Following the devastating news that popular tourism spot Mariner’s Wharf would close its door permanently, the establishment has now announced a partial reopening from June 1.

The iconic location close to many local hearts announced today [May 31] that they will begin trading again, including not only their liquor store but also their bakery and fishmarket.

“We are thrilled to announce the partial re-opening of Mariner’s Wharf. Our Liquor Store is opening on June 1, 2020, and our Bistro takeaways, Fishmarket (for prepacks & all priced items) & Bakery will open on June 2 2020,” said the establishment on a Facebook post.

Along with the announcement the Wharf is also offering a 15% discount in their fishmarket for every patron that spend over R100. All that is needed to claim the discount is a slip from the bistro or liquor store.

To make this occasion even sweeter, if you spend R100 or more in the Bistro or Liquor Store you will get a 15% discount in the Fishmarket (until further notice) when presenting your Bistro or Liquor Store receipt.

With no definitive answer on the future of the Wharf, many locals are just happy to know that some of the stores will be trading again and hope that this means good things for the local favourite in weeks to come.
