DURBAN - Phoenix mom, Shamini Chetty, was completely overwhelmed when told that she’d won a brand-new Nissan Almera from the Win a Car Competition at Cornubia Mall. 

When Gagasi FM DJ Heazy called her live on air to inform her of her big win, she didn’t believe him at first! 

“I really thought it was a prank call! We’ve been through immense financial strain as a family. Many would think I’m just lucky but this is a blessing. This car is an answer to my prayers,” said Chetty when she was handed the keys on Saturday, July 27. 

The General Manager of Cornubia Mall, Lara Gracie said that the competition drew thousands of entries, as it was offered exclusively to shoppers who purchased a minimum of R100 at any of the participating Cornubia Mall stores. The competition ran from June 15. Running concurrently with the exciting car handover was a competition for shoppers to win their share of vouchers worth R20 000. Those that spent just R50 at any of the participating outlets in the mall just needed to snap a picture with the Cornubia Selfie frame, login to Cornubia Mall’s official Facebook and post their picture on the Snap and Win event to stand a chance to win. This was just one of the exciting competitions and events to which shoppers can look forward to in months to come. 

The mall continues to evolve into one of the East Coast’s most exciting shopping destinations as it prepares to welcome the Pumas to the mall in the upcoming month. 

Cornubia mall opened in 2017 and offers a unique shopping experience with easy access, convenience, free parking (open and covered) as well as unlimited free Wi-Fi and a beautiful open-air Town Square; which makes this centre a must-see destination.  

The mall is perfectly located between Mt Edgecombe and Phoenix and just a short hop from the N2 interchange, with over 115 stores in entertainment, lifestyle, dining, fashion and more. The mall also has several Durban firsts, including BOUNCE Inc, Nu Metro 4DX, The Consol Store and Cycle Lab as well as a selection of national and local brands.
