120 stores are ready to hit Melbourne’s Southwest.
Gone are the days where shoppers from Werribee and its surroundings are forced to trek all the way to Melbourne’s CBD to access their favourite stores. Their dedication to shopping has been rightfully rewarded.
Pacific Werribee’s $370 million revamp is complete– the sparkling new part of the centre introduced itself to the public on Thursday July 28.
The redevelopment extends the centre by 750 metres, translating to 35,000 square-metres which houses 120 new retailers.
Of that 35,000 square-metres, Myer takes up 12,500– making it three times the size of the centre’s existing store.
A mammoth 90 brands are settling into Myer, including Topshop and MAC Cosmetics.
Swedish powerhouse H&M introduced its third Victorian store to the centre during the opening. Other retailers planting their roots include Japanese minimalist brand Uniqlo, Mecca Maxima, Seed Heritage, Peter Jackson, Sunglass Hut, Sportsgirl, and Kikki.K.
The centre’s existing Kmart and Village Cinemas have also been upgraded.
The Buchan Group, the same firm behind Chadstone Shopping Centre and Emporium Melbourne, has headed the mammoth two-year design process.
The Pacific Group’s chief executive Graham Terry told The Star Weekly that the centre’s new retailers were carefully selected to match Werribee’s demographics, bringing in “brands that Werribee has been starved of”.
Terry also added that early next year visitors can expect a new ALDI supermarket and fresh food precinct, that will replace the original Myer’s location.
