The East Rand of Johannesburg is a residential, commercial and industrial area that is growing consistently. It includes the areas of Boksburg, Kempton Park, Benoni, Edenvale, Brakpan and Germiston. As the main metropolis of the Gauteng Province, Johannesburg is an important hub for both business and pleasure, for locals as well as for visitors from around the world. This part of Johannesburg is also the address of the OR Tambo International Airport, making it accessible to international visitors and locals.
The popular East Rand Mall takes full advantage of the prime position of this area and offers a variety of restaurants, boutiques, chain stores and franchises to appeal to the tastes and needs of the full spectrum of shoppers. Being less than 10 kilometres from the airport only adds to its appeal.
In addition to boasting the largest Pick ‘n Pay Hypermarket in the country, East Rand Mall is also home to around 175 other stores. Popular clothing chains include Woolworths, Edgars, Truworths, Mr Price, Milady’s, Uzzi, Big Blue, Legit, Guess, and Cotton On. Speciality stores like Bra Bar, The Ghetto and Hyde’s Man’s Store are also wonderful to visit.
The range of health and beauty stores is indulgent, inviting shoppers to stock up on all the goodies that they need to preen and pamper themselves, or to buy as gifts for friends and family.
