What does a Mall in Africa Look Like?

What does a Mall in Africa Look Like?

Walking around the Accra Mall in Ghana.


Construction on the Accra Mall took two years, with 700 people working on the development since the mall is located within a seismic area. With open skylights, plastered ceilings and tiled floors the Accra Mall is the first and only Grade-A shopping mall and one of the largest modern malls in West Africa. Aurecon engineering and infrastructure advisory company was engaged to undertake both the civil and structural engineering and road design for the Accra Mall.

Open Monday thru Saturday from 10am - 9pm, Sunday and Public Holidays from 12pm - 6pm the Accra Mall is a retail and shopping center in Accra, Ghana, located on the Tetteh Quarshie Interchange. In 2003, the Government of Ghana initiated the expansion of the then Akuafo Circle.

The circle was the largest roundabout in Ghana. The contract for the project was won by Messrs. The interchange was commissioned for vehicular use on February 27, 2005, by the former president of Ghana, John Agyekum Kufuor. The interchange was the second to have been built in Ghana, after the Ako Adjei Interchange. The various roads the feed to the interchange bring vehicular traffic from all over Accra.

The Accra Mall was commissioned on July 4, 2008. It is one of the most modern shopping malls in West Africa and the first large-scale shopping center in Ghana. The mall is an enclosed, fully air-conditioned with around 218,000 square feet or 19,700 square meters of retail shopping space. The Accra Mall has 65 shops and 9 restaurants.

Massmart operates more than 400 stores in South Africa and 12 other sub-Saharan countries. Walmart acquired a majority stake in Massmart Holdings Ltd. in 2011 and Game Stores, as well as Shoprite, are part of the Massmart Holdings group. Game Stores and Shoprite stores are big-box stores selling everything you would see in your typical Target or Wal-Mart.

With shocking pink as its brand color, the first GAME store opened in Durban, South Africa, in 1970. Game Stores are big-box stores selling appliances, electronics, toys, games, clothing, beauty products, kitchen wares, garden plants and furniture and much more. Game Stores are Africa’s largest discount retailer.

Shoprite Group is the 94th largest retailer in the world started in 1979 as an affordable retail chain. The Shoprite grocery store chain started in 1979 with the purchase of a chain of eight South African Cape town based supermarkets.

Being African in America I have grown up learning about different ethnic cultures. My mother is a historian of African culture and history and her influence expanded my activities to several best-selling cookbooks, magazine columns, self-branded products, and a popular African culture and food blog.
