Cascades centre continues ‘healthy’ growth

2011-08-02 00:00

THE lure of new suburban customers and a special invitation from a shopping centre owner convinced Pietermaritzburg health shop owners Helen Liaropoulou and Katrina Rautenbach to establish a new shop in Cascades Centre.

Liaropoulou and her daughter Rautenbach are the owners of Macrobiotic Health Shop in the Pietermaritzburg CBD and Health on Broadway in Durban North.

They told The Witness that the new shop is aimed at new clientele, including out-of-towners.

She hopes to benefit from Cascades’ ongoing revamp, following the purchase of the Centre by well-known property developer Rob Alexander of Ducatus Property.

The new shop offers a range of health products, including health foods (“super-foods”), herbs, vitamin supplements, homeopathic remedies, organic cosmetics, healing creams, organic cleaning products, cold-pressed oils, products for diabetics, aromatherapy oils and sports supplements.

Liaropoulou established Macrobiotic Health Shop in 1985 in PMB.

Stalwart anchor Checkers recently told The Witness that they will revamp Checkers Cascades. Clicks also plans to revamp its store at the Centre, adding a pharmacy to its offering. A new Sportsmans Warehouse recently opened at the Centre and a Virgin Active gym is in the process of being developed.
