1 000 000 shoppers a month can’t be wrong.
Liberty Promenade, situated in the heart of Mitchells Plain, has grown in size and stature since we first opened doors in November 2003. It’s a tale of optimism and hard work that shares much synergy with this community oriented centre. Eight years ago in November we tested the market with a reasonable 42 000 m2 of retail space but the centre’s instant success made it clear that it would need rapid expansion. By September the following year a second phase of the development had been completed, adding a further 11 000m2.
In 2009 we embarked on a R450 million extension and refurbishment project to include an exciting, new entertainment wing and food court. The extension added approximately 24 000 m2 - or the size of five football fields - to Liberty Promenade, making it the second largest shopping centre in the Western Cape. The new Entertainment Wing includes eight Ster-Kinekor cinemas and a Superbowl bowling complex.
The new and improved Food Court boasts popular eateries such as Fisherman’s Lane, McDonalds, KFC, Roman’s Pizza, St Elmos, Kaprinos and Sweets from Heaven. A new entrance promotes easy accessibility for shoppers. Several new stores - from homeware and speciality stores to fashion shops and service providers - have been added to the retail mix. Favourites, such as Foschini, Edgars, Mr Price and Sheet Street, have new shop fronts in line with the refreshed aesthetics of the centre. Visitors can now enjoy the variety of more than 185 stores.
And so we stand today with a retail destination of 73 662 m2, that has become the shopping destination of choice in the Mitchells Plain and Khayelitsha areas and a valuable community resource. It’s certainly a journey to be celebrated.
