NEW LOOK AND NEW TENANTS FOR EASTGATE SHOPPING CENTRE: THE RETAIL DESTINATION OF CHOICE IN THE EAST OF JOHANNESBURG 

8 March 2016 - Eastgate Shopping Centre, one of Johannesburg’s largest super-regional malls, is nearing the completion of its 24-month refurbishment and extension project. The project has been driven by Stanlib as the asset manager of the asset. The shopping centre will soon be ready to launch as the leading premier lifestyle destination in the East of Johannesburg with 133,000 m² of prime retail space to cater for every kind of shopper.

The extensive project has already seen a façade and image transformation. Alex Phakathi, Liberty Property Portfolio Fund Manager for Eastgate Shopping Centre says, “The design approach takes its inspiration from Eastgate’s location in a valley with beautiful surrounding views out to the northern and southern hills. Massive windows have been added on the lower and upper level of Woolworths to emphasize the external environment and achieve more natural light. The refurbished entrances have double volume glass facades with huge overarching roofs to welcome the landscape into the centre and in turn allow the centre to reach out to its physical environment. The relocation of lifts and mall links and the creation of an additional two levels of parking have considerably improved the flow of foot-traffic of the mall. One of the goals of the project is also to improve accessibility for shoppers.”
The project has ensured the introduction of fast-fashion powerhouse outlets such as Zara and River Island. 2016 has already seen the further introduction of a diverse selection of premium brand tenants such as the high-end skincare specialist Dermalogica store that opened in February. 

Shoppers can now enjoy the offering from renowned toy-store Hamley’s which opened on the 2nd of March. The world-famous toyshop best known for its London Regent Street store will showcase its wide range of unique toys in its new Eastgate home. The Eastgate store is currently the largest Hamley’s store in South Africa that spans an impressive 1226m². 


In addition, a number of new food offerings will be introduced to the centre. The Nü Health Food Café chain of trendy health restaurants has taken Cape Town by storm, and Eastgate shoppers will be able to enjoy the Nü Health offering in April. Nü Health is a complementary match for the health conscious and trendy clientele that frequent Eastgate.

Seven Colours which will open in April will add to the centres café offering. Shoppers can also look forward to the re-opening of Bedfordviews favourite Harpers. Harpers will be located in a new stand-alone store near the new Zara mall link. 

In early December 2015, Ster-Kinekor unveiled a magnificent cinema and entertainment complex. The offering boasts luxurious Cine Prestige 3D cinemas and an IMAX® theatre. 
Phakathi concluded, “We are delighted with the success of the project to date and encouraged by the positive consumer feedback. Currently there are over 280 tenants trading at Eastgate Shopping Centre with the figure due to increase to over 300 by the end of 2016.”

NEW HAMLEYS EASTGATE SPREADS SMILES WITH #HAMLEYSBBFF
Hamleys new toy shop at Eastgate Shopping Centre will be spreading smiles with a #HamleysBBFF Donation Station, where pre-loved teddies and new fluffy toys can be donated to the Smile Foundation. 
The #HamleysBBFF Donation Station, into which supports can place their teddy donation through the heart of the 3 metre wire teddy, will be gratefully accepting donations for the Smile Foundation from 25th February to 31st March.  The Foundation is a proudly South African non-profit organisation that provides reconstructive surgery for children with facial abnormalities and burn wounds.
Says Philip Paphitis of Hamleys South Africa, “Teddy bears have a special place in our hearts at Hamleys, and these teddies and other toys will be distributed to children receiving surgery to bring smiles and to comfort them while in the hospital as well as at home. Most of these children have never received a new toy in their life and this heartfelt gesture will lift their spirits after surgery and aid their recovery.”
Teddies have been an integral part of a happy childhood for centuries, and now science has backed up the benefits and shown that cuddling a teddy can assist with healing children who have experienced trauma in their young lives – trauma which is a sad reality in the lives of many South African children.
Tshepo Monnamoroe, Eastgate Shopping Centre Operations Manager says, “We are proud to be supporting the Smile Foundation.  As an Eastgate community, we like to work together as team to put the smile back onto our children’s faces”.
 “There is no child or adult that doesn’t like the feeling of a fluffy teddy. The smile on a child’s face after receiving a teddy bear is absolutely priceless. We thank you for your support,” comments Hedley Lewis, Executive Director of the Smile Foundation.
The Eastgate shop is the 4th and largest Hamleys toy shop to open in South Africa.

EASTGATE SHOPPING CENTRE GIVES A LITTLE BACK THIS SEASON

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, December 2015

Eastgate Shopping Centre has taken time out to give back to the community. The Centre supports its community through various initiatives and activations throughout the year. With the assistance of loyal shoppers, Eastgate Shopping Centre is able to donate significant funds to its charities and through these campaigns support the local community. 

Some of the noteworthy initiatives this year included supporting Elandspark School, Cupcakes of Hope, Kids Haven, Coach and Hospice Wits.

Eastgate Shopping Centre donated R16 000.00 to Elandspark School, a “special needs” school where their aim is to equip their learners with practical skills via vocational training that they can use in ‘the real world’.  The funds were utilized to purchase roller-shutters for their feeding schemes.  Furthermore, Eastgate table cloths were donated to support their Needle Work Classes. 

During the June/July school holidays, Eastgate Shopping Centre brought shoppers the Eastgate Ice Rink to enhance the entertainment offering and to provide a fun experience for the whole family. Eastgate Shopping Centre donated R20252.50 each to Kids Haven and COACH.


Kids Haven provides guidance, therapy, training and support to children on the streets and others in need in the local community. COACH was formed to administrate three Children’s Homes, namely St George’s, St Joseph’s and St Nicolas’ with the Anglican Diocese of Johannesburg. COACH has transformed these centres from simply providing custodial care into fully therapeutic, life space intervention centres. 

Cupcakes of HOPE hosted the 5th National Cupcake Day at Eastgate Shopping Centre in September to raise funds for kids with cancer. The event raised a total donation of R37 341, 50
Cupcakes for HOPE is a Non-Profit organisation that aims to raise awareness for families in need of medical assistance.

The Eastgate Look of Fashion Top 16 Finalists collected and donated clothes to Hospice Wits.
Eastgate Look of Fashion is one of the Centre’s signature events that showcases fashion and beauty. 
Hospice Wits provides palliative care and support to the communities within the Johannesburg Metropolitan District, primarily Johannesburg and Soweto. 

Eastgate Centre Management would like to thank all the tenants and shoppers who participated in the initiatives, as their contributions have truly made a difference in the lives of people in our community.

Media Release
Dated: 04 December 2015 
(New cinema complex at Eastgate)

WORLD CLASS CINEMA EXPERIENCE COMES TO JOHANNESBURG WITH OPENING OF NEW STER-KINEKOR COMPLEX AT EASTGATE
Ten state-of-the-art cinemas promise the greatest movie moments for Joburg fans

Movie lovers are in for a surprise today (Friday, 04 December), when the new, state-of-the-art Ster-Kinekor cinema complex at Eastgate opens its doors. The complex, now situated on the roof level of the shopping centre, houses an IMAX® theatre, two luxurious Cine Prestige 3D cinemas and seven more cinemas, two of which are 3D-ready. 

Two lounge areas, one exclusively for SK Club members – the SK Club Lounge, offers customers the perfect place to relax with family and friends, both before and after the movie, while exciting new catering offerings, including a range of Pizza Hut pizzas, will satisfy any movie-watching hunger pangs.

“As the country’s leading cinema chain, we are delighted to offer movie fans in Johannesburg and surrounding areas some of the world’s most advanced cinemas. At our wonderful new site here on the rooftop at Eastgate, all ten cinemas feature the latest in digital projection technology, resulting in crystal clear images and perfect surround sound, and luxury cinema seating to enjoy that special big screen experience. 

“All of this will ensure that our audiences enjoy ‘Great Moments at their Greatest’ each time they visit our Eastgate cinemas,” says Wanda Matandela, CEO of Ster-Kinekor Theatres.

Ster-Kinekor has a host of special treats and innovations in store for movie lovers at Eastgate. 
Cine Prestige luxury…

These include the two ultra-luxurious Cine Prestige cinemas. Cine Prestige is the ‘business-class’ of cinema, and epitomises film-viewing heaven and pure luxury rolled into one. The two 39-seater Cine Prestige cinemas share an exclusive VIP Lounge area where both tickets and catering can be purchased. Here, customers can order a selection of delicious gourmet platters, coffees, desserts and cakes, the mandatory soft drink and popcorn and, as a new addition, a selection of Fairview wines and craft beers (only served to patrons aged 18 years and older). Customers can also pre-order any of these items to be served to them by the Cine Prestige waiters at their seats inside the cinema. 

The large, red leather seats inside the cinemas are fully-reclinable at the touch of a button, and ooze lavish comfort. Each chair has a snack tray for the platters and refreshments, and also includes another Ster-Kinekor first: a refrigerated cup-holder.

SK Club Lounge
If you are a member of Ster-Kinekor’s loyalty programme, SK Club, you have the use of your very own exclusive lounge area – the SK Club Lounge. Here, members can relax and enjoy a range of delicious snacks and drinks at a dedicated catering counter. Here they can order a selection of imported Austrian coffees, desserts, delicious slices of cake to a range of Pizza Hut pizzas including a new Choc Dessert pizza, and frozen yoghurt. For the over-18s, select wines from Fairview Estate and a selection of craft beers can be enjoyed, both before and after the movie. 

Catering self-service style
At the self-service catering terminals, customers can order their snacks and combos, and make a payment, before proceeding to the catering counter to collect their order. The introduction of this technology puts the power of choice in the hands of our customers. The self-service terminals provide our customers with a seamless experience when buying movie tickets and snacks, before entering the cinema to sit back and enjoy the latest blockbuster on our big screens.

“An exciting new addition to the catering offering at Ster-Kinekor Eastgate is a range of pizzas from Pizza Hut. There is a choice of eight different toppings available in small and large sizes, including an exotic Choc Dessert pizza to add a sweet touch to your movie date!” comments Matandela.

Loyalty programmes
Movie-goers also enjoy all the benefits and discounts available through membership of Ster-Kinekor and its partners’ loyalty programmes: the SK CLUB, Discovery Vitality and Edgars Club. 

The IMAX Experience
Joburg-based IMAX fans can now enjoy the world’s most immersive cinematic experience with the opening of the 375-seater IMAX® theatre, which forms part of the new Ster-Kinekor complex. It is only fitting that the film making its debut in the impressive new theatre on Wednesday, 16 December – two days before its global release on 18 December – is one of 2015’s most anticipated titles, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The pre-bookings for this film across all Ster-Kinekor sites, and especially at its IMAX theatres, can attest to this! 
In the new IMAX theatre, the cinema is fitted with a floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall IMAX screen, the world’s most powerful digital sound system and a dual-projection system for maximum movie immersion. You literally feel as though you are in the movie. 

“The magic of the big screen cinema experience is unique. With the latest blockbusters releasing each week and ten state-of-the-art cinemas in which to watch them, we are confident that audiences who enjoy a ‘great moment’ with Ster-Kinekor at one of our new cinemas in Eastgate will be back for many more such moments,” concludes Matandela.

Films releasing at Ster-Kinekor Eastgate during December, in addition to Star Wars: The Force Awakens that screens in both IMAX® 3D and Cine Prestige 3D, include some great titles for the kids in the special ‘Holly-Day-Care’ summer promotion: Snoopy and Charlie Brown: The Peanuts Movie; The Little Prince; Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road ‘Chip’ and The Good Dinosaur. For all the latest movie news and to make bookings, download the SK App on your smart phone – and have all the information you need in the palm of your hand.

I am also excited to be part of this journey knowing that I will display confidence and humility in all that I do as an ambassador.’

As the winner of the Eastgate Look of Fashion 2015, Shene wins a trip to Italy, valued at 
R60 000.00, sponsored by Sir Franco d’Arrigo, to participate in the 2016 Stella da Europa.
An exciting addition to this year’s event is that the Top Three Winners will gain automatic entry into the Miss South Africa 2016 Interview Round. 
Arthur Kaplan Jewellers, Franco International Hair, Red Square, Stuttafords and Tsogo Sun Garden Court Eastgate were the premium sponsors at this year’s spectacular event.
