The name is a memento!
Students of Luanshya history know that this name was derived from Roan Antelope which explorer William Collier shot and eventually the company, Roan Antelope Copper Mines Ltd, which operated from the nineteen twenties to around 1990’s, was named after it.
Property developers were Z-Mart Group of Companies and Mr Jigensh Soni AKA, Jigo were some of the investors who pumped money into the Luanshya Mall.
For quite some time, Luanshya town has had standalone supermarkets such as Pick n Pay and Shoprite (Shoprite has now a second outlet in the new shopping mall), but not a shopping mall.
Pick n Pay (The image on the right) hasn’t yet opened an outlet in the mall.
The shop is found on the same road as the Luanshya Mall but on the right at the junction of Independence Avenue and the road leading out of Luanshya.
