Pacific Fair launches Fresh Food Market
and youth fashion retailers
In August, Pacific Fair unveiled the new Fresh Food Market and a collection of youth fashion retailers in the next stage of its $670-million redevelopment. This launch takes Pacific Fair one step closer to seeing the entire centre transformed into the leading shopping destination in Queensland and the fourth largest shopping centre in Australia.
Managing Director of AMP Capital Shopping Centres, Bryan Hynes, officially marked the opening with a short address in front of the local business community, local residents and centre retailers. Also present for the celebrations were Mayor, Tom Tate and Brad Bolin, Group Manager, Northern Gold Coast Supermarkets from Woolworths and MC, Libby Stone.
The Fresh Food Market opened with more than 20 stores including a full-line Woolworths, Breadtop, Chi-Ran Vegetarian Bar, Grain & Grocer, Hakataya Ramen, Healthy Life, Hero Sushi, Pacific Fresh Fruit and Soul Origin. On Level 1, 15 youth fashion stores also opened including a new-format Big W, Industrie, Nike, Rebel, Universal and Vans. In a win for local shoppers a new section of the car park also opened with five levels and approximately 2,200 new car spaces are now available.
Shoppers were also invited to continue celebrating the opening over the weekend, with four days of special events and offers including a visit to Rebel Sport by the NRL Gold Coast Titans players and Libby Trickett, an appearance from ironman Shannon Eckstein at Apex and live entertainment from a selection of DJs at Vans.
