The damage caused from the riots in July 2021 resulted in most of Springfield Value Centre having to be demolished and rebuilt. Now over a year later we have made some excellent progress and have taken this time to strategize key movements during the rebuild.
“Many of our customers have been reaching out to us via social media to find out exactly when the centre will be reopening, and we would like to thank you for your support and patience. The damage at the centre was extensive and the project team has been working tirelessly to have the centre reopened as soon as possible. We are excited to announce that 70% of the centre will be reopening on September 29, the balance of the centre will be reopened by the end of the year.
Unfortunately, due to various circumstances locally and around the world, Nike Unite will only be reopening in June 2023,” said Donald Mclellan, SA Corporate Real Estate (Limited) National Marketing Manager.
“Due to a strong tenant mix of branded outlet stores the centre had a substantial waiting list of interested stores, some of which, we are now been able to accommodate,” said the Southern Region Asset Manager of SA Corporate, Mark Mac Kaiser, “This was achieved by enhancing the tenant mix, introducing more efficient store sizes and locations so that shoppers are now able to enjoy comparative shopping with similar stores located in closer proximity to each other,” he explained.
“Whilst Pick ‘n Pay has been trading during the construction, we confirm that the following much loved brands will all be returning: Cotton On, Factorie, G Star Raw Outlet, Nike Unite, Kingsmead Shoes, Footgear, Mr Price Apparel, Crocs, Bogart Man, Jam Clothing, Global Brands, Wimpy, Adidas, Furniture Vibe, Levi’s, International Brands Outlet, Levisons, Superga, UFO Furniture, Sedgars Furniture, Le Coq Sportif, Under Armour and New Balance,” elaborated Sharmaine Ramsahai the Springfield Value Centre, Centre Manager.
Ramsahai was also very excited to announce some new stores, “these retailers are aligned with our unique selling point of bringing you the best value for money; Dis-Chem, Studio 88 Outlet, The Value Store, Typo, Kappa, Puma, Overland Apparel and a 24-hour McDonald’s Drive Thru. Living true to the Springfield Value Centre brand, Pick ‘n Pay have adapted their offering and have changed their store to a Pick ‘n Pay Qualisave store.”
“We also have some big prizes and amazing competitions running – so, to keep up with this and any further updates on the progress of the Rise of Springfield Value Centre, follow us on social media”, she added.
