Oriental Plaza



The Oriental Plaza is the only shopping centre in the country in which each shopkeeper owns his shop. The Plaza, one kilometre west of the city centre, opened in the mid-1970s in Fordsburg. It was a direct outcome of apartheid's grand separation schemes. Shopkeepers and their goods were relocated from nearby Vrededorp and Pageview, and offered space at the Plaza, where they bought their new shops.

At The Plaza you bargain with the boss ! Over 360 shop-owners own the Oriental Plaza. They don't need to pay exorbitant rentals that dictate their prices. So get ready to barter and get the price that you want. Don't be surprised to find prices that are 30 - 40% cheaper than elsewhere in Johannesburg.

Choose one stop comfort. With a range of merchandise unequaled in the country, The Plaza may be the only stop you'll need. Enjoy easy access from anywhere in Gauteng, excellent security and parking facilities, restaurants, an information desk and an official shoppers guide to every store.

You cannot afford to miss a visit to the Oriental Plaza !!
