Building value through brand experience

We believe that retail should provide an opportunity for brands to re-tell their stories. In the spirit of Ubuntu, value is built through the experiences not of single brands, but a community of brands. The SOKO family has many valuable stories to share. 

The new second space for our community

In uncertain times, your brand needs room for adjustment. You might suddenly need more/less physical space, or more/less e-commerce distribution. SOKO values responsiveness and built a system that allows for dynamic leasing and support services, providing your brand with the leeway to manage economic stress or brand redirection. 


Rosebank Mall

Introducing the first district, launched 30 July 2021

You’ll find our first space at the centre of all the action at Rosebank Mall. It’s the first of many to come, and what a good place to start – in the bustling heart of Jozi. This location resonates with one of the SOKO pillar principles of creating a regenerative space, a space that encourages constant movement towards fresh ideas.
