Retail Property


Comprising shops, shopping complexes, malls, strip malls and various other related premises, retail property in south africa includes a wide range of accessible, well-located spaces in key shopping zones within the western cape, gauteng, pretoria, kwazulu-natal and the eastern cape. retail space varies in its size and characteristics, with a number of different options available depending on the needs of retail businesses who are seeking centrally located shops for their products.

Much like there are industrial and commercial zones, a number of retail properties fall within retail zones. Some may be found within mixed usage areas, or commercial areas, while factory shops can often be located within industrial zones however. As such, this means that the type of premises being sought will play a big role in where the ideal space will be found. A business specialising in wholesale bathroom fittings may find that a factory style space in a light industrial area will be more beneficial than a tiny shop in the heart of the CBD, for instance.
