Yamanto Central, one of Queensland’s most exciting and long-awaited retail developments, will officially open its doors on Thursday 8 April.
Anchor retailers, Coles and Kmart will both start trading on 8 April 2021 at 7am, welcoming shoppers to their stores to take part in their opening celebrations.
The centre will offer a broad mix of retail outlets as well as a health and wellness precinct and an outdoor dining area that will accommodate up to 300 people.
As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, store openings will be staggered and a handful of specialty stores will complement the early opening of anchor tenant Coles and Kmart, providing shoppers with the a more personalised experience.
Mayor Teresa Harding, who toured the centre recently, said the upgrades would support a prosperous and thriving community as Ipswich experiences unprecedented growth.
JMK retail general manager Viciki Leavy said she is delighted to announce the early opening of Yamanto Central.
“Oddly COVID has provided us with a novel set of circumstances,” she said.
“It has enabled our team of builders to fast track development and construct the centre at a cracking pace well ahead of our original schedule.
“We’re incredibly excited as the 8th of April will see Coles and Kmart fling open their doors to a highly expectant community in preparation for our grand opening event.”
Yamanto Central is expected to set the standard in retail innovation for the region.
Coles and Kmart stores will feature some of the retailers’ latest interactive shopping experiences across displays, layout and grocery offerings.
