Since the opening of its first phase in November 2012, Lephalale Mall has been a hit.

It has fulfilled a need in the Lephalale community not only for a modern shopping centre, but for a place where people can gather, relax and spend time with their families.

The mall has been well received by the local community, which reflects in its excellent trading figures. As a result, the demand from retailers to take up space has been tremendous. Building on this, the developers – Moolman Group and Uniqon – have embarked on an expansion and redevelopment project that will see the mall transformed from its current 15,800m2 to a regional shopping centre opening with bigger and better brands on Thursday, 26 March 2015.

Construction on Phase 2 commenced in January 2014 and the new phase will open in March 2015. Phase 2 will add over 20,000m2 of GLA to the mall, and over 700 additional parking bays. This will increase the number of shops from 30 to 80 – a sizeable extension. The two current anchor tenants, Game and Checkers, will now be complemented by Pick n Pay, Edgars, Woolworths Food and Textile in the new phase. Cape Union Mart, Trappers, @Home, Ideal, Panarotti’s and Nando’s will all open their first stores in Lephalale in the mall. Other strong national retailers will includeLegit, Foschini, Total Sport, Exact, Markham, Fashion Express and John Craig. The existing Jet and Identity stores will relocate and expand.

In addition to a comprehensive line-up of shops, which will offer customers a wide range of popular brands and everything they expect from fashion, footwear and household to electronics and banking, Lephalale Mall will be the place to be seen with its renewed focus on entertainment. Because of the important role that a centre such as this plays as a social anchor in the community, aspects such as the food court and children’s play area have been given special attention.

The attractive new food court is currently under construction at the Checkers entrance, where restaurants are arranged around a central external courtyard planted with trees. This carries through the theme of the tree which is used in the mall’s logo, and which makes reference to the beautiful surrounding bushveld trees. The food court, with its secluded feel and its water feature accent, will create an oasis-like space which will offer shoppers some respite and encourage them to sit down and relax in the heat of the day.

The mall is situated on the corner of Nelson Mandela and Chris Hani Avenues in Onverwacht, Lephalale (formerly Ellisras). Its trading hours are: Mondays to Fridays: 09:00 to 18:00; Saturdays: 09:00 to 17:00; and Sundays and Public Holidays: 09:00 to 15:00.
