December 2, 2015, 6:31am


The opportunity to do Christmas shopping in a spacious, homely and customer friendly atmosphere, while enjoying a free concert by the popular COTA Youth Choir, might just be what the end-of-year-weary shopper needs. This is what the Auas Valley Shopping Mall will be offering at their late night shopping event on Tuesday, 8 December 2015.

All the stores in the Auas Valley Shopping Mall will stay open until 21:00 on Tuesday, the 8th December 2015 and will offer lots of special specials that will only be available on this day from 17:00 until 21:00 as well as other promotions and prizes to be won. The mall will also offer entertainment in the form of the choir performing and Santa handing out prizes to lucky winners and posing for pictures with the little ones, while Santa’s helpers will be available in the mall to attend to any special requests of shoppers.

The Auas Valley Shopping Mall, with plenty of free parking, has become a popular destination for shoppers who prefer to do their shopping in a less congested environment. The majority of the stores in the mall are Namibian businesses, giving this mall a unique shopping experience for customers. Agra offers all that the farmer and gardener need and both Agra and Pick ‘n Pay Namibia take care of the grocery needs while well-known Namibian outlets such as Nictus and Safari Den provide all the needs for furnishing a house or enjoying an outdoor holiday.

There is the Auas Valley Pharmacy and Auas Vet Med for medicine and health products for man and animal well being and an optometrist is available to tend to your eye care. Jonno’s Bistro is a sociable restaurant with an exceptional menu while the popular Steers, Debonairs and Fish Aways offer takeaway food and the well-known Wiesenhof Coffee Shop forms part of Pick ‘n Pay. Various smaller retailers offer baking and party necessities, clothing, jewellery, accessories, electronics and toys while two hairdressers and a tattoo parlour take care of individual style.

Certain businesses will also use the opportunity to exhibit products, such as the Safari Guns store, which is part of Agra Arms, Ammunition and Outdoor, who will have a stand in the basement parking to showcase their new range of Klarus torches, described as some of the most exciting, practical and innovative LED torches on the planet with ultra high Lumen output.

To add to the “proudly Namibian” approach, the mall management decided to host the COTA Youth Choir, a dynamic group of young singers from Windhoek and surrounding areas under the leadership of the talented Fanie Dorfling..The choir’s repertoire includes Western, Classical and African music and they have a number of awards on their tally. Some of the most recent highlights of the choir include three gold medals they received in the Championship for Scenic Folklore, Musica Sacra and Spiritual categories and one silver medal in the Mixed Youth Choir category at the World Choir Games in June 2014 in Riga, Latvia in Europe. Before the games they also performed in Bulgaria and Sweden. Shoppers will have the opportunity to listen to them while shopping, or taking a pause between visits to the various shops and they will have their CD’s available on sale.

The Auas Valley Shopping Mall has a very hands-on, customer oriented approach with mall manager, Tiaan Nel, always visible in the mall, or a phone call away. This is also what the mall plans to offer clients throughout the festive season and with the late night shopping on 8 December planned as a highlight for the pre-holidays shopping period.
