The Mandurah Forum came to life on Thursday morning with local residents and visitors coming to see the unveiling of the centre’s redevelopment stage two.
The new stage of the $350 million redevelopment has brought big brands to the centre such as Kathmandu, Target, City Beach, Australian Geographic, QBD The Bookshop, Games World, JB Hi-Fi, and Valley Girl among others.
It has also seen 11 new health, beauty and wellbeing stores opening their doors, and fashion brands Ally Fashion, Dotti, Betts, and Uniquely Lorna Jane returning to the centre.
Customers looking for a bit of bling will now also be able to check out new five jewellery stores, including Michael Hill, Angus & Coote, Mazzucchelli’s, Zamels and Angel Body Jewellery.
The new area also features a new urban market section with fresh produce stores, a butcher, a seafood shop and a brand new Miss Mauds cafe.
The centre will celebrate the opening of the second stage of the redevelopment with four days packed with family activities, free tastings, live entertainment and cooking demonstrations starting on July 27.
The next major redevelopment launch will be the opening of new rooftop carpark late 2017, with David Jones, a new alfresco area, an indoor playground and a food court opening in 2018.
