The first shopping centre to serve Oyarifa and its environs, the Oyarifa Mall will be formally opened for business on Saturday, December 19.
The opening of the 10,000 sqm shopping centre located off the N4 Highway near the Accra-Aburi intersection will be highlighted with a Christmas Festival featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony, music, entertainment, vendors, art exhibition, and family activities.
The Oyarifa Mall is the first and only formal, organised commercial retail center to service the suburbs of Oyarifa, Adenta, Aburi, Ayimensa, Damfa, and its environs with flagship stores including Doxa Mart, Kings Bazaar, Swift Cash Forex Bureau, Tansy Ltd, Drugix Pharmacy, Latex Foam, and Ghanaye Premier.
The shopping center is being developed by Oyarifa Mall Development Company Limited, a family run business, owned and operated by Mr Peter Osei and Nana Ama Akosa Osei.
“We are excited that the mall will serve as a commercial anchor for the community. We purchased the land about four years ago and loved the serenity it posed with the mountains and views in close proximity.
“The area began showing huge promise and being in real estate development, we began to explore business ideas and opportunities that would be beneficial for the many residential estates in the area including Ubuntu Estates, Rehoboth Properties, Fiore Village, Kuottam Estates, Ashesi University, and Ayi Mensah Park which is located directly across from the Oyarifa Mall,” Mrs Osei said in an interview in Accra.
The mall will feature a grocery store, restaurants, cafes and quick-service food concepts in the food court while the lifestyle area will welcome retailers featuring fashion, home goods, pharmacy, forex, furniture, unisex adults and kids’ salon, and children's play area to provide customers with a strong variety of African and premium brands making it a premier destination.
During the Christmas Festival, Pop Up vendors will have local crafts and artisanal products available.
Oyarifa Mall's luxury design, stone and glass facade, and rooftop accented with natural light and greenery, reflects the modern architecture and upwardly mobile sensibilities of the fast-growing community of families and young professionals.
"We worked with an architect to help bring our vision to life of a property that truly stands out and uplifts the area.
“The Oyarifa Mall is for families and we encourage all to join us for the Grand Opening and Christmas Festival to shop, eat out and relax during this holiday season and beyond to experience a unique retail environment that is showcasing Ghana's beauty while also providing amenities and ultimately jobs to the area,” Nana Ama Akosa Osei stated.
The Oyarifa Mall will open daily beginning from December 19. There are a limited number of retail spaces still available for rental and pop up vendor spaces for the festival are quickly running out. The mall is managed by Flamingo Realty Gh.
