Celebrations as new Thavhani Mall taxi rank opens


Shoppers can now get to Thavhani Mall in a flash thanks to the brand new taxi rank that officially opened for commuters on 12 January.

The drop-off and pick-up rank is situated next to Thavhani Mall’s lower parking. Seven associations will make use of their own dedicated taxi bay from the centre, making a trip to the mall a breeze for hundreds of shoppers.

In addition to throngs of excited shoppers, the official launch was attended by Mayor of Thulamela Municipality, Councillor AS Tshifhango, and Chairman of South African National Taxi Council, Balanganani Shandukani, along with several other dignitaries.

The seven associations using the rank include Thohoyandou, Malamulele, Sibasa-Ltt-Polokwane, Sibasa-Venda-JHB, Vuwani, Mutale, and Siloam ensuring the region is connected to Thavhani Mall like never before.

The new taxi rank will not only be a huge benefit to shoppers but also a number of the centre’s employees who will enjoy quicker commute times and the advantage of arriving right at Thavhani Mall’s doorstep. To celebrate its important new milestone, Thavhani Mall ran a special competition by giving away R400 worth of shopping vouchers daily together with a grand prize voucher valued at R1,000.

Brandon Nesengani, CEO at Thavhani Mall says the rank will make it more convenient for everyone to enjoy the very best shopping in Thohoyandou. “We’re so pleased to help make daily visits to Thavhani Mall safer and easier for everyone through our dedicated taxi rank. Now our customers can save the walking for their next shopping spree,” says Nesengani.
