Liberty Two Degrees and Liberty Group Limited’s Eastgate Shopping Centre is preparing to welcome three major retail brands this month.
“The closure of Stuttafords provided an opportunity to bring in some exciting new stores that the centre could not previously accommodate. It is an exciting time for Eastgate as we prepare for the launch of our new tenants this upcoming month” comments Carmen Collison, Liberty Two Degrees‟ Asset Management Executive for Eastgate Shopping Centre.
The all new Mr Price flagship store will occupy the most significant part of the 3 255 square meters of the ex-Stuttafords space with global fashion retailer, H&M will make its entrance with a 2 518 square meter store. Dischem will occupy the remaining 1 890 square meters of space.
“Both Dis-Chem and Mr Price are proudly South African brands with expansive footprints across the country and will bring a fresh dynamic to our existing local tenant mix. Along with this, the introduction of H&M in Eastgate is sure to answer to the demand of our shoppers for the inclusion of international retailers in the mall. The opening of these three stores aligns with Liberty Two Degrees’ strategy of continuously improving the customers shopping experience by providing more freedom of choice to our clients” adds Collison.
“Our refurbishment programme is almost complete, our tenant mix is better than ever, which aligns to our focus of improving our customer experience. Watch it all come together at Eastgate Shopping Centre as it continues to innovate and reinvent itself to stay ahead of the South African retail curve” Collison concludes.
