Ferndale on Republic is set for a grand re-opening on Thursday 29 August 2019, and we’re saving some of the best for last!

The brand new and highly anticipated Food Lover’s Market <https://foodloversmarket.co.za/> has opened its doors on the 27th of June and is conveniently located at the value retail node, which includes the restaurant node of the centre. Shoppers can enjoy dining at their favourite seafood restaurant with the newly improved Ocean Basket or pop in at Tuc n Tap who specialises in quality food and drinks in a vibey and casual atmosphere.  The value retail node of approximately 14,318m² is anchored by Food Lover’s Market, Ignite Gym and Liquor City who are all committed and driven to change the landscape of shopping with Ferndale on Republic as a community shopping centre. 

The community of Randburg can look forward to a contemporary and easy-to-navigate Food Lover’s Market, catering for all your foodie needs with specialty departments such as a Grill Shack, the FruitStop, a Salad Bar, the Cheese & Delicatessen and much more, while still based on traditional family values such as trust, honesty and integrity from the ‘undisputed leaders in fresh, since 1993. Tony, the manager of the store says they were thrilled with the support received from shoppers during the first month, and already feel entrenched as part of the Ferndale on Republic family.  The value retail node where Food Lover’s Market is located further offers ample free parking to enhance your shopping experience.

Food Lover’s Market has brought outdoor dining to Ferndale on Republic with their popular outdoor food market concept. Shoppers are spoilt for choice, with local favourites like gourmet boerie rolls or delicious traditional treats from ‘Pap-arazzi’ , or a slice of authentic Italian pizza to grab and go.  And because life is simply too short to drink bad coffee, Seattle Coffee Co. created a Café experience within the store, brewing with excitement and craft coffee from bean to cup.  Be sure to pop in for your daily caffeine fix!

We’re also improving our customer’s sensory experience in creating a space with visual greenery and natural areas that include features like green screens and living green walls where our community can come together, not only to shop, but also to stroll along the pedestrian pathways, enjoying the atmosphere and environment of the centre.

Shoppers can also look forward to a new covered extension with high ceilings and windows, exposed beams and warm red-brick finish design to create the feeling of an old-time railway shed – with an upmarket twist.

User Rating: 5 / 5

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

Ferndale On Republic is still in the process of being refreshed, but we already are the flavour of the month and the pick of the day in the heart of Randburg.

This is not only due to a brand new, recently relocated and ultra-modern Pick n Pay, but also as a result of the complete centre re-launch on track for later this year, to serve the needs of the community.  One of the major accomplishments is the newly renovated Pick n Pay store and anchor tenant, which forms part of the Pick and Pay ‘Next Generation’ store roll out.  These stores offer enhanced shopper comfort like wider aisles and much bigger fresh food offerings which have been created within the store to suit your needs. This includes the Pick n Pay ‘Grab & Go’ convenience range for those looking for a quick fresh meal and for those who want to stay a bit longer the store now also offers their very own, new-look in-store restaurant – the Fresh Café and Temptations Bar with decadent gelato and freshly made Belgium waffles.

The Pick n Pay store overhaul further included upgrades to several of the fresh food departments including fish and sushi, the butchery, the bakery, the deli and cheese sections with modern refrigeration throughout the store. And for your convenience, the store features new service counters with upgraded till areas to serve you fast and efficiently.

Furthermore, as part of phase 1, shoppers can now visit Ackermans and Mr Price for fashionable shopping and also pop in at Torga Optical, Cell C and Spicy Den as new retailers. We now have a Panarotti’s, Fern Creek Spur and the Brooklyn Biltong store, why don’t you pop in for a quick bite or a night out with family and friends.

Don’t forget that the centre offers plenty of safe, free parking in keeping with serving the needs of our customers and community. It is all about being customer-centric and focus on convenience here at Ferndale on Republic.  The response to date has been overwhelmingly positive, but don’t just believe us, stop by today to get reacquainted with our new fresh look!

Ferndale On Republic sprouts new exciting stores

Star ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar ActiveStar Active

The much anticipated first phase of the new Ferndale on Republic opened on Thursday 28 March 2019 and includes the brand-new Pick n Pay, in their newly built 3,463m² store. Pick n Pay has called this location home since 1995 and we value their commitment and principles that ‘doing good is good business’. A fun fact, Pick n Pay was one of the first retailers to open their doors at the Randburg Waterfront and is now again one of the first retailers that opened their doors at Ferndale on Republic. Mr Raymond Ackerman, also known as the father of retail, purchased the first Pick n Pay store in Cape Town in 1967 and the chain has since grown to over 1680 stores in South Africa and seven other African countries. The brand is recognised as a most trusted retailer and the perfect partner for us as we embark on our next phase of growth at Ferndale on Republic.

Other large retail stores that celebrated their opening on Thursday, 28 March 2019 were Ackermans and Mr Price. We also welcomed Torga Optical, Cell C and Spicy Den as new retailers. Plus, you won’t ever go hungry! We now have a Panarotti’s, Fern Creek Spur and the Brooklyn Biltong store to cater for all your needs, no matter what the time of day. Pop in for a meal morning, noon and night, or just for a snack in-between. You are sure to find all your shopping needs are covered under one roof. Do you want a glimpse behind the scenes and stay up to date with a unique construction experience at Ferndale on Republic? Join our Hard Hat Tours to see how the buildings and phases are evolving from a previous parking area to an amazing new mall. These tours offer an opportunity to walk the building site and view the progress towards the opening in the second half of 2019.
