I heart Market Moves to The Hay Store at the Point Waterfront
Next Market – Spring Sale - 7 September from 9am to 2pm
Durban’s iconic hip and happening I heart Market has a new home at The Hay Store at the Point Waterfront and will celebrate its new location with a sizzling Spring Sale on Saturday, September 7 from 9am to 2pm.
“Situated in Durban’s evolving Point Waterfront, on the corner of Albert Terrace and Camperdown Road, the Hay Store is innovative urban warehouse which is exactly what we need to take the I heart Market to the next level,” says owner Anna Savage. “We are creating a welcoming community space that will be filled with fun activities and unique experiences, great food and retail therapy with heart.”
The market recently had to move from the Moses Mabhida Stadium following an unexpected high rental hike. “I realized that with this change of venue we had an opportunity to embrace the change and start implementing more experiential aspects to the Market that we had been wanting to do for a while, but were not able to do, due to venue constraints,” says Anna. “We are very excited about the move. The Waterfront has a lot going for it – Ushaka, great beaches, the North Pier at the entrance of the harbour has just been opened, The Vetchs promenade extension will be opening in the future, and there are interesting neighbours like Robsons Brewery, The Chairman Jazz Club and Ciao Bella Restaurant.”
“Our previous venue was so unique that we realized that we needed to look for another venue that was equally unique but completely different at the same time. And we have some interesting ideas which we will plan and roll out over time.”
The Hay Store is a creative space with ample outdoor areas. The craft area will be housed inside the aesthetically pleasing industrial columned warehouse and seating and eating will be set up outside in a paved courtyard space. This first market here in September will focus on its annual Spring Sale, where shoppers can hunt down some great bargains.
There is plenty on-street parking with car-guards, and uShaka parking is directly across the road with a pedestrian gate access. It is also on the People Mover route, and can be reached by bicycle or walking from the Promenade.
