JB Hi-Fi, Max Brenner to open at Australia Fair

Australia Fair RedevelopmentMajor retail brands JB Hi-Fi and Max Brenner will open new stores at Australia Fair shopping centre on the Gold Coast later this year, as part of the Southport location’s $25 refurb.

The home entertainment retailer, JB Hi-Fi will be located next to Telstra on the ground floor, and Max Brenner will be near the Scarborough Street entry.

Ramon Otten, Australia Fair general manager, said the new tenants will enhance the centre’s offering for shoppers.

“We are thrilled to welcome JB Hi-Fi and Max Brenner – both household brands known and loved by Australian families – to Australia Fair’s retail family, at this very exciting time of our redevelopment,” Otten said.

“With so many new retailers coming on board, we are in the throes of the evolution of our centre, with major works to both our interior and exterior creating a whole new look and feel for shoppers.”

Otten said the centre’s redevelopment is on track to be unveiled ahead of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.

Work is under way for the expansion of Coles into the former outdoor food court, with the new entrance opening early September and the grand unveiling of the new look Coles set to open before Christmas.

The exterior facelift is creating a contemporary facade for the retail, dining and entertainment complex, with the new structure to feature lighting and fresh signage bearing Australia Fair’s new branding.

Other new tenants joining Australia Fair’s retail offering who have recently opened at the centre include Colette by Colette Hayman, Ted Ross, U Grill, Joy Stylist and Green Valley Butcher. Brazilian restaurant and bar The Grill House, Vintage Grind, Stella Saigon Street Food, Chikor, Wrap and Roll and LiquorLand are also set to open their doors over the next few months, while several existing traders are relocating or undergoing a fresh fit-out.

Stage one of the redevelopment project is expected to be completed by Christmas.
