When one thinks of shopping malls, three things come to mind: crowds; screaming children and paying for everything. If the lively hustle-bustle has become more like a hellish-hurdle to the exit then today’s Groupon will put an end to your mall-o-phobic manifestations: pay R30 for a R100 ticket to shop at the tranquil and eco-friendly Karoo Lifestyle Centre.
If you feel that one more minute of patience-pushing crowds and terrifying toddlers will end you, then drag your mall-maimed self down to the Karoo Lifestyle Centre for a unique shopping experience and a breath of fresh country air. Set away from the bustle but not out-of-the-way of the hustle, the Karoo Lifestyle Centre houses a creative community of entrepreneurs whose unique stores boast home-made marvels and proudly South African products.
Discover the culinary gems at the Farmstall@Karoo or go gaga for the unique Pretty Nice which houses all the itty bitty cutie-pie touches and gorgeous accessories to decorate a baby’s room with. Cover up the cold with a marshmallowy-soft jersey from Annette Oelofse Mohair Products or pick up a handmade bag or a dress from Anne Me’s unique range of handmade clothing, accessories and bags. If living green is what gets you going then The Green Corner is your one-stop-shop for products which are both healthy and environmentally friendly; or embark on your own antique road show with Buy Gone Day’s impressive range of well-aged antiques.
Say goodbye to stuffy stores and packed parking lots with today’s green-inspired Groupon.
Green Fact: The organisation Green Peace experienced problems when a rival organisation who protested against protesting started protesting against Green Peace. The whole issue was very confusing and was eventually settled when Green Peace gave their rivals a peace offering of a golden donkey statue and a voucher for the mall.
