Auas Mall nears completion
With most of the current and new shop owners now already trading or in the final stages of preparing their stores and the parking nearing completion, the Auas Valley Shopping Mall will soon be the prime shopping destination.
The Auas Valley Shopping Mall was one of the development that Agra decided upon in the late nineties to diversify Agra’s business into market segments which are not directly affected by climatic changes or other cyclical agricultural patterns, thus generating income streams independent of the agricultural situation in Namibia.
It has since ensured a steady income for Agra and in order to retain anchor tenants and ensure the future existence of the mall, it was decided to upgrade the mall again.
Besides ample parking space, this shopping destination will provide a spacious and tranquil shopping environment on two floors. On the top floor the following businesses are already open and are made up of the Nictus store, Looks Hair Design, Dr Viljoen’s consulting rooms, Insight Optometrist; Auas Vet Med, Auas Valley Pharmacy and on the ground floor the Agra branch, Safari Den, Pick ‘n Pay, Bank Windhoek, the Happy Shop, S & A Cellular, Pep Home, La Mareez Ladies Accessories, Silverberry Jewellery and Beauty; Geek Boutique, LPJ Clothing are already operating. Other businesses that will start trading in the near future in the mall include restaurants and takeaways who have taken up retail space and places like Trendy Clothing; Balloon Boutique; automated teller machines (ATM’s) for First National Bank and Nedbank, Scissors Edge Salon and Car Bath.
Agra celebrated the commencement of the upgrade and extension of the mall with the groundbreaking ceremony on 13 August where the Chief Executive Officer of Agra, Peter Kazmaier said, “This N$220-million investment shows Agra’s commitment to investing in Namibia in a way that is beneficial to all Namibians.”
It has in the meantime become clear that this investment in the flagship property of the Agra property portfolio will offer a modern top-class retail environment, securing and expanding market share with a new contemporary design that offers more choice and excitement.
