THE blue carpet was rolled out for those attending the auspicious grand opening of the completed phase three section of the Liberty Midlands Mall last Wednesday.

Many of Pietermaritzburg’s (PMB) prominent economic players showed their support with their attendance.

With everyone in high spirits, decadent refreshments were served and the crowd was treated to music and a Zulu dancing spectacle.

Mayor Themba Njilo was also present. Emceeing the event was PMB’s very own breakfast drive host on East Coast Radio Bongani Mtolo who spoke of the excitement felt by all Maritzburg locals when the mall first opened.
“I remember the first time the mall actually opened and when I would plan meetings with my friends from other cities I would always say we should meet at the mall,” said Mtolo.

CEO of the Pietermaritzburg Chamber of Business (PCB) Melanie Veness opened the speaking, marvelling how far PMB had come, highlighting just why the city of choice had come this far and will continue to grow.

“This new phase of the mall is not just a project but an opportunity to continuously redefine our city. I would like to thank the Liberty Group for their investments in our city,” said Veness.

Chief Executive of Liberty Two Degrees, Amelia Beattie, opened her speech stating that tomorrow is best prepared for today and that the Liberty Group are firm believers in changing the game.

“The Liberty Midlands Mall was not just for the sake of filling a space for revenue. We planned this out well in advance and have continuously tried to address the need of the community for superior quality and retail convenience,” said Beattie.

Mayor Themba Njilo said that it was an honour to be present at the launch.

“This has been an exciting project and on behalf of the local municipality we would like to extend our well wishes and declare the phase three of the mall officially open.”
