Panda Mart occupies the retail space where The Game, another South African brand used to occupy. The retail space is 8,956 sq m which is gigantic, your feet will almost give up if you try to walk all the aisles on one visit, it is just expansive.

The business model is to have everything possible under one roof, it is the most diverse shopping experience imaginable, but there is an emphasis on home decor, utility, and aesthetic products, which take the majority of the shares. Then there are tools, electronics, appliances, and surprisingly a small portion of foodstuffs and sanitary.

But importantly, what drives the majority of the shoppers is affordability, it is said to be the most affordable option currently to shop those Kamukunji items, and in an organized manner. In Kamukunji, you have to hop from one shop to another, but here it is all in one open and collective space.

The place is currently packed, and I wouldn’t recommend visiting now as you will wait up to 4 hours to get your goods checked out. It is so bad that you have to wait to even enter like you queue outside for some people to leave. Just wait till the hype fizzes out like it did with China Square

The store is currently not occupied by all proposed products, but it has over 95% occupancy at the moment. The establishment has spent over $ 7 million, which equates to over KSh1.1 Billion in the current exchange rate, so you know this is a serious place! It is rumored that a second outlet will open in late 2024 in the Karen neigborhood.

Can’t cover everything stocked at Panda Mart, but here is an overview of the major items and good categories;
