The first shopping mall in South Africa, The World Mall, opened in 1989, with a focus on small, local businesses and consumers.
But it has since evolved into an attraction for visitors, shoppers and locals alike, with retail outlets ranging from small boutiques to major brands like Burberry, Adidas and Gap.
Now, the mall is opening its doors to the public for the first time, to promote its new brand of shopping, with some of the most unique shopping experiences in the world.
South Africa’s malls are not just a place for locals to buy and shop, they are also home to some of South Africa’s most popular cultural institutions and art galleries, including the National Museum of South African Art, the Nelson Mandela Museum, the University of Cape Town’s South African Museum and the Art Institute of South America.
“Our goal is to create a new shopping mall that is a little bit more inclusive, with shops that cater to different people and different tastes, and it will be an opportunity for all people to experience this place,” said Mall Manager Simon Lefebvre.
The World Mall has already received a lot of attention from visitors and locals, with more than 10 million visitors visiting during the opening weekend, according to the Mall.
In an effort to showcase its new storefront, the Mall also added a new “store” area, the “Lift” section.
“We wanted to give people a better experience with the new shopping experience, to make the experience more comfortable,” said Lefemvre.
The lift section has been specially designed with a range of seating options and features including a seating area for up to 20 people, two large tables, a large display space and two large chairs.
The World’s largest mall, The National Museum, has also opened its doors, which has been opened to the general public for just two days.
“The new museum has been designed to be the largest, most inclusive, and interactive museum in the city, and is also the best experience for our guests,” said curator of the museum, Mabel Ndaba.
“It will be a wonderful place for all of our guests, whether they are visiting from the airport, a visiting tourist, or just to have a great time.”
In the South African market, the South African Standard Exchange is also opening its first new store on Monday, and will be the first store in the country to accept bitcoin and other digital currencies, according to its website.
More than 40,000 shoppers have already visited The Standard Exchange on their way to the mall, with the Market House being the busiest.
In addition to offering its unique shopping experience and the possibility of bitcoin payments, The Standard also offers a range, from clothing, jewellery, handbags, handbag accessories, watches and more, as well as food, coffee and drink.
South Africa has become one of the fastest growing economies in the developed world in recent years, with gross domestic product (GDP) growing at an average annual rate of 3.2% between 2012 and 2017.
It is also one of only three countries in the continent where the number of retail stores is growing.
