Business fraternity ready for year-end shopping


Polokwane businesses are welcoming residents and visitors to the city to a shopping experience that will offer something for everyone this Festive Season.
Living up to its status as regional business hub, there is no need for discerning shoppers to travel out of the city to take advantage of special offers, as competitive local prices and a wide variety of merchandise will be available.
The city’s primary shopping hub, Mall of the North, has over 180 shops with ample and safe parking facilities to ensure an unforgettable one-stop buying spree for those departing to a holiday destination, while home birds may take advantage of enough time available to do browsing and window shopping. Extended shopping hours on 14 December offer the ideal opportunity for late-night shopping.
Specialist shops in other smaller malls and business nodes in the residential areas also have special offers and browsing the internet for specials, may make a visit worthwhile.
For those spending the holidays at home, December is a time to do those things that are left behind during the year and retail outlets like Paint Pot, Gelmar, Stewarts & Lloyds and Wasa Pumps are the places to go for the right product to make your do it yourself project a success without breaking the bank.
United Furniture Outlet (UFO) has the most extensive variety of furniture on display and its experienced staff are always at hand to offer expert advice and demonstrations to ensure that shoppers find the correct item for their specific needs.
Provincial Police Spokesperson Maphure Manamela appealed to shoppers to be vigilant when shopping or using ATMs. “We have raised a lot of awareness of crime prevention over the coming Festive Season and are prepared for any eventuality and will conduct a number of special operations,” she said.
