The one day a year dedicated entirely to love and romance will be celebrated in style at Maerua Mall this February, with a Valentine’s Day Gift Market in the Mr Price atrium from 9 to 14 February.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect time of year to say “I love you” to those who matter most, and what better way to show your love than with a gift? Visitors to Maerua Mall will find stalls selling flowers, chocolates, confectioneries and a range of other covetable Valentine’s Day gifts to suit every pocket, and will also be treated to Valentine’s Day sales at participating retailers.
“Our goal is to make it easy and enjoyable for shoppers to find the perfect gifts to show their appreciation for those around them on Valentine’s Day,” says Carel Fourie, CEO of Oryx Properties, owners of Maerua Mall.
To show love to its customers, on 10 February Maerua Mall is teaming up with FreshFM to bring Valentine’s cheer to the hearts of a few selected shoppers. Cupid will be on duty from 10 am to 3 pm looking for the happiest couples and picking up the bill for them, up to the value of N$500. FreshFM will also be broadcasting live from Maerua’s market, spreading the love all over Namibia.
And the romance options don’t stop there. If it’s a great eatery for a special date that you’re looking for, the mall’s food court is the place to be. From coffee shops like Wimpy, Dulce Café and Yealis Bistro and pizza joints like Debonairs and eateries like Capello, John Dory’s and Peppercorn Grill & Steak, Maerua Mall has something for every taste and occasion.
If you need a break from the kids while you enjoy a quiet Valentine’s movie date with your significant other, there are five Ster-Kinekor silver-screen cinemas to choose from. Otherwise, bring the whole family along to the brand-new Family Entertainment Centre – which offers fun activities for the young and the young-at-heart, including an “Around the World”-themed 18-hole glow-in-the-dark mini-golf course, trampolines, tenpin bowling and more. “The Family Entertainment Centre, built just last year, is one of our proudest achievements, offering fun for the whole family,” says Fourie.
Shopping at Maerua Mall is always a pleasant experience. With over 120 outlets, it’s the second-biggest shopping centre in Namibia, with some of the most exciting flagship stores in the country – but its design ensures that nobody ever feels crowded. “Easy accessibility for each and every customer, even during the busier times of the year, is of the utmost importance to us,” Fourie says. The mall is designed to be not only ultra-convenient – with four entrances and over 2 000 parking bays, including dedicated bays for the elderly and disabled as well as for parents with young children – but also ultra-stylish, having recently undergone a complete facelift, bringing a contemporary look and feel to Windhoek’s original shopping centre.

Digital marketing: multi-touch attribution
19/09/2019 - 13:43
The effective tracking of digital marketing campaigns is not as easy as initially thought. One question that often pops up is: at what point did consumer conversion take place? During a campaign, it’s difficult to attribute this correctly, especially with multiple touchpoints such as display and native advertising, sponsored social posts, video ads on mobile or paid-for search results all running consecutively.
