Marine Walk Shopping Centre experienced its first festive trade in December 2022. The premium mall recently opened in the Sibaya node and is on the doorstep of the brand-new Salta Sibaya Estate.
Designed in a strip mall format, the real estate development industry usually refers to open-air malls as power centres, because they attract and cater to residents in an expanded population area.
As the Salta Community grows, Marine Walk is proving to be just that – a power centre.
Powerhouse tenants include local favourites such as SUPERSPAR, Waxy O’Connors, Casa Nostra, Woolworths Food, Petland, Frozen for You, Dischem, Kauai, Mr Price, Milady’s, Mugg & Bean and Tightline.
Marine Walk is also home to the very first Woolworths W.Edit store in KwaZulu-Natal – a strategic move to expand their footprint by entering smaller malls with a boutique offering of the very best of Woolworths Fashion, Beauty, and Homeware items, curated especially for customers in the area.
SPAR has been part of the Umdloti community for years and the centre is proud to expand on the SPAR offering with the introduction of SUPERSPAR SALTA.
“It has been a privilege to work with a blank canvas and build a SUPERSPAR from scratch at the Marine Walk Shopping Centre”, says Paul Jason, co-owner of SUPERSPAR Salta.
“Our vision is to exceed customers’ expectations through unbelievable service and an extraordinary shopping experience. With notable additions like a dedicated gelato counter, a freshly made sushi station and a wood fired pizza offering, and an in-house café to sit, work, chat and eat at – not to mention a menu built by Durban legends Paul Sheppard of Marco Paulo and Raymond Friedman of Ray’s Kitchen.”
Devmco Group Director, Charles Thompson says, “Convenience is at the heart of this offering as we work towards redefining the customer retail experience. Retail is shifting, and customers are embracing the move to smaller, more intimate shopping zones. They no longer need to travel to the larger ‘city centre’ malls to get their shopping done, when they can do it right here, and enjoy the same service excellence from their favourite local brands, in the fresh open air on the coast – close to home.”
New emerging area to watch Marine Walk is a welcome addition to Salta Sibaya, a hub for residential and commercial activity that is ticking all the boxes with its exceptional product offering. A vibrant coastal lifestyle with sporting facilities and popular amenities, a close-knit community of like-minded people, and the ultimate convenience with popular retail brands, grocers, and restaurants all within close and easy proximity to your front door.
There’s no doubt the opening of Marine Walk Shopping Centre will change the landscape of the Sibaya area for the better, offering residents of nearby areas a safe, convenient and family-centric retail space right on their doorstep.
The highly anticipated shopping space was built around the same philosophy of sustainability and environmental consciousness that Durban-based developers Devmco Group have weaved throughout the Salta development. The stylish retail space boasts large open areas and landscaped terraces for families to enjoy before, during and after their shopping.
