Tzaneen Lifestyle Centre celebrated a decade of trading on Saturday, the 13th of November amid great pomp and ceremony courtesy of local radio station Katbok Radio and several other local businesses. The Lions Club took the opportunity to conduct free sugar testing in solidarity with international Diabetics Month and managed to screen more than 200 people on the day.

For the little ones there was face painting, jumping castles and even a fun run around the premises. Stalls lined the parking lot as local business joined in the festivities. Locals took the opportunity to familiarize themselves with local estate agents, car dealerships, jewellers, and other businesses hugely affected by the 2020 lock down. Art students from Ben Vorster High exhibited their work in the main foyer of the centre and retailers offered amazing one-day-only deals.

The centre was officially opened in 2011 and since then has grown from strength to strength. This centre boasts the Shoprite / Checkers Group’s flagship retail outlet. The Checkers situated here, is the leading store in the entire Gauteng region (Limpopo falls under this region). It also recently gained a Mr Price Home and a Milady’s outlet and there are whispers in among the corridors of an exciting Phase 2 development.

The centre is managed by Suzette Dippenaar and falls under the Resilient Property Group which owns large stakes in several shopping centres and malls across the country including Tzaneng Mall and Tzaneen Crossing. The woman charged with the management of all three the local shopping centres, Alida Smit, said that she was very happy with the weekend’s proceedings. “It is humbling to see the support our little centre receives from the local community. It shows that we are doing something right and that it is being appreciated.

We look forward to spending the next decade in the company of our beloved Tzaneen and thank everyone for their continued support. Should any of our regular visitors identify a need for improvement, we encourage you to please let us know, so that we can make work of it.”
