The Stores and Malls of Johannesburg South Africa













































I thought that I would change the posting a little bit by posting some photos taken by ex-coworker and friend Julian Cohn. Mr. Cohn now resides in the northern Chicago suburbs but was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa. When Mr. Cohn returned home for a visit, he took the pictures for me at that time. The photos include several of South Africa's largest retailers and malls.

Major retailers scene:

1. Pick N Pay Hypermarkets
2. Woolworth's Departments Stores "not associated with F.W. Woolworths"
3. Checkers Supermarket
4. Edgars Department Stores
5. Okay Bizarres
6. Jet Department Store
7. Sales House Department Stores


Malls scene:

1. Balfour Park Mall
2. Killarney Mall
3. Sandton City Mall
4. Eastgate Mall
5. Downtown Johannesburg
6. Town of Delmas, South Africa " a town that is 35 miles east of Johannesburg"

Thank You Mr. Cohn for your pictures. Please forward any comments on this section.
