Mall of Africa

The much anticipated opening of Mall of Africa happened today in Midrand. H&M was the first launch of the day with the media opening scheduled at 7am. A day started by watching the sunrise is always a good one and that it was!

The new H&M store is an impressive two floors with an H&M home section as well. We arrived in store, welcomed by the PR team, dancing employees and a fun media breakfast. After that, Mr Price's store launch happened with an array of gift vouchers, stylist sessions, a braid bar, doughnut stand and a make up artist station. 

Tenants unique to Mall of Africa are stores like Zara Home (one of my favourite stores, the scent alone is to die for); Women's Secret (an underwear and pyjama brand for ladies) ; the second Starbucks in Johannesburg and well fast fashion retailers that are bigger(2 floors) and better than ever before like Cotton On - extended to Cotton On Beats, Mr Price and H&M. If you're looking for opening specials Dion wired , Game, Checkers Hyper, Legit and H&M should be top of your list for the best deals. Overall however, I'd wait until the buzz settles before visiting the mall because the traffic is CRAZY.

Besides the unique stores you can also find unique merchandise within the stores like
the outfit from todays look post. This jacket can be found at the Zara in Mall of Africa along with some of the matching
badges. I most definitely didn't regret going because of the amazing launches and I look forward to visiting again one day soon.
