changing the face-01(1)

Shopping Malls mean different things to different folks.

For some, it’s simply a place to shop till they drop. A place to chill, grab some chops and hang out with friends or somewhere to go watch the latest blockbuster movie from Nollywood, Gollywood or Hollywood.

Residents of Maryland and its environs can now enjoy all of these services and more, at the new Maryland Mall. The mall will open its doors to members of the public on Tuesday, 28th June 2016, after a formal opening event which will be attended by media and leaders from Nigeria’s business, government, civil society and academic sectors.

With over 40 local and international retail brands, a basement car park for with a capacity for over 200 cars, and a fantastic location right in the heart of the city, the exterior of this carefully designed mall will also hoist a 550 square meter LED screen, the largest in Sub-Sahara Africa. This unique feature will set it apart from any other retail complex in Africa’s most populous nation.

Currently, only 2% of Nigerians shop in formal retail supermarkets compared to 60% of South Africans, 30% of Kenyans, 4% of Ghanaians and 2% of Cameroonians.

For those familiar with the Maryland area and the fast growing city of Lagos, the arrival and location of this new mall facility is certainly a welcome development.

Residents of Maryland and Mende, Anthony Village, Ilupeju, Ikeja GRA, Ojota, Ketu, Yaba, Oshodi, Gbagada Phases 1 and 2 and of course, the entire communities along the Ikorodu Road axis can now boast of a friendly, neighborhood mall to go to.

Shoprite, Genesis Deluxe Cinemas, Stanbic IBTC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, Barcelos, Euphoria Smoothies, Shuttles, The Place Restaurant, Chicken Republic, Essenza, Funtasticaland, Wakanow, STORM London, Skate City, Medplus Pharmacy, Asset Chemist, Nett Pharmacy, Samsung, Multichoice, Montaigne Place, Tecno Mobile, Twice as Nice, Little Weavers, Tesla Mobile, Plug Devices, LAX, Babybliss, Axa Mansard and Purple Money.

These are just some of the indigenous and international brands that now call Maryland Mall home.

This is all thanks to the foresight of Purple Capital Partners Ltd, the firm behind the Maryland Mall. Purple Capital Partners Limited (PCPL) began financing and developing the N5 billion retail, lifestyle and entertainment complex barely three years ago.

Today, the vision to upgrade the trade and urban lifestyle of this fast growing city has come alive.

The Maryland area aptly illustrates the various realities of city life.

The Maryland Mall will offer citizens and visitors to Lagos alike the best of Retail, Entertainment and Lifestyle options to choose from.

    The traffic that this shopping mall will cause will be chaotic.

    The road leading there is already narrow and the traffic light also does not make it better. I hope there will be traffic wardens there most of the day to control thus ease it. All the best to Mende, Maryland, GRA and environs residences.

    My only problem with this mall is that it’s too close to the main road. This is just traffic waiting to happen and there’s always traffic in that area. I just wish they moved it further inside, it would be a lot better

    Since they started this project, i kept saying it that this is just unnecessary traffic they want to bring to the already choked up ikorodu road. All the way to ojota will be affected and people turning to ikeja, gra axis. Smh for yeye planning

    This is going to cause horrendous traffic. That Maryland roundabout already experienced heavy traffic. It’s a strategic location for money making but do we really need to suffer more traffic on that road?

    Nice one
    This is a welcome development within this sector.
    The mainland should not be left out of the “jollofing” of life as experienced by those on the Island.
    Especially for us the Shonibare estate crew who can’t be bothered to drive all the way to the Ikeja mall everytime,this is a very good one
    The Maryland Mall is also a beauty to behold,i am not very confident about the effect it would have on traffic in that area though.
    Horrendous would not begin to describe it.
    I experienced this on Saturday trying to get into the mall.

    Popped in on Saturday,quite a few stores are still being fitted out,but most of the activities are around the food court.
    Had some fantastic ice-cream from a store by the name baker street ,and also had very nice lunch at another store called Shuttles.
    The kids really enjoyed the food,but they need to speed up fit out work in the mall so as to drive necessary foot traffic there.

    I also saw a skating rink there as well. But still being set up. I am excited by this.

    As mentioned above,this is a money spinner and kudos to the brilliant brains behind this.
    But what is the solution re traffic?
    I don’t want to spend 3hrs in traffic all because I want a shawarma and ice cream.

    I won’t lie, I thought it was a new mall in MD lol. And they obviously needed to advertise specially to Nigerians online. 😀
