mall has also been a welcome catalyst for further growth in Middleburg’s bourgeoning development node as several new buildings have recently been developed and businesses opened in the precinct.
Owned by Flanagan & Gerard Property Investments and the Moolman Group, phase two of the mall will be anchored by a 3,750sqm Spar with a 250sqm Tops at Spar. It will also feature an 800sqm Ackermans. Upon completion of Middelburg Mall’s second phase, shoppers can look forward to a fresh mix of retail options, which will include a 1,500sqm DisChem and Mr Price Sport’s 700sqm store. Well-known Australian brands Cotton On and Typo will also make their much-anticipated debut in Middelburg, offering the latest trends in fashion and accessories.
Patrick Flanagan of Flanagan & Gerard says that Middelburg Mall’s second phase is a direct response to its successful performance, which is reflected in growing consumer support as well as the substantial demand for space from retailers that weren’t included in the original development.
Moolman Group’s Jannie Moolman adds that the larger retail offering at Middelburg Mall will ensure customers continue to enjoy a pleasant, convenient and seamless shopping experience.
With over 90 retailers already at Middelburg Mall, including Woolworths, Edgars, Game and Musica, as well as an array of food and banking options, the new phase will incorporate even more quality retail under one roof.
Middelburg Mall is ideally situated just off the N4 highway and is easily accessible from the Fontein Street and Tswelopele off-ramps. The expansion will see minimal disruption in time for shoppers to indulge in festive season shopping.
