Shopping Centers

Nelson Mandela Bay offers several well designed trendy retail shopping malls which are conveniently located in popular areas. Most shops are open from 09h00 to 18h00.

Specialty and antique shops abound; scattered at interesting sites around the city. The tree-lined streets accommodate businesses, private homes and the most interesting array of shops, all co-existing in perfect harmony. Some shops specialise only in fresh flowers, on ceramics, second-hand books and on clothes. Most of the antique shops prevail in the historical area of Central Port Elizabeth along Rink Parliament and Lawrence Streets, as well as Clyde Street, Pearson Street and Westbourne Road. In Uitenhage, notable antique haunts are located along Cuyler, John & Caledon Streets. Diamond and gold jewellery, including a wide range of specially designed and handmade old jewellery, are available at different jewellery shops throughout the metro.

Original, traditional and attractive mementoes and souvenirs are available throughout the metro and the more informal shopper can visit the flea market and "Art-in-the-Park" every first and last Sunday of the month in St George’s Park.

Visitors who prefer to do shopping in air-conditioned shopping malls have different options to choose from.

The Bridge Shopping and Entertainment Centre, is reputed to be the second longest under one roof in South Africa when associated with the adjoining Greenacres Shopping Centre. This up-market centre is one of the Metro's newer and more unusual centres, hosting cinemas, hi-tech computerised games, banking facilities, a food court with restaurants and coffee shops, and trendy fashion malls. The Greenacres side of the mall provides branches of large, well-known chain stores, smaller novelty and speciality shops, jewellery shops, banking facilities, a food court with coffee shops, restaurants and fast food outlets, as well as many unique and interesting clothing boutiques.

Known as the "Cosmopolitan Centre", Walmer Park Shopping and Entertainment Centre, located in Main Road, Walmer, is one of Port Elizabeth's most up-market retail shopping complexes and is favoured amongst locals in the surrounding residential areas. The Centre offers shoppers easy access to all the amenities within the complex, including the movie theatres, a variety of hardware, book, jewellery shops, restaurants, coffee shops and fast-food outlets as well as clothing boutiques and branches of large well-known chain stores.

Designed to be a "must see" attraction with a full mix of family fun, entertainment, shopping, dining and gaming, the Boardwalk Casino and Entertainment World has added a whole new dimension to leisure in the metro. Located in Summerstrand, the complex is set around a series of man-made lakes and beautiful gardens lit by 40 000 Tivoli lights. There are numerous entertainment venues available in the centre, such as the elegant Tsitsikamma Conference Centre; the Supersport Arena, which features a regular line-up of comedy and music acts, and the Boardwalk Amphitheatre. Apart from these attractions, the casino offers 700 slot machines and 20 gaming tables, including blackjack and roulette.
