There are almost as many types of shopping experiences in Jozi as there are shoppers. Here’s where to find something to suit your style and budget after you land from your cheap flights to Johannesburg.
Big bargain hunters beware, you may blow your tightly controlled budget when you hit these top Jo’burg shops.
- Big L’s
You can never have too much denim, unless you shop at this discount designer shop where you’ll find Levi’s of every kind. There are skinny ones, straight ones, tapered ones and slim cut ones. The prices are a shadow of the amount you see on boutique labels and hover around half amount of what you’ll pay in a retail store.
- Big Blue Clearance Store
If it’s super cool it probably comes from Big Blue – and at a not-so-cool price too. That’s where this clearance store is the saviour of those who aspire to turn heads on a tight budget. All these end-of-range items are limited so book your cheap flights to Johannesburg and get there as soon as you can.
Clothing isn’t the only thing you can get for nickels and dimes in Jozi either. The coricraft furniture factory store is a win for those looking to refurbish their pad with simple, attractive pieces at discount prices.
- Geldof Chocolatiers
Chocolate lovers need to go straight to the source if they want to get gourmet sweet treats at a fraction of the price. Browse amongst the seasonal treats, truffles and slabs and walk away with a sweet deal made right on site when you shop at Geldof’s.
- Woodmead Retail Park
Short on time? Head for the motherlode of factory shops at Woodmead Retail park, where you can pick up big names for a song. Think
