Mall Of Africa, Midrand Reviews - Write a Review
Lots of upmarket shops. A huge variety. This is a beautiful huge mall, without anything special. The food court outside have a wonderful view, but that is about it. Not a nice atmosphere and nothing that really stood out to me. In short, it is a big mall. According to me, not living up to the hype.
Nice mall. Feels bright and airy with all the glass and plastic "bubbles" over the central food court area. The layout reminded me Bluewater Shopping Centre in Kent, England. Parking was cheap enough but the car parking layout and entrances were not very clearly defined.
A very good mall to shop and/or walk around. It is not small, but it is actually not as big as I thought, but "all shops are open" which is not the case for other malls I have been to. Its shops are quote diverse and seems to cover almost all you need.
Great when you want something specific, but navigation and signage are real issues. The layout has never made sense to me - it’s a lot of walking long distances and it can get confusing. The various halls are supposedly themed differently, but unless it’s that coloured glass roof region, it’s hard to tell. So make sure you know where you’re going - ask security if you can. The store directory touch screens usually don't work at all because they're frozen, though. I don’t know why it’s such a long-lasting issue; you’d think that the budget that built the place would have the means to sort out a software issue. Honestly, it’s not my favourite mall; Menlyn has a more distinct layout that’s easier to navigate. But it’s good that it’s there when Pretoria people need to meet Johannesburg people and neither wants to inconvenience the other too badly.
I had the worst experience at mall of Africa yesterday. Firstly I go there every single weekend as it is the most convenient mal 'll to go to. But yesterday at checkers, I was unpacking my stuff from the trolley and someone violated my privacy and property by digging into my bag and taking out my cellphone. The guy behind me casually says that someone took something from my bag. So I asked what does he look like and he said he has a white t-shirt on. So I go into the aisle and stop a guy in a white t-shirt and ask if he took my phone. And he says he did not. My friend went to the security to ask for assistance and they were so casual and calm about it. And said they going to call from back. Which I do not understand as this is taking place in their store. And they can assist. Especially since we are females. So o went back to ask the guy to describe him to me and he says the guy is leaving the store. So I ran after him and taking the risk into my own hands confronting him for my phone. Lucky enough i saw my phone in hes pocket and grabbed it out of hes pocket. Luckily he was not armed and did not harm me. But what disgusts me is that security did nothing to assists as they saw me running after the guy. I am a young female and anything could of happened. You would think security is there to assist in time of need. And the scary thing is they do nothing about it but are more concerned if peoples steal cheese from the store. I am utterly disgusted in the way they handled the situation. And this has happened before to my friend where here phone was also taken out her bag and people did nothing to assist. We do not feel safe anymore. And the real question is. What the hell is security paid to do. Completely and utterly disgusted!!!!!!!!!!
