While Covid protocols no longer allow Santa to pay his annual visit to the centre or the friendly elves to wrap presents, Lifestyle Centre will be gifting their customers with a complimentary Christmas photo (one per family) from the professional photobooth outside Lifestyle SUPERSPAR from 16 – 24 December. The booth will operate from 10am to 2pm daily and terms and conditions apply.

Follow the adventures of Lifestyle’s own Elfie on social media between 1 and 24 December – he’ll be having a ball around the centre, living life the Ballito Way and giving away some great festive prizes.

According to Lifestyle Centre co-owner, Bruce Rencken, “We have been through a tumultuous couple of years, but have continued to work hard at creating beautiful settings for our customers in which they can connect in a safe and spacious environment and enjoy the moment, whether it be shopping in one of our fantastic stores, enjoying a meal in one of our restaurants or simply soaking up the Ballito atmosphere. It appears that we’re in for a bumper festive season, which will hopefully not be interrupted by unforeseen incidents or measures. Shopping at Lifestyle Centre is all about the experience and we want the convenience, vibe, quality of our offerings, service of the Lifestyle family and surprises around every corner to all contribute to a great shopping experience, every time. After all, we like to think of our centre as an extension of life, the Ballito way.”
