Visitors can enjoy our selection of over 500 stores, first-to-market pop-ups, delicious dining options and magical Christmas experiences to share with loved ones.”
“For more than 60 years, Chadstone has been the one-stop shop for Christmas. With longer opening hours, an abundance of gift ideas and more entertainment than ever before, visitors can find everything they need under the one roof this festive season,” said Whitehead.
After the year that was, capturing magical memories with loved ones is more important than ever, and Chadstone’s exclusive and socially distanced Santa Photography experience will return to The Fashion Capital from Thursday 18, November until Christmas Eve.
