Manly Harbour Village shopping centre will soon undergo a refresh and be known as “The Mall”.
Interestingly, The Mall was the original name of the village shopping centre built on the corner of Cambridge Parade and Stratton Terrace in Manly. Many locals have shared their stories of working and shopping in the building and local village stores.
Constructed in the 1960s, the original mall had a butcher, greengrocer, newsagent, general store and a barber before being home to one of Brisbane’s ‘Cash and Carry’ stores. All are very similar to the shops and services found in the shopping centre that our community knows and loves today.
With works planned to start in August, the updates to the shopping centre include improvements to roofing, floors, signage and cosmetic interior changes. The centre will remain open throughout the refresh, ensuring minimal downtime for outlets and as little disruption to shoppers as possible.
Once work commences, there may be some short interruptions to trading times. However, the good news is that Jones & Co IGA will operate as usual throughout the refresh to allow locals and visitors to continue shopping for their everyday essentials.
