Lehohang Mofokeng, manager at Nkomo Village, said the situation was calmer at the centre on Wednesday.
This was after three stores were broken into on Monday. Mofokeng said there was a swift response from police, metro officers and armed security.
“We have a calmer situation. The community of Atteridgeville has been doing a marvellous job of protecting our malls. I wish we would have done this earlier, before we were looted. But they came on board immediately when they heard shops had been looted on Monday,” she said.
She said the potential loss of more than 700 jobs would have been devastating had the looters succeeded.
