A few hours left before Chadstone Closes on Boxing Day 2012
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 04:31 pm By
Shoppers have been scrambling to find the best bargains during Chadstone's Boxing Day Sale.
Many great deals are on offer, with some retailers offering up to 60% off.
Some stores were so popular that they required queueing at their entrance and a security guard to prevent overcrowding in the store and also possible theft.
Like Christmas Eve, Boxing Day was as hectic as ever, with queues on Middle Rd stretching all the way out to Monash Freeway.
The Centre generally closes at 10pm tonight (Boxing Day)
, although Myer and David Jones will continue their Boxing Day trading until midnight.
In Victoria, shoppers are expected to spend over $588m on Boxing Day. Consumer Affairs Minister Michael O'Brian has reminded everyone that retailers with a 'No Refunds' policy on sale items may be illegal. Consumer law applies equally for items bought at their normal price as well as when 'on sale'. Consumers retain their right to a refund or exchange if goods they purchase are faulty, defective or not as described. Individual stores or shops have the discretion on whether they will issue refunds or exchanges for 'change of mind' purchases.
Boxing Day Parking at Holmesglen TAFE
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 10:37 am By
Chadstone Shopping in conjunction with Holmesglen TAFE have organised off-site parking for shoppers.
Shoppers can park at the TAFE located on Waverley Rd (enter via Golfers Drive). A regular shuttle bus will take shoppers to the Centre via Chadstone Rd. With over 400 carparking spaces, it is a good alternative to hunting down a space at the crowded Centre carparks.
For those shoppers who insist on parking at the shopping centre, the Centre advises shoppers to utilise the top level (rooftop) car parks for ease of parking. This is because motorists prefer not to park in the open with the sun beating down on their cars.
ChadstoneShopping Website Crashes: Overwhelming number of visits
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 09:28 am By
Early this Boxing Day 2012, the Chadstone Shopping Centre website crashed.
Instead of the usual website, customers were greeted by a "Temporarily Unavailable" message after a long wait. It could not have come at a
worse time, especially when customers are using the site to check for Boxing Day trading hours before making the trip. The sheer amount of web traffic has
brought the website down to its knees.
On the physical front, vehicle traffic is also building rapidly.
Traffic Jams are now spreading out from the Centre, with long queues
on Warrigal Rd.
As a courtesy to shoppers, we have the 2012 Boxing Day Hours
2012 Chadstone Boxing Day Sales: Myer & David Jones Opened from 5am
Wed, 26 Dec 2012 08:09 am By
Boxing Day 26th December 2012: 7am until 10pm
Both of the major department stores at Chadstone were open at the crack of dawn
this morning for their traditional Boxing Day Sales. Myer and David Jones opened their doors at 5am.
The rest of the shops and stores at the Centre were generally open
from the official opening time of 7am. The Centre will close at 10pm.
Many retailers are offering large discounts, with some offering
up to 60% off the normal price.
Traffic this morning was generally light, although as the morning progresses,
it is expected to become busier, with peak times expected from 11am until 3pm.
The Centre will be open every day throughout New Years Eve and New Years Day
With Boxing Day being one of the most critical shopping days for retailers, Centre manager Daniel Sutton hopes to have at least the same number of shoppers as last year. He said "Last year, we did over 165,000 customers through the day on Boxing Day and we'd be expecting similar numbers this year".
