Twin City’s Mompati Mall is in the final stretch of construction as it prepares for its grand opening on 26 October, when Vryburg residents will enjoy a brand-new shopping experience.

The new 22 700m2 centre will open its doors with more than 60 stores to cater for everyone in this community.

Of these stores, 95% have already confirmed their presence in this new North West Province retail offering, with three months to go until opening.  They represent some of South Africa’s most-loved brands, including Shoprite, Spar, Mr Price, Truworths, Foschini, Pep, Clicks, Wimpy, and McDonalds.

Twin City prides itself on creating quality, safe, family-centred shopping environments with broad appeal.

This one-stop, WiFi-equipped shopping delight, named after local struggle icon Dr Ruth Mompati, is set to be another jewel in Twin City’s high-quality shopping centre portfolio, which are prized assets in their communities.

Contributing positively to communities in the long term is a signature of the shopping centres created by Twin City.  In addition to its consumer offerings, the mall is expected to create around 750 full-time jobs once completed.

As part of this development, Twin City has partnered with The Mompati Foundation to identify high-impact community projects. This is another positive impact that the Twin City Foundation, which focuses on Early Childhood Development (ECD), is making on the community.

“As the opening of Mompati Mall draws nearer, excitement is building, and we are looking forward to introducing a new retail landscape to Vryburg, making a positive contribution to this wonderful community and giving them a space where they belong,” says Johan van Wyk, Director of New Business at Twin City.

Mompati Mall is located near the CBD, opposite the Vryburg sports grounds. It also offers good access for pedestrians, consumers travelling by car and taxi commuters.

“Mompati Mall will harness the economic power of the CBD and provide a shopping experience with an upmarket design that can stand proudly next to any modern mall found across South Africa’s metropolitan areas,” says van Wyk.

The single-level centre, designed by Leon Jacobs Architects and being led in construction by the main contractor NJW, has resulted in improvements to the surrounding roads and all bulk services.

Van Wyk also notes that it will have a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant to produce clean, green energy, reduce strain on the national grid and help ensure that customers can continue to enjoy the shopping experience during load shedding.

Other confirmed tenants opening at Mompati Mall include West Pack Lifestyle, Ackermans, Capitec, Nedbank, FNB, Specsavers, Torga Optical, Exact, Foschini, Identity, Jet, Jet Home, Pep Cell, Pep Home, Sneaker Factory, Totalsports, The Fix, Tekkie Town, Sportscene, Studio 88, Power Fashion, Truworths, Pedros Chicken, Roman’s Pizza and Hungry Lion.
