Located in Waterfall, found between Johannesburg and Pretoria, the 2,623 square metre store forms part of the Mall of Africa, which opened April 28.

South Africa is Cotton Group's fastest growing market globally. The group hopes to double its business in the country over the next three years to 350 stores.

“Our South African operations have reported double-digit growth every month since opening our first store here in 2011,” said Johan van Wyk, Cotton On Group South Africa country manager.

“The region is a key contributor to reaching our overall growth target of 20 per cent year on year."

Factorie and Typo, ​two additional retailers in the group's portfolio, will open separate standalone stores in the mall in the near future.

The shopping centre currently holds more than 300 shops, including major international retailers Zara, H&M and Forever 21.
