Shopping Mall
“Inspired by similar developments like Box Park in London’s Shoreditch, 27 Boxes, a shipping container shopping development in Melville, has transformed a disused park into 80 boutique stores and restaurant and kiosk spaces geared towards starter entrepreneurs, from fashion designers to chefs, jewellers, artists, interior designers and baristas and bakers. The emphasis of many of the stores is on local design and local production and you will often find that the friendly face behind the counter is also the person who handmade the unique items that you are buying. A quirky alternative to Joburg's mega mall scene.”

Anchored by Pick and Pay Hypermarket, the relaunch of the Woolworths Food only store and home to Food Lover’s Market, Norwood Mall is an iconic neighbourhood favourite.”
