The Pantry Is Open!

The fancy but easy convenience store, The Pantry by Marble, is officially open! Located on Jan Smuts Avenue, Rosebank, The Pantry is revolutionising the convenience store offering.

The Pantry

22 years ago, Gary opened one of the first Super Spars in the country, which offered a ready-made food section for the first time in South Africa. “Times have changed – not only over the last 22 years, but in the last two,” says Gary. “People are expecting more from their retail experiences – and so The Pantry offers convenience and retail, but to a whole new level.

Their Retail Offering

The retail offering of The Pantry has over 6 000 items ranging from convenience foods to household products, as well as curated local artisanal and imported items.

We’ve also included a range of local artisanal products, not only to support food entrepreneurs, but to offer new diversity,” says Chef David Higgs. “We’ve got some beautiful spices and sauces with really interesting flavours, and then great cuts of meat to have with them. The thinking behind the stuff on the shelves is that you can create a basket of items to put together.

The Tasty Goods!

David and his team, have assembled an array of foods for you to enjoy and savour, including quick and easy, ready-to-eat items like cakes, bowls, salads, pasta, wraps and freshly-made pizza.

It’s something a little bit different from other shops,” he says. “The hot products are reminiscent of what you’d find at a corner café – fish and chips, prego rolls, not-your-average garage pie and rotisserie chickens. There is also a wide assortment of salad and vegetable options a day. The idea is you can easily put a meal together – Mexican, Italian, roast chicken and veg, or steak and salad.

Cakes & Pastries at The Pantry

There's also a variety of baked treats – the well-known Marble bread will be on offer alongside other loaves, croissants, muffins and biscuits. They've also whipped up a collection of tarts – take your pick from lemon meringue, berry and chocolate – quiches, apple tarte Tatin, and basque cheesecake. Also be sure to try out their signature choux pastry bun, which you won't find anywhere else, piped with passion fruit or apple crumble. Yum!

There's Even Homeware & Gifting

The homeware and gifting section of The Pantry features an array of items made especially for Marble and Saint, but also functional homeware items ideal for serving or gifting. Think along the lines of Rialheim platters and vases, Okra candles, and 100% cotton table linen from African Jacquard.

The Setting

The Pantry has partnered with GRID and Reddeco to bring the 1 000m² space to life. Natural shades of green cover the walls, a laser cut wooden trellis covers the ceiling, and Wolkberg cement tiles adorn the front of the kitchen. Retro elements of curved lines, rounded edges covered in cork and terrazzo marble counters give the space a mid-Century feel. The space is warm and welcoming, and allows visitors to feel relaxed, modern and wholesome.

The forecourt, traditionally quite dark, had been made lighter with an installation of wood slats and green foliage.

From quick convenience to thoughtful gifts, the Pantry is the new one stop. So, whether you need to grab-and-go that litre of milk because you’ve “just run out”, or you want to curate a dining experience (complete with gifts and wine), The Pantry is just the place for you.
