whats UP at Chadstone ?

There’s no doubt about it – Chadstone Shopping Centre is “The Fashion Capital” – of Melbourne and Australia (and the whole southern hemisphere, apparently) It is huge – around 190,000 square metres (2,000,000 sq.feet) of retail. And it certainly is a great destination for all things fashion in Melbourne……

Chadstone (“Chaddy”) has always set the pace for retail in Australia – it was our first “regional shopping centre” when opened back in 1960, and has been expanding and improving ever since. The precinct currently hosts around 530 shops, 16 cinemas, 24 lanes of indoor bowling, extensive café and food facilities, day spas – all under one roof. There’s more than 9,500 car parking spaces (but just try finding an empty one in December !) In late 2009 Chadstone opened an international precinct – now home to a dozen or so of the world’s most prestigious luxury retail fashion brands. In 2010 it achieved a 20% increase in the moving annual turnover (MAT), making $1.28 billion in sales*

The latest news from Chadstone is the opening of Zara on August 8th – 1,400 sq.mtrs of fashion and accessories across 2 levels. This is the 2nd Zara store for Melbourne (their 4th for Australia – but just another one of the 5,600 Zara stores across the globe)

But even that’s not quite enough for the owners (jointly between the Gandel Group and Colonial First State Retail Property Trust) The massive Centre is currently planning it’s umpteenth expansion programme (a $520million redevelopment, including 2 floors of retail, another 2 towers for a hotel and offices, expanded dining facilities, more cinemas, more car parking… more of just about everything !)

Chadstone doesn’t often host pop up shops – vacant spaces are rare and there is a certain expectation for quality fit-outs (the Chadstone brand speaks style, design and finish… there are no half-baked concepts here…)

Bellechasse (French-inspired lingerie) currently does have a pop up boutique at Chadstone – apparently doing very well and enjoying the buzz and support of the Chadstone community ! On now – ‘till 20th August – or longer ?
