The Grove opened yesterday, but I only managed to check it out today. Have to say that I'm quite impressed. Everything in an older mall like Menlyn seems quite delapidated and unmaintained in comparison. The shop décor is really modern, impressive and quite hi-tech. The taps in the bathrooms turns on automatically when you stand in front of the basins. 80% of the shops have already opened, including a 2-storey Woolworths and 2-storey @Home store. The Pick n Pay was a nightmare though, very disorganised. The mall has big double volume parking bays. And yet all that has been completed thus far is only phase one. Phase 2 is scheduled for opening in 2010, though experience has taught me that this may only happen in 2011. Although the mall does not include cinemas at present, which surprised me, I'm sure these are planned for Phase 2. Not to mention it's a walking distance from my home, always had to go to Menlyn. All in all, I love this mall!
The Grove is situated on the corners of Lynnwood and Simon Vermooten roads.
