Eastgate opens fashion centre, parkade
Eastgate Shopping Centre’s refurbishment, which commenced in the first quarter of 2008, comes to the end of the first phase, with the completion of the Entrance 1 parkade, housing an additional 700 parking bays, scheduled for the end of June 2010.
The centre has a demarcated area on the lower level dedicated to brand name fashion stores, which began accepting tenants from mid-March. The shops are grouped together according to their target customers; those who prefer sophisticated ÔÇ£high-endÔÇØ fashion will find a number of branded stores catering to their needs in the Fashion Walk, while those who enjoy trendy casual, outdoor and adventure wear need look no further than the Action Zone.
The Fashion Walk houses stores such as Accessorize, Jo Borkett, Mango, Forever New, La Senza, Just Japs, Bellagio, Preview, Sasch, Cross Over, Editions, Naf Naf, Vigano and Jack Friedman. The Action Zone shoppers will find brands like Reebok, Rockport, Ecko, Sneakers, Gen X, Columbia, Billabong, Shesha, Canterbury and Mr Price Sport.
ÔÇ£I cannot wait for the centre to be finished. Our new fashion sections will certainly create a variety of choice for our valued shoppers, ensuring that there is something for everyone,ÔÇØ said Moses Sekhokho, centre manager. ÔÇ£The construction is on schedule and the building teams are making good progress,ÔÇØ he added.
