First Checkers Hyper to be built in PMB

2014-02-12 00:00

AFTER a delay with planning approval, the go-ahead has finally been given for the Brookside Mall.

The mall brings the first Checkers Hyper in the area by the end of this year, Shoprite Checkers said yesterday.

Construction activity recently picked up at the Brookside Mall site alongside the northbound side of the N3 near the Liberty Midlands Mall, and around 28 shops will open along with the Checkers Hyper by the year’s end, said Sarita van Wyk, corporate communications and customer relations officer for Shoprite Checkers.

She said that the development will create approximately 1 000 jobs during the construction phase and some 500 jobs are expected to be generated by the tenants once the mall opens.

The first phase will see 15 236 square metres of retail space to house businesses that include Checkers LiquorShop, House and Home, Pep Stores, Ackermans, Clicks and Capitec Bank, with Checkers Hyper as the anchor tenant.
