The thriving area of Pinehurst will enter a new era of quality, convenient retail when Pinehurst Shopping Centre officially opens its doors for trading on 5th December 2013.

Pinehurst Shopping CentreThe 7300m² community Centre is anchored by Pick n Pay in a 3,135m² store and features 32 tenants, including a new 1,207m² Food Lovers Market and Wimpy, which will open during the second phase in 2014. Pinehurst Shopping Centre is a first of its kind in the area and is positioned in the epicentre of this leafy community.

"The Centre pays meticulous attention to top design, apt retailer mix and the daily shopping needs of a discerning, expanding community," says Kim Gibson, Group Chief Financial Officer for Garden Cities, owners and developers of Pinehurst Shopping Centre. "Pinehurst Shopping Centre is set to become the dominant retail space in the area and surrounding suburbs. Pinehurst is a strong community with abundant amenities, so naturally we developed the community Shopping Centre as a retail node for its residents."

As it stands, the tenant mix for Pinehurst Shopping Centre includes popular national retailers like Pick n Pay, Pick n Pay Liquor, Food Lovers Market, Wimpy, Crazy Store, Sorbet and Clicks with a cross section of owner operated stores such as Café Del Monte, Blush and Pizza Boys. An array of service offerings on-site include a Postlink,Nedbank ATM, Standard Bank ATM as well as ABSA ATM. Pinehurst Shopping Centre also offers plenty of parking spaces for the many shoppers the Centre will attract.

"The tenancies further our plan of creating a convenient, safe and fun place for shoppers to meet, offering a little something for everyone. We hope that the residents of Pinehurst will be satisfied with the variety of tenants in our Shopping Centre and we look forward to providing additional shopping choices," says Gibson. The Pinehurst Shopping Centre was designed primarily to provide easy shopping access with more than adequate parking. Although an open, airy atmosphere with natural light and ventilation has been created in keeping with the semi-rural environment, a sheltering roof structure mitigates the effects of the Cape's variable weather, and a central court provides for open restaurants and a play area.

Bentel Architects, the designers of Pinehurst Shopping Centre, has chosen to incorporate the beautiful surroundings of the area into the innovative design. Generous natural light covering the internal spaces and external walkways will ensure a fully functional design even in the worst type of Cape Town weather. Specific focus has been placed on the comfort of shoppers, especially the disabled as well as parents with children.

A ribbon cutting on 5th December is planned to inaugurate the community shopping centre to the general public.
