Plaza opening on track
THE Wonthaggi Plaza is set to open its doors in the first week of December, with a date to be confirmed within the next fortnight.
Lloyd Williams, director of Polaris Property, the company in charge of the development, said the project was on target to open in time for Christmas.
“Building is not easy and there are always issues, but we’re on track,” he said.
“The building is water tight and we’re doing plastering works in the mall and floor tiling.”
Mr Williams said major retailers, Coles and Target, had both taken handover two weeks ago, while Best and Less and The Reject Shop took handover yesterday (Monday).
“There are still four vacant speciality shops and we’d love to get a hairdresser, a fish and chips shop and a newsagency,” he said.
The official opening of the plaza will be celebrated with opening specials from many of the retailers, and Mr Williams said they would announce who is going to open the centre in the coming weeks, with the mystery guest described as a “local identity”.
When asked if he was excited about the opening, Mr Williams replied “Of course!”
“It will be the first enclosed mall in South Gippsland, and we think it brings something new to the region,” he said.
