Polokwane’s 11 000m2 The Greenery shopping centre opens its doors

The Greenery shopping centre in Polokwane, Limpopo, has officially opened.

Co-owned and developed by the Moolman Group and Networth Group, the 11 000m2 is named in tribute to the old municipal nursery that used to be situated on the site.

With 23 retailers comprising well-known favourites plus a variety of local stores and speciality services, the shopping centre benefits from a prime location at the corners of Grobler, Oost, and Thabo Mbeki Streets.

The centre is an investment that is designed to benefit its community and its environment. More than 300 locals were employed during the construction and development of The Greenery, and more than a third of the project’s value was spent with local subcontractors.

It will be fully operational during load shedding, and energy efficiency is supported by the exclusive use of LED lighting. Given the water scarcity in the province, The Greenery has made water savings a priority, with measures including metered taps in restrooms and tenant shops.

Honouring The Greenery’s roots, the landscapers created a fully indigenous and waterwise planting scheme, which adheres to the water challenges, while offering an abundant and inviting greenery experience.

The architects created a contemporary, timeless design for the centre that allows its tenants to shine. Added to this is a retail tenant mix that is tailored to appeal to local shoppers and meet their daily needs. The Greenery features an impressive line-up of anchor tenants, comprising the latest specification Checkers, Checkers Liquor, Woolworths Food and Woolworths Cellar, Clicks, Meat World, Intercare, and West Pack Lifestyle.

In addition, the tenant line-up includes Woolworths Edit, Pick n Pay Clothing, Spec-Savers, Petzone, Ackermans, Mr Price, Oasis Water, Repair Desk, Seattle Coffee, Debonairs Pizza, RocoMamas, Mugg & Bean and Crazy Store, as well as a convenient Nando’s drive-through, among others.

A highlight of the centre is its food court piazza, which serves as communal gathering point.
