Swedish retail giant, H&M, and Japan-based retailer, Uniqlo, will soon open stores at the mall, alongside an expanded Myer, which will be three times its previous size and include a range of popular brands such as Country Road, French Connection, Veronika Maine and Sportscraft.
About 30 retailers will open their doors at Pacific Werribee later this year, including popular Australian labels such as Mecca Maxima, Seed Heritage, Sportsgirl, Peter Alexander, Decujba and Bardot. The centre will also become home to a new 800sqm Cotton On store, jewellery retailer Swarovski and stationery brand, Kikki.K.
“We embarked on the centre’s development with the vision of evolving the centre into a one-stop fashion, food and entertainment destination, and it’s the introduction these great global and local brands that will create a well-rounded offer that’s comparable to that of metropolitan Melbourne,” said Graham Terry, chief executive of Pacific Shopping Centres.
“We’re confident that the new Pacific Werribee will make an impactful difference on the lives of locals and we can’t wait to see the community’s response over the coming months as the centre nears completion,” Terry said.
Myer CEO Richard Umbers said he is looking forward to opening a modern Myer store in Pacific Werribee.
“As part of our new Myer strategy, we are focused more on our customer than ever before,” Umbers said. “We’re looking forward to opening a modern Myer store in our new location at Pacific Werribee, and we think local shoppers will love the new brands we’ll have on offer, that are specifically tailored to their lifestyles.”
Pacific Werribee has been under redevelopment since March 2014. The introduction of the new retailers will be the final stage of redevelopment adding to the current offer which includes an Urban Diner featuring over 15 specialty restaurants and Gold Class Village Cinema facilities, as well as a retail precinct housing a brand new Target and over 50 specialty stores.
