About Us

Please remember to wear a mask at all times and to maintain a distance of 1,5 metres from other shoppers. Hands must be sanitised when entering the centre. 

Sanlam Centre Empangeni is more than a shopping destination, it’s an exciting meeting place for the community with an offering of stores to suit every need. With four levels of fashion, food, services and everything in between, our 100 plus shops deliver a huge variety to the uMhlathuze region.

Situated on Maxwell and Commercial Road, this buzzing shopping destination is just off the R34 (John Ross Highway) which leads to the R102 and N2 North and South. It’s extremely accessible by taxi, bus or vehicle and is only 20 minutes from Richards Bay, 30 minutes from Kwambonambi and 50 minutes from Matubatuba and Eshowe.

We love to make shopping a pleasure for the region and have loads of fun activities on the go. Sanlam Centre Empangeni was built in 1972 and has been through several expansions and renovations over the years to improve the overall retail offering and fulfil the growing needs of the public.

Be wise. Sanitize. 

In these uncertain times, we understand that we all need to work together to avoid the spread of COVID-19. 

We, at Sanlam Centre Empangeni, have decided to take an immediate and proactive response to the imminent threat of the virus. 

We have installed sanitation stations at the entrances of the mall, whereby the guards will now be sanitizing the hands of all customers and tenants entering the centre. 

Our cleaners will be working around the clock to ensure that the centre and the ablutions remain sanitized and our tenants will be taking the necessary steps to ensure the safety of all they come into contact with. 

The well-being of our customers and tenants is of the highest importance to us; so we would like to thank you for your understanding and for playing your part in helping to slow the virus down and creating a shopping environment that is clean and safe. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

We wish good health for you and your family over the coming weeks and we look forward with hope as very proud South Africans.
