If you're looking for a place to do your grocery shopping, have a meal or a snack, meet friends, and park free of charge, then visit this community shopping centre on Rivonia Road directly opposite Alon Road (Fouche Motors, formerly Kunene Brothers BMW).

There's a Woolworths Food downstairs alongside Clicks.  Food Lovers Market (shown in the photo) has closed, so the upstairs anchor tenants are now the reliable Morningside Dispensary and the enjoyable Piza e Vino Restaurant. The smaller food outlets on the lower level (Kauai Juice and Kong Tai Chinese Restaurant) add variety.

Open air parking is free of charge and plentiful on three levels.

GPS Coordinates: -26.07522, 28.06481

In mid-2011 the Wedge had a rebranding exercise and a new logo, and a bit of a spruce-up.

Why is it called the Wedge?

The simple reason is that it's on a wedge-shaped stand.  The more sinister explanation is that this rezoning was the "thin end of the wedge" of commercial development in this residential area, long fought-against by residents, but eventually lost to an uncaring ANC-dominated municipality greedy for extra income.
