Cleary Park Shopping Centre is located right in the heart of Port Elizabeth’s Northern areas, and has for the past 30 years, been the only shopping centre of its size and appeal located in and servicing the local community.
Its closest competitor is approximately 4km away, and although residents in its catchment area have the option of travelling to shop elsewhere, the centre’s frequency of visits’ statistic of 77% outclasses the 65% average for any centre of a similar size, countrywide.
The Centre has an existing gross lettable area of 36 283 sqm, with 1 404 parking bays and over 110 tenants, of which just over 9% occupy commercial office space, 48% are nationals, and the remainder are line store tenants. Taxi commuters make up 6% of the footfall in the centre. The Centre is anchored by PNP, Shoprite as well as Boxer and national stores include: Jet Mart, Truworth, Foschini, Clicks & Ackerman to name but a few. Cleary Park Shopping Centre is truly a focal point for social and community gathering in the area.
The Centre has experienced two major expansions since opening their doors some 30 years ago and now has even more in the way of stores and variety to offer shoppers The last expansion saw the centre increase its size by 10 617m² – adding an extra 40 outlets. Big names in retail such as Jet Mart, Legit, Shoprite Liquors, Fashion World, Debonairs, Torga Optical, Bingo Royale, KFC and Build It are available at the centre. The renovations marked an exciting time for this community, aiming to provide a greater shopping experience and serve the needs of locals even better than before.
In addition to the actual buildings and renovations, the centre also includes a soccer pitch, available for use by the local community, as a mark of strong ties the centre has with the community.
The Centre houses all the major Banks as well as the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Customer Care Centre, Department of Home Affairs and SASSA offices. We further have Doctors as well as a Dentist making this a one stop shopping experience.
The external aesthetics and painting of the centre have been done and the building proudly boasts its new colour scheme of Grey and Red.
