Sandton City’s parking is now open around the clock, supporting safer roads over the festive season.
South Africa’s premier shopping mall now offers secure and affordable parking for people who want to leave their cars overnight or longer, as well as for those who want to enjoy the best shopping experience that South Africa has to offer.
“This is the season of celebration, where more people get together with their friends, colleagues and families. With the many entertainment options in and around Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square, the Sandton social scene buzzes right throughout the festive season. Getting behind the wheel after a night out or long lunch is never a good choice, but that shouldn’t prevent people from enjoying the season in the city. Fortunately, there are so many alternatives for getting home safely from Sandton, from the Gautrain to taxis and even tuk-tuks. Now, Sandton City is adding to the solution by offering a safe, convenient place to leave your car and collect it again at any time, day or night. We hope this will help people to make the right choice and stop them from getting behind the wheel after having a good time,” says Preston Gaddy, General Manager of the Sandton Precinct for JHI Retail.
Gaddy reports that Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square are seeing an increased use of their parking as Sandton Central moves towards becoming a 24-hour city. Early birds and night owls alike are extending the demand for easily accessible, secure parking around the clock.
Also, people using the Gautrain services are parking their cars at this landmark super-regional mall because its parkades stay open 24/7 and offer an affordable alternative for longer parking periods.
Sandton City, which is owned by Liberty Two Degrees, Liberty Group Limited, Pareto Limited, and managed by JHI Retail, has always been on the leading-edge of parking services and systems.
Some two decades ago, Sandton City introduced special rates for its uncovered roof parking, and to this day it remains one of the most valued services with many of its loyal shoppers.
Similarly, Sandton City’s long-established weekend R10 parking flat rate rewards shoppers for their visits and enables them to take their time, stay longer and enjoy more.
More recently, in response to today’s busy world where people crave friction-free shopping experiences, it has also introduced ground-breaking ticketless parking with admyt, adding to the ease of visiting Sandton City.
Answering the increased demand for parking services that match modern lifestyles, Sandton City has now geared up its parkades to cater to customers’ parking needs night-and-day.
“Our parking is often the first and last impression that customers have of our mall. We want any trip to Sandton City and Nelson Mandela Square to start and end on a high note,” says Gaddy.
He adds that while everyone should enjoy everything the festive season has to offer – and there’s plenty on offer at Sandton City – road safety doesn’t take a holiday, and that is why Sandton City’s parkades won’t take a holiday either. They will be open 24/7 right throughout the season and beyond.
