The co-owners of Liberty Midlands Mall in Pietermaritzburg (Liberty Two Degrees and Liberty Group Limited), announced plans to increase their investment in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands with a highly anticipated expansion of Liberty Midlands Mall.

“The new phase is attracting exciting new brands and speciality stores that are currently not available in the market, as well as providing some of our existing retailers the ability to expand. We consider Pietermaritzburg a stable economic environment with good growth prospects,” said Alex Phakathi, Chief Operating Officer, Liberty Two Degrees.

On completion of Phase 3, the size of the centre will increase to an impressive 78 000m2, answering to the demand for space in this esteemed mall.

Liberty Midlands Mall opened its doors in 2003 as the area’s largest shopping mall and swiftly became the preferred retail destination in the KwaZulu Natal Midlands.
