14 November 2018 South Africa’s Coolest Mall has something special planned this festive season. With never before seen promotions and fun holiday specials, there is something for everyone at the Mall of Africa. Shoppers can look forward to extended shopping hours, mega sales, wholesome family entertainment and a whole range of fun activities, sure to keep everyone in the jovial spirit. Here’s a list of what you can look forward to at the Mall this holiday season:
Black Friday: The first event Mall of Africa consumers can look forward to is Black Friday, on the 23rd November 2018. Mall of Africa visitors will also enjoy the exclusive service of our concierge ambassadors, who will make their Black Friday experience a little easier. Our mall ambassadors are there to enhance and delight the shopping experience of our consumers.
Extended Trading Hours: As from the 7 December 2018 – until 1 January 2019, the Mall will also be implementing extended trading hours, to accommodate holiday shoppers.
Beach at the Mall: If you are not going to the beach this festive season, don’t worry because Mall of Africa is bringing the beach to you! “Fun in the sun” is what it’s all about at the Mall of Africa this December, as Waterfall Park is transformed into a summer playground with activities that children of all ages can enjoy.
The summer playground at Waterfall Park will be open from Saturday 8 December until Sunday 23 December with a choice of two sessions per day: 9am till 1pm or 2pm till 6pm for R 50 p/p per session (children under two years of age can play for free) which allows access to all of the activities. Don’t forget to bring your swimming costume, towel and plenty of sunscreen!
Kiddies Entertainment at The Jungle Play Park: Kiddies will be entertained on Friday’s and Saturdays at the Jungle Play Park & Shongololo by Toys R us and Hamleys. Character appearances and face painting will continue to take place.
Gift wrapping services: Shoppers can save themselves a lot of time and effort by taking their gifts to the gift-wrapping stations where, for a nominal fee, they can get them all beautifully wrapped by the volunteers from the Midrand Rotary Club. All proceeds will be donated to the following organisations:
- Kitty & Puppy Haven: Animal Haven rescue in Midrand
- Sihlangene ECD Forum: Looks after the needs of 300 crèches in Tembisa
- Dolphine Acres: Long term psychiatric care facility currently caring for Life Esidimeni patients
The Festive Season is a time for giving. Customers will also be able to buy and donate a teddy bear by popping it through the heart of the 4m tall Hamleys wire teddy outside Woolworths on the upper level. All teddies will be donated to the Teddy Bear Foundation, an organisation that provides holistic care and support for children who have been abused. Support the Hamleys BBFF (Best Bear Friends Forever) campaign.
Ringing in the festive season the Mzansi Youth Choir: Shoppers can look forward to being serenaded by the Mzansi Youth Choir this festive season. Stationed at Town Square and the Crystal Court, shoppers can look forward to hearing an assortment of holiday classics. The Mzansi Youth Choir is widely regarded as the best show choir in the country. Performance highlights include performances with the Andrea Bocelli, Josh Groban, Shakira and Celtic Women. The Mzansi Youth Choir was established in July 2003 and aims to provide talented, underprivileged youths with the opportunity to perform on a local and international stage.
