About Maponya Mall

Soweto is one of the oldest, largest and most significant townships (a South Africa term for the informal settlements that are such a major part of the population and culture here) in the country. It has a massive local population and attracts many tourists for its heritage and the historical sites that can be found within its vibrant streets, public areas and buildings.

Soweto is also home to the Maponya Mall, which is a sizeable hub of retail and commercial activity. The shops alone cover a floor space of some 60 000 square metres, and promise hours of shopping pleasure. There are all of the major clothing chains and franchises available here; including Mr Price, Foschini, Edgars, Identity, Jet, Woolworths, Truworths and Old Khaki. But, there are also local outlets that offer something a little different. The likes of Maponya Fashions, Moobasa, and Mzanzi Designers Emporium are popular amongst locals and visitors alike. Since its very beginning stages, the decision-makers behind the mall have been committed to showcasing and supporting Soweto-based businesses, as well as to providing access to international brands.

There is no shortage of options when it comes to satisfying your hunger pangs at Maponya Mall. Peckish shoppers can try Steers, Spur, Wimpy, The Fish & Chip Co, Chicken Licken, Delhi Delicious, News Café, King Pie and MacDonald’s.

In addition to the Virgin Active gym in the mall, there are a number of other speciality stores and features that set it apart. These include dry cleaners, Seeff Properties, a tattoo parlour, and arts and crafts suppliers. It is also close to many tourist attractions in the informal settlement; such as the Soweto Campus of the University of Johannesburg, 'Hector Pieterson Memorial, and Vilakazi Street Tourism Precinct. Such an array of products and attractions makes Maponya Mall the shopping centre of choice for so many Soweto residents and visitors to the township.
