Since opening in 2006, Vaal Mall has enjoyed one of the highest trading densities of any regional mall in South Africa. Situated in the heart of Vanderbijlpark and the Vaal Triangle, Vaal Mall offers 67 000m² of convenient shopping. This regional mall boasts over 140 fashion and retail stores, a food court with a variety of take-away and sit-down restaurants, a wide variety of banking services and seven different promotional courts with parking to accommodate over 3000 cars. Major anchor tenants include Pick n Pay, Woolworths, Edgars and Game.
The centre is located at the intersection of the Golden Highway and Barrage Road, Vanderbijlpark. Access from the entire trade area is by means of these two roads and Rossini Boulevard which are all double carriageway arterials. Vaal Mall draws shoppers from a vast area including primarily Vanderbijlpark, Sasolburg and the Western fringe of Vereeniging, including Boipatong, Roshnee, Sebokeng, Bopalong, Evaton and Sharpeville.
Vaal Mall is currently adding an exciting 15 000m² expansion which will include Cotton-On, Ster Kinekor cinemas with a prestige cinema offering, expansions to Truworths, Foschini, Markham, Edgars and amongst others, Total Sports. It is the success of Vaal Mall that has provided the impetus for this expansion. With construction underway, Flanagan & Gerard look forward to the opening of phase two on 16 March 2016.
The expansion welcomes new brands to Vaal Mall which include Cotton On, Mr Price Sport, Turn ‘n Tender, Ster Kinekor, Due South, Typo and Studio 88 to name a few. Brands that have expanded their footprint this year so far include Truworths, Foschini, Markham and Edgars amongst others, with Woolworths expected to complete its expansion in November 2016.
