The Colony Shopping Centre is a village shopping centre at 345 Jan Smuts Avenue, Craighall Park. Located
on the corner of Rothsay Avenue, this local shopping centre houses several restaurants and fast food outlets, many quaint speciality shops,
and one of the few clinics where you can donate blood. It
must be one of the rare centres not to have a supermarket as its anchor
tenant, but it does have a Baby City, a club, and a pub. There is one ATM (Standard Bank), but no banks.
The club, recently opened and already popular, is Vicky
Cristina's Restaurant, and it contains the Conquista Bar.
Under stairs, so to speak, we find the colourful traditional pub,
The Colony Arms. They don't dance there, but there's a Fred
Astaire Dance Studio opposite. If that seems too secular, the
Buddhist Centre upstairs will teach you meditation. Education
is also represented by the Kumon centre teaching Maths and English.
Bookdealers interleading with Hodges can satisfy both your reading
and eating needs. Speaking of eating, we have Steers and
Debonairs downstairs, and Indian and Chinese restaurants on the top
The centre is on a steep slope and has been built on several
levels. The first entrance you come to when driving North on
Jan Smuts Avenue leads to a square with limited parking, which we
have arbitrarily called the "Ground Floor" below. From there you can
drive through under an archway to extensive parking at the back of
the centre. This parking has an exit to, and an entrance from,
Rothsay Avenue. If you skip the first parking entrance, there
is a second one just before Rothsay Avenue, also with limited
parking, serving what we have called the "Lower Level" in the
Parking: There are open-air parking bays with plenty of mature trees
offering some shade, and security personnel and car guards in the car park. All
parking is free of charge.
Trading Hours: Mainly Monday to Friday 09:0017:00 (9 am to 5 pm) and
Saturday 09:0013:00 (9 am to 1 pm). The restaurants and
some shops open for longer hours, Sundays and
