Shopping in Rosebank, Johannesburg
The classy suburb of Rosebank in northern Johannesburg offers the shopper a wide range of merchandise from the very expensive, glitzy, international brands to the hip and trendy fashion trends for the younger taste.
Situated in one of the trendiest business nodes in the country, it is easily accessible from all major cities in Gauteng via the M1 freeway or the Gautrain Station which is located opposite Rosebank Mall in Oxford Road.
The shopping area includes the Rosebank Mall, The Zone@Rosebank, The Firs, Mutual Square and The Mews, as well shops along Oxford Street. And when the shopping is done, relax at one of the many eateries, from al fresco to indoor dining, from an excellent cappuccino with a snack to a full blown gourmet meal.
Currently a three-storey stylish, spacious shopping centre, the Rosebank Mall is being refreshed and almost doubled in size. Trade will continue without interfering with your excellent shopping experience. The new sections are expected to be smoothly phased in from as early as the second quarter of 2013 when the shopper will have over 160 stores from which to choose.
The wide spacious walkways and light modern design make shopping a pleasure. The range of men’s and women’s fashion and accessory stores, from high end designer fashion to casual weekend wear, will ensure your individual style. Upmarket restaurants, smart coffee bars and a Cinema Nouveau complement your shopping experience.
The African Craft Market at the mall, with its exclusive collection of African art, tribal artefacts and indigenous curios, has become one of the city’s major tourist attractions. On a Sunday, the mall rooftop converts into the Rooftop Market (from 09h00 – 17h00), one of the most popular markets in Johannesburg, offering food and merchandise – a bargain hunters’ paradise. Both these markets will not be affected by the upgrade.
There is ample parking space – as there are over 1 875 parking bays – making a trip to the mall a breeze.
