For a city that is in the centre of the country we only have one Hyperama, Malls and shopping centres close the latest at 6pm. Why cant we have a MALL that closes late. What is worse we have people in Langehoven Park who have a shopping Centre that has Checkers,Pick n Pay & Clicks in one space.While we have to travel all over the show to get them. The more black people are there the less quality you will see. This is unacceptable. Our Provincial Government must start revamping our city and stop focusing on the upper market surbubs.

I was born in bloem and have left the province for better oppotunities currently live in Johannesburg/Pretoria. Bloemfoentein is the safest place that you can get in RSA.Pta has few malls will only shopping centers around whereas JHB Traffic is the cause for more malls and mostly all malls cleses at 6pm (Sandton,Centurion, Menlyn Menlyn, WestGate and others in Gauteng) unless you talk about food courts in all those mall.

Mimosa,Waterfront, Noordhoek (revamped). There are shoppng complex in the townships i.e twins in heidedal, kennworth center Rocklandls and the new one near kagisanong.

People in bloem like you who dont support local initiatives, i think when you vist bfn you go to towm not in this initiatives, ask me by nature of the environment/ and the vastness of Gauteng I am forced to buy in complexes that are near my place.

Please do not distort information about Bfn, Habo motho ho thebe e phatswa mme seke wa senya Bfn. Move around Gauteng you'll see that Bfn is much better that Jhb and Pta

I furtherdont understand wether you are comparing Bfn with Gaurteng Pta it is unfortunate that my thinking tells me that you are cmparing Gauteng as a province with a city. The following are cities not surburs/townships in Gauteng: PTA'JHB,Krugersdorp Germiston, Boksburg, Vanderbail, Vereening, etc. Please don't compare Bfn with a provivde

However your comparism shows that Bfn is the best if compared to a province for interest sake ask people that live in hamanskraal, Mamelodi, Attrigeville on how is Pta,ask people in Tembisa Soweto(nogal one mall), etc how is JHB. For us who travells around Gauteng we'll tell you

Be more patriotic about free state province. lastly gauteng as a province is an economic hub of South Africa, whereas BFn is the capital city of FS and PTA is the capital of the republic of SA.

Santon Gal Please be realistic about the place you are defending are you really from Sandon or are you on the other side on N1 (Alex). Please stop joking.

Knox this is an open Invitation Santon Gal wants to be a tourist in Bloem please guys dont dissapoint.

Sandon gal Bloem is not about Macufe, Ask Glen from Metro FM, Cebo from motsweding, SBu @ YFM and they will tell you. But I understand that people like from the other side of N1 you know the meanibg of Dry.

I livein Gauteng and Travel a lot mostly in South Africa you'll understant when you're from BFN. BFN is still the best

Good Evening all,
People come to Bloem thinking it has the same to offer as large cities, well it's not supposed to. Bloemfontein is unique, it's about excellent education, farming, friends, braai's and family. Not clubs and shopping mecca's.
Tourists do love Bloemfontein, that's what our guest house visitors say. They love Bloemfontein because it is open and friendly. They've even said that they don't want to come all the way to Africa to be stuck in a 5 Star Hotel. Some will want that, but others want to meet the people take in the cultures and build friendships.
That's what I think Bloemfontein is about.

Bloemfontein is still one of the jewels of South Africa. It is the safest place to live and bring up your kids. It has a fantastic hot, dry climate so every day is gorgeous! When it rains, you really appreciate it. Because it is essentially an educational centre, the people are pro-education and respect learning and a studious attitude. I grew up in Bloem and it formed the unique person I am. I wold have been a totally different person if I had grown up anywhere else. There is always a lot going on in Bloem and there's something for everyone. If you're bored in Bloem, it is because you are bored with yourself.

bloem is the best place. I don't get why would u want extended shopping hours while u spend close to R2000 only per month. What wud the extra hours be open for? Window shopping. U not rite in ur mind, time is money. That is always the case with you people, like complain about my beloved Bloem nt having facilities that u barely use if no t at all. I can't say the city doesn't have enough fill stations while i am pedestrian.
