“The centre, situated in Windhoek, was re-launched during April 2014 following its refurbishment,” says Primedia Lifestyle Group’s MD Doug Mayne. “We’re thrilled to be on board and to be able to showcase work from our respective companies.”

Maerua Mall is targeted at the mid to upper LSM consumer.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase the strategic marketing skills of Primedia Lifestyle Group and we’re confident that the mall and its consumers will directly benefit from our collective marketing drives,” says Doug. “We look forward to the mall’s re-launch and know that its refurbishment will bring welcome offerings to its community.”
