We’re committed to providing you with access to the household necessities and quality fresh produce you need during these unprecedented times. That’s why on Thursday 26 March we’ll be opening The Marketplace as planned.
The Marketplace is an open-air style market that includes our much-anticipated new ALDI supermarket, a new-look TerryWhite Chemmart, and a mix of more than 20 new and familiar stores including fresh food providores, specialty grocers and grab-and-go eateries.
As we navigate the Covid-19 health emergency together, we believe everyone in our community – particularly its most vulnerable members – should benefit from these new stores and services. We are therefore implementing additional security measures and have strengthened our hygiene precautions ahead of the opening for the wellbeing of all our customers and retail staff.
Our staff will be temporarily limiting entry to The Marketplace via the north-west doors (near Woolworths on the Melton Highway) and carefully managing the number of people inside at one time in keeping with social distancing guidelines in place while you wait. Click here for further details.
We ask for your support in making sure everyone enjoys safe and respectful access to what they need at The Marketplace and thank you in advance for your patience should wait times be longer than normal.
Our dedicated team and hardworking retail partners have put in a huge effort over the past 12 months to deliver The Marketplace before Easter and we remind you that stores will run smoothest if we each take only what we need.
While some retailers (including ALDI) have imposed buying caps on certain products and altered their opening hours in order to maintain stock levels, it is more important than ever to remember that we are all one community and to treat those around you with compassion and dignity.
Please be assured that significant infection-prevention measures are being taken to safeguard your health in line with the latest directives from the Australian Government and relevant authorities.
We have strengthened our already-stringent cleaning processes at the centre, increasing the frequency of our cleaning rotations and sanitisation of high-touch spots such as railings and shopping trolleys. You will have noticed that we have also introduced hand sanitisation stations at key points throughout the centre.
We encourage you to check our website regularly in this rapidly changing environment and to appreciate that retailers may require extra time to carry out cleaning and replenishment processes.
