Perth Shopping Centre Announces $63 Million Upgrade

A Perth shopping centre has announced a $63 million upgrade with 20 new retailers including Kmart.

Ellenbrook Central in Perth’s north-east will undergo an 11,000 square metre expansion bringing the centre’s total offering to more than 120 retailers and brands.

The centre, which already boasts Aldi, Best & Less, Big W, Coles and Woolworths is hoping to capitalise on the area’s rapidly growing population.

Centre Manager Mike Barrington said: “This expansion is an exciting new chapter for Ellenbrook Central as we’re growing together with our local community.
