The new store is a great addition to the centre with fantastic range and variety for our customers. This is just the start of exciting openings for us, we cannot wait to open many more new retailers in the coming year, which we know our customers will love.”

A number of modern features have been integrated into the new state-of the-art Dan Murphy’s store fit out including; a cool room twice the size to stock a greater array of local and international beer, a climate controlled Vintec cabinet to keep wines at their optimum temperature, a tasting station with dedicated in-store tastings manager and new specialist sections for Whiskey, Champagne and Sparkling wine.
