Embrace The New Normal.

As we get closer to the final quarter of the year, we encourage you to embrace the new normal with your arms wide open. Get rid of the old and welcome in the new with good times at Central Square Menlyn Maine.

Cultural commentator and author, Charles Eisenstein once said ‘ …we are being born into a new normal: a new kind of society, a new relationship to the earth, a new experience of being human’

So what does the new normal look like? How about appreciating the small stuff? Savouring moments with loved ones, making time for yourself and most importantly basking in the rich and local destinations that our country has to offer. You can enjoy good times with your loved ones by organising coffee and lunch dates or dinner with a view over at our piazza! Head over to Woolies Café, Old Town Italy, Ribs & Burgers, Tashas, Mythos, Turn ‘n Tender, KOI and Starbucks to connect again.

The other bright side of this new normal is the ability for us to finally slow down and take everything in. When was the last time you took time for yourself? When was the last time you de-cluttered your closet to make space for the new you? We challenge you to create self-care days at least once a week. Book yourself in at our health and beauty stores for the ultimate day of relaxation and luxury. If you want to set the mood at home, pick up everything you need at Clicks, @home, Incanda, Rain Natural Skincare and Beetroot Inc. 

We’re not called the green city for nothing, so take some time out on the weekends and come enjoy lovely walks and artwork for your pleasure and relaxation. Pretoria is also filled with natural wonders, from the breathtaking mountains and hiking trails to the blooming Jacaranda trees and Arum Lilies painting the town with their majestic nature.

We are spoilt for choice when it comes to enjoying local during the hotter months this year. 

So make sure you’re well equipped for those days out, whether it’s a picnic, braai, road trip, mountain trail or sundowners at the Piazza and get everything you need to enjoy the outdoors at Central Square Menlyn Maine!

Cheers to the new normal. From where we’re looking, things are looking up!
