The fresh and modern Middelburg Mall in Mpumalanga’s fastest growing town is expanding to open its second phase on 25 September 2014. 

Middelburg MallOwned by Flanagan & Gerard Property Investments and Moolman Group, construction of the R180 million extension will begin on 1 September 2013. It will add 12,000sqm of prime retail space to accommodate several leading retailers that have been hunting for space in this popular mall for some time now.

Patrick Flanagan of Flanagan & Gerard says: "The Middleburg Mall's second phase responds to its successful performance, reflected in growing consumer support and substantial demand for space from retailers that weren't included in the original development."

Middelburg Mall opened in April last year. In June 2013, Middelburg Mall recorded growth in shoppers of 10% year-on-year.

Middelburg Mall Phase Two will be anchored by a 3,750sqm Spar with a 250sqm Tops at Spar. It will also feature a 800sqm Ackermans.

The extension adds to the overall retail variety at the mall and introduces four first-time retailers to Middelburg. Dis-Chem will open in 1,500sqm store and Mr Price Sport will welcome shoppers in a 700sqm store. Popular Australian retail brands Cotton On and Typo will respectively bring shoppers fresh fashion in a 400sqm store and quirky stationery and gifts in 140sqm.

The extension will link seamlessly with all the convenience of 90 retails already at Middelburg Mall, including leading South African grocery and department stores Checkers, Woolworths, Edgars, Pick n Pay and Game, as well as a full house of local banks.

Moolman Group's Jannie Moolman notes the larger retail offering at Middelburg Mall will be supported by more services, like parking, ensuring customers continue to enjoy a pleasant, convenient and complete shopping experience.

Easy access to Middelburg Mall has always been a strong advantage for its customers. The landmark shopping centre is right off the N4 highway, and easy to reach from both the Fontein Street and Tswelopele Avenue off-ramps.

Middelburg Mall Centre Manager Mike Tammadge says: "The new phase means even more shopping under one roof at Middelburg Mall. After the expansion, the mall will total 55 500sqm of quality retail variety and it will open in time for next year's festive season, with minimal disruption."
