As part of an ongoing programme to revamp its tenant mix, West Hills Mall has added six new tenants to offer a new and exciting bouquet of shopping experience to customers.
The new entrants are UK Brands’ fashion stores that include Jocent, home décor outlet Banana Home, the home furniture dealer AJ Boaz, health & beauty specialist Divine Organic Hub and the mall’s only African food vendor, the Addos, who have become the toast of shoppers and customers since they began trading.
UK Brands is a new retail chain that entered the Ghanaian market in November 2019 and as the tenant puts it, aims at becoming the top clothing retailer in Ghana offering UK-branded clothing at affordable prices.
UK Brands’ mission is to provide the average Ghanaian with quality clothing and use its business to radically change the thinking that quality brand new clothing at the shopping malls must be expensive.
The store currently offers a wide range of clothing, including everyday High Street UK brands: Marks & Spencer, F&F,
Next, Gap, Peacock, Mothercare, Boohoo, PrettyLittleThing, Topshop, Calvin Klein, Primark and many others at incredibly affordable prices.
Jocent, the other fashion store, is a successful, Ghanaian-owned retail outlet which initially tested the market with stores in Adum, Kumasi and later transitioned to trading in the malls beginning with its home centre, Kumasi City Mall, before joining West Hills Mall last November.
At West Hills Mall, Jocent’s speciality has been to provide quality clothes for ladies, men and kids from all over
Accra at affordable prices.
The magnet in Jocent’s shop floor at West Hills mall may be the varied category of clothes on offer every day of the week: casual, formal, smart casual, shoes and underwear for all sizes and ages.
The Addos, an afro café and restaurant, literally ‘pounded’ its way into West Hills Mall’s Food Court in June last year, headlining with what its patrons insist is the most irresistible fufu grub in the whole of Accra. Fufu at the Addos is served with “any soup of your choice”.
The restaurant also serves a range of African favourites such as beans and plantain (Red-red) with fish or chicken. The Addos say they are particular about affordability and, therefore, in spite of their high standards, price their whole meals from as low as GH¢25.00.
Banana Home, a superbly stocked home deco store, joined the West Hills Mall family early December… just in time to avail itself to waiting patrons during the festive season. The store has never looked back since then and continues to charm its teeming customers with a wide variety of assorted electronic gadgets and home décor.
The mall’s newest furniture people, AJ Boaz, is already a household name at West Hills Mall having entered the retail market with their first store, a footwear shop, two years ago. The new store deals exclusively in quality upholstery, living room furniture and accessories.
Another exciting new entrant to West Hills Mall is Divine Organic Hub, a health and beauty specialist which, after a successful exhibition at the mall, decided to have a permanent presence for the benefit of its patrons.
They opened for business in November last year offering a rare range of organic products, including the black seed, flax seed, chia seed, coriander seed, carrot oil, avocado oil and rosemary oil.
Fulfilling a promise to patrons
It may be recalled that in August last year following the expiry of the lease agreement of the Foschini Group, West Hills Mall’s management promised to introduce a new and exciting mix of local and international tenants to serve its customers.
The management affirmed that it was determined to review strategies on an ongoing basis to replace all vacancies that emerged in the course of business, with brands which resonated with Ghanaians and met demands of the local market.
Since then, West Hills Mall has been busy, rolling out exciting promotions and campaigns, as well as quality entertainment programmes which endorse its reputation as Accra’s most compelling family mall and the capital’s best destination for safe, secure, one-stop shopping and recreation.
