Queensland’s newest sub-regional shopping centre, Yamanto Central, is hitting another major milestone. The centre which launched during the pandemic is celebrating its first birthday, with the next 12 months set to be a big period of growth as the medical sector comes on line and the new dining precinct comes together.
Yamanto Central, owned by JMK Retail, is located on the corner of Warwick Road and Pisasale Drive in Yamanto, Ipswich. Since its initial opening, the centre has continued to open new and innovative stores and retail concepts, and delivered strong results. The centre includes a fitness and exercise precinct, a retail precinct and a soon to open medical precinct, dining precinct and family entertainment area.
“The first phase of the Yamanto Town Centre has been a smashing success,” JMK Retail General Manager, Vicki Leavy said.
“Since swinging the doors open 12 months ago, we have been progressively opening new stores and launching new retail concepts to offer our shoppers an amazing retail experience. This has included our main floor of retailers and our health and fitness offerings.
“From showcases of community art, pop up stores, to car and shopping giveaways, we have been busy building our connections with the community and support of local charities, and the retail sector more broadly.”
“We are proud to provide three fantastic health and fitness options to our community that are ideal for all ages and fitness levels. Rackley Swimming is passionate about teaching children to develop the necessary skills and confidence they need to be safe in and around water. Club Lime, located on the first level, boasts the brand’s newest format with all the latest equipment. It is also one of Australia’s most popular health clubs with more than 30,000 members nationally. Finally, HIIT Republic is a boutique functional fitness class-based centre with a fully equipped gym as well. Whatever your fitness level and fitness aspirations, you’ll find your match here,” said Leavy.
Yamanto Central has involved a progressive opening and rollout strategy to ensure careful focus on all the different elements of its offering to the community and importantly to ensure businesses operating in the centre are given the focus, attention and support they need to flourish.
“We have achieved so much in 12 months. It is hard to believe that we are already celebrating our first birthday,” Leavy said.
“We offer a range of family-friendly amenities, namely our fully furnished baby care rooms so that you can feed and change your little ones in a cosy and convenient dedicated space,”
“With so many great stores including brands we all know and trust such as Kmart, Priceline, Coles, along with so many other wonderful specialist traders including fashion stores, health, beauty and wellness stores and services, and casual dining options, Yamanto Central has become the ‘go to’ shopping centre for many people across the region.
“And this year’s Mother’s Day is no different. We are keeping things fun and fresh with lots of giveaways to not only celebrate Mother’s Day but also our one year anniversary.
“As we reflect on the success we have had at Yamanto Central in the past year, we would really like to thank our customers and amazing community. We look forward to bringing our shoppers even more new shops and services as we continue to build one of the best sub-regional shopping centres in Queensland,” said Leavy.
