Dorpsmeent Centre, a central community centre for shopping and leisure to many in the Strand area, has undergone a major refurbishment and facelift to rejuvenate its life and offerings to all its customers that frequent the centre on a regular basis.

Dorpsmeent CentreThe Centre will be re-launched on 6th December and renamed "Strand Square". Over R6 million has been spent on the refurbishment, which entailed a 9 phase approach to the upgrade.

Work commenced on 29 July 2013 and included a facelift to the entrance façade of the building, a complete makeover of ablution facilities, slated ceilings throughout the arcade area, re-tiling of the common areas as well as new shop fronts for most of the shops that have not been upgraded.

"The re-launch will be the official unveiling of a more modern, bright and inviting Centre," says Adnan Chogle', senior property manager for FPG Group , owners of Strand Square. "Today, shoppers expect more than just great stores in a retail development. While the new Strand Square will boast all of FPG Group core concepts, we have ensured our efforts and resources are spent in enhancing a holistic shopping experience – from convenient access, ample parking and open, shopper friendly spaces to modernised common walkways, better facilities and of course, putting the safety of our shoppers first."

Strand Square is positioned to attract a wider target market with more disposable income, from the immediate catchment area. The retail mix offers convenience and choice to customers including national tenants such as Pick 'n Pay, Wimpy, Pep, Old Mutual, Crazy Store and PnA - who have all welcomed the refurbishment to the Centre.

"Strand Square enjoys exceptional visibility given its unique location just off the R44 (corner of Mills and Fagan street), its close proximity to the railway station, Police station, beach as well as local municipality", concludes Chogle'.
