Refreshments will also be available on the rooftop from the Ster-Kinekor stall.

The mall says it is a Covid-19 compliant, SAFE certified shopping centre. As regulated with the level 2 restrictions, masks are compulsory and should be worn correctly at all times when people are outside their vehicles.

Social distancing must also be practised. The venue will have sanitising stations located throughout the drive-in and should be used frequently.
