Twin City, in partnership with Vuno Developments, is set to develop a new 20,000m² mall in Vryburg – the first enclosed shopping mall for the North West agricultural town.

Dubbed Twin City Vryburg, the mall is a R290m development with around 70 stores, three anchor tenants, restaurants and service outlets. Ryno de Leeuw, chief operating officer of Twin City, says the project is still in the planning stage with the mall expected to open in the last quarter of 2021.
“Twin City Vryburg is an exciting greenfields development and is the group’s second foray into the North West province, with Rustenburg Mall set to open in 2020 – a project done in partnership with the Moolman Group. It will bring a modern, one-stop shopping destination to the people of Vryburg and surrounding communities.”
The Vryburg development site, which forms part of the town’s CBD, is located on the N18 national road into town. Vryburg is situated in the Naledi Local Municipality and seat of the Dr Ruth Segomotsi Mompati District Municipality in the western part of the North West Province. The N14 national route also cuts through the town, which connects North West’s capital Mahikeng (159km away) with the Northern Cape’s capital, Kimberley.
Established walkways already exist to the shopping centre’s development site from the largest township in Vryburg, Huhudi. This means the new mall will provide direct access to pedestrians who currently walk to the town’s CBD for shopping and access to government and other services.
The mall will have a primary catchment area of more than 14,500 households, while there are over 23,000 households in its secondary catchment area.
