Canal Walk Management has communicated a partial shutdown of the popular shopping mall during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The centre will continue to trade during their new revised trading hours of 9 am – 6 pm during the lockdown period. All essential service tenants have agreed to adapt their trading hours to coincide with the centre’s trading hours.

As of Friday, 27 March, only the following stores will be open for trade:

  • Checkers
  • Pick ‘n Pay
  • Woolworths
  • Dis-Chem
  • Clicks

Banks will also be open and ATMs situated close to the open entrances will remain accessible. All other areas where stores are not trading will be cordoned off with clear signage. A limited number of entrances will remain open for the entire lockdown period.

Parking access will operate with the booms fully operational to ensure security measures remain in place. A zero-tariff fee for customers will be introduced from midnight on Thursday, 26 March.

Restaurant Services

The Restaurant Association of South Africa (“RASA”) has confirmed that no restaurants will be allowed to trade during the lockdown period. This includes all deliveries, take away or home delivery services. There will be no exception to any alternative circumstances and no exceptions will be made for any type of food service to continue to trade.

“Let us work together through these challenging times and continually support our Government’s calls to heed all the COVID-19 protocols introduced to fight the spread of this perilous virus. Stay safe and let us work together as a united country,” Canal Walk Centre Management.
