Top Factory Shops in Johannesburg


We’re not ones to shy away from a good bargain, and we know you aren’t either! So, here is a list of Joburg’s best factory stores to help you get more bang for your buck.

It’s the time of year when our credit cards are scuffed and bruised from abuse. Here is our list of Joburg’s best clothing factory shops and outlet stores so you can still enjoy a bit of shopping.

Big L’s

Big L’s Levi’s Factory outlet located at the Woodmead Retail Park is a favourite among students, or anyone looking to up their street cred with a good pair of denims. The store mainly stocks classic tapered, skinny, straight and slim-cut jeans, however, you can find bootleg jeans too on occasion. There are also limited bits and pieces from bigger collections like the twisted fit, commuter and curve jeans. Also in stock are shirts, the odd accessory and shoes – but in very limited numbers.

Now for the big question – how much do they cost? You can get a pair of jeans for roughly R500 and a shirt for around R250, bearing in mind that it really depends on what the item is.

Address: Woodmead Value Mart, Corner Waterval Crescent and Woodlands Drive, Woodmead

Coricraft

Coricraft is one of South Africa’s favourite furniture stores and for good reason – their furniture is simple yet stunning, inspiring visitors to drop some cash at almost every visit. The real problem, however, is that we can’t all afford to fully kit out our houses in Coricraft’s fine furniture as much as we might like to. The answer? Coricraft has a factory shop in Wynberg and it goes without saying that you can get great end-of-range furniture here without breaking the bank. Tip: Like most factory shops, these are limited, end-of-range products, so it’s probably advisable to visit every few weeks.

Address: Unit A, Game Complex, corner Arkwright Avenue and 4th Street, Wynberg

Big Blue Clearance Store

Ever seen someone wearing a really clever shirt with a truly South African phrase on it and wondered where it was from? That would be Big BlueTrust us, if you’ve never popped into one of their stores, you should! Their summer gear is original and well fitting, but let’s face it, anything that cool can’t be cheap and you’d be right to assume it. That’s where the Big Blue Factory Shop comes in. They stock all the same awesome apparel at a fraction of the price. Buy a few shirts at the beginning of summer and you’ve got your tees covered for the rest of the season.

Address: 57 Third Avenue, Linden

This time of year is when our credit cards are scuffed and bruised from abuse. Here is our list of Joburg’s best clothing factory shops and outlet stores.

Geldof Chocolatiers

Attention all chocoholics: Geldof Chocolatiers is the perfect spot for you to get your chocolate fix. They make everything from Easter eggs to chocolate Santas and truffles. Luckily, they have a factory outlet in Randburg, which stocks all their delicious products at wholesale prices. We once bought a whole packet of truffles for only R30 – if that doesn’t sound like a sweet deal, we don’t know what does! Tip: Ring the doorbell a few times before giving up – they are often busy in the back making chocolate like a team of Oompa Loompas.

Address: Unit C1 Mikro Industrial Park, 17 Hammer Avenue; Strijdom Park

Forever New

We are forever in love with Forever New and for good reason! Their clothing, shoes and accessories are nothing short of a classy affair that we all want to be a part of. Whether you’re in the mood for spoils, retail therapy or gift shopping for a bestie, this store has had girls in Joburg going crazy since their release. However, their items often have a really fancy price tag which is why you need to make a stop at their factory store in Fairland. Joburg’s Darling first put us on to them, you can read her review here.

Address: World Wear Shopping Centre, Corner Beyers Naude Drive and Wilson Street, Fairland

This time of year is when our credit cards are scuffed and bruised from abuse. Here is our list of Joburg’s best clothing factory shops and outlet stores.

World Wear

World Wear is a shopping centre out in Fairland boasting a wide range of factory shops. They have everything from Timberland to Forever New and Diesel. It’s the perfect stop for anyone who’s looking for good deals on a range of popular brands. So whether it comes to clothing, shoes or accessories, this shopping centre will have you covered at a fraction of the price.

Address: Corner Beyers Naude Drive and Wilson Street, Fairland

Woodmead Retail Park

Like the World Wear centre, Woodmead Retail Park is another large shopping centre dedicated to factory shops. They sport everything from the Le Coq Sportif store, to Billabong, New Balance and Fossil. If you can’t find a deal here, you aren’t looking hard enough!

Address: Woodmead Retail Park, Corner Waterval Crescent and Woodlands Drive, Woodmead

Playtex Factory Store

Looking to get your hands on popular underwear brands but don’t want to pay an arm and a leg? Well, the Playtex Factory Store is the perfect stop for you. You can find plenty of your favourite underwear brands here, including WonderBra, SA Shock Absorber, BEAR, Playtex and She BEAR. Sure, you might have to hunt for your size, but the prices are well worth the effort, we assure you! They also have factory stores in Pretoria and Durban.

Address: Braam Street, Honeydew, Roodepoort

Beyers Chocolate Factory Shop

This is another one for our chocoholics – you can stock up on your favourite Beyers Chocolates at their factory shop in Kempton Park, Kyalami and Bedfordview. Just imagine having your own stash of Sweetie Pies, Amarula chocolates, truffles, caramel stars and much more! Seriously, this couldn’t hurt.

Address: 28 Derrick Road, Spartan, Kempton Park, Johannesburg
