A new vision for Maluti Crescent

Maluti Crescent shopping centre to expand to 34 000m² making it dominant in its trade area.

Macro Concept

Maluti Crescent s​hopping c​entre is currently a single level 22 000m² strip ​centre servicing the Phuthaditjhaba area. The expansion will increase the size of the​ Maluti Crescent s​hopping c​entre by 12 000m², as well as adding ​an additional supermarket anchor, Pick n Pay. ​The centre will transform from a strip centre into a fully enclosed air-conditioned ​m​all. Access will be improved by a new entrance to Motebang Road.


The centre is currently anchored by Game and Superspar. With the addition of a Pick n Pay Supermarket and an enlarged Woolworths, the national fashion offering will improve significantly.


Maluti Crescent Shopping Centre will provide free open-air and covered parking to both the upper and lower level.


Maluti Crescent Shopping Centre has excellent accessibility and visibility off Mampoi and Motebang Road, with three access points.

Expansion timing / programme

Construction of Maluti Crescent Shopping Centre has commenced with completion in early 2019.

Trade Area

Maluti Crescent Shopping Centre trade area encompasses 2 distinct markets:

The primary market being the residents of Phuthaditjhaba D, Kudamane SP, Dithotaneng, Phuthaditjhaba H, Phuthaditjhaba A, Phuthaditjhaba J, Boitekong, Ntshelele SP, Phuthaditjhaba C, Slovo Park. The secondary market further afield consists of the following: Manguang SP, Mantsubise SP, Matsikeng SP, as well as commuters from Lesotho and residents in the nearby communities.


The Maluti Crescent customer profile falls across all economic categories. Household incomes vary from migrant workers, government employees, private sector employees (retail, hospitality, transport, financial services) as well as affluent entrepreneurs and families dependent on social grants. In each case the numbers are significant, ​creating a demand for a wide range of products and services in the mall. The Maluti Crescent customer aspires to a higher quality retail offering.



The nature of the local urban landscapes allows for a single dominant regional mall, that will be Maluti Crescent. Maluti Crescent will capture the entire regional mall shopper market, taking away the need for local shoppers to venture as far as Bethlehem and Harrismith for second order goods.
