Just a shopping centre with various nice or not so nice shops for basics or something you've forgotten on your hols. Don't imagine you could spend more than an hour in here but it serves a purpose.

Please Please would the powers that be UPGRADE the public restrooms. They are a disgrace to a shopping center like this. A lot of people visit The Bridge side; major chain stores yet the rest rooms are a mare. Paint peeling. Toilet filthy (change your cleaning company perhaps). Doors do not close. Basins disgusting. The list is very long. Hope... More

A big sprawling shopping centre with a rather confusing layout. Not my cup of tea at all. I needed a snooze after going there. It was exhausting.

Recent violence outside, overcrowded and dirty inside. If visiting from abroad I would recommend staying away from this mall.

What on earth were the developers thinking when they re-designed the mall. The new "parking lot" layout is a cluster b*gger up of note; not only is the new design confusing and ridiculous, there are now fewer parking bays and the "roads" between are so narrow I had to do a 6 point turn to try and get out the...

Horrible mall - crowded, dusty, just generally bad. Stay away, this is no "attraction". You are better off shopping somewhere else.

That's pretty much all I can say. Everything I needed was there: CNA, Clicks with pharmacy, Woolworths. There's nothing fun or exciting about it

The mall opened in the late 70s on the site of a race course and was the first proper American style mall in PE although at the time it was really quite small compared to its current size. It has grown to about 4 times its original size with other shops on the margins in the road around. There are... More

The renovations and new entrance are very impressive, but it's a little too late to revive the malls reputation. Yes there is a great selection of shops, but as if the the pick-pocketing, and shoplifting and general crime isn't off putting enough, you do not want to have to use the bathrooms! Yuck! I'm sure you could have spared some... More

Greenacres used to be a pleasant Mall to visit, but over the years, it has lost its charm, the more up market shops have located to other malls in Port Elizabeth. The parking lots have been taken over by taxis and with the expansion of the centre taking place, parking spaces are inadequate for the demand.The bad publicity over the... More
