Safe places to shop in Gauteng for those affected by the mass lootings

The aftermath of the recent mass lootings all around South Africa continues to haunt those who stepped back and refused to engage in any of those violent protests. We are speaking for millions of people who are trying to figure out where to buy their next essentials because most shopping centres are either closed, burned down or just ransacked by angry mobs.

With businesses looted, destroyed and unable to function during the violence, the working class and their families had suffered the greatest losses. Our struggle before was having low-incomes that couldn’t buy us everything we need, but kept us alive, Currently, most people do have money to buy food and essentials, but the stores that supply those needs are shut down!

Our editorial team has tracked down a few shopping centres around Gauteng that are still up and running to try and help our readers who are in desperate need of essential good. Check them out below:

The Glen Shopping centre

Our inside sources have advised people not to use the back entrance (near Shell garage) as it is closed by centre management for safety measures and precautions. But most stores like Dis-Chem and other leading retail giants are open for business
