It is this unique ability to cater to all tastes that Blue Route Mall, one of Cape Town’s favourite shopping centres, has taken as its own core philosophy ever since its origins in the early 1970s. While launching as a simple shopping centre, and today having reinvented itself as a complete retail, dining and entertainment experience, Blue Route Mall has nevertheless endeavoured to stay true to its promise of catering to every shopper’s needs, no matter how big or small.
In this way, Blue Route Mall, situated in the heart of the Southern Suburbs, just minutes from Claremont and the Constantia Wine Route, is a microcosm of Cape Town itself; a shopping centre that mirrors the city’s most defining feature – its ability to be everything to everyone.
