Cascades Woolworths to be upgraded

2011-08-04 00:00

YET another national tenant at the Cascades Centre has confirmed plans to upgrade their store at the centre.

Giant retailer, Woolworths, told The Witness that they plan to extend their food offering at the store, which opened its doors in 2005.

This news follows recent confirmation from Clicks and Checkers that they will upgrade their stores at the Centre.

Cascades was purchased by well-known property developer Rob Alexander of Ducatus Property. It now boasts a new Sportsmans Warehouse, and a Virgin Active gym will open its doors in a matter of months.

Several Pietermaritzburg-owned businesses have also refurbished their stores.

Woolworths welcomed the modernisation of the centre, adding that it should offer customers a more compelling shopping experience.

“We do our best to ensure that we meet and, where possible, exceed our customers’ expectations and are looking forward to the exciting changes planned for our own store. We’ve listened to our customers and in response to their needs, are chiefly planning to extend the delicious, quality food catalogue on offer at our Cascades store,” a spokesman said

The upgrade of the 281 square-metre store will begin during the course of 2012.

“We have been fortunate enough to enjoy the support of a broad base of customers … in the Pietermaritzburg area for many years,” Woolworths added.
