Made in Mzanzi by Menlyn

Made in Mzansi, by Menlyn – a celebration of local retail

Menlyn Park, an iconic shopping centre in the heart of Tshwane is excited to announce the launch of “Made in Mzansi, by Menlyn”. The powers of Menlyn made it their mission to launch this empowering initiative during the month of September, which is dedicated to celebrating South African Heritage – offering the perfect canvas from which to launch.

“Made in Mzansi, by Menlyn” aims to provide the discerning Menlyn shopper with a hub of impressive local retail brands. The brands themselves have been given a leg-up to level-up by Menlyn, to assist them in paving their way to an even brighter future. The mammoth centre offered these local businesses access to their very-own retail-incubation program. The program, centred around equipping these business owners with a retail mentorship which endeavours to arm them with the necessary skills to conquer the world of retail.

Menlyn is bursting with pride to see how the program has empowered these businesses by taking them from either an online platform or from an informal retail setting to brick and mortar stores in the largest shopping centre in Africa.



We urge the immediate Menlyn community to make it their mission to visit the Centre this month to come and scope out the Made-in-Mzansi stores. Trust me, you are in for a spoil! My team has been hard at work curating an impressive collection of local Tshwane retailers. As for the rest of South Africa, I urge the same of you – when you’re in the 012 district, head over to Menlyn and pay these stores a visit.

I am not only excited to see this project come to fruition for the sake of my Menlyn shoppers but I am also incredibly proud to see great local brands pioneering the retail space in our Centre.”
