Over 200,000 shoppers flowed through Chadstone in 34 hour trade

Thu, 24 Dec 2015 12:00 am By Admin

The doors have closed at Chadstone Shopping Centre at 6pm after a marathon 34 hours of frenzied shopping, with around 200,000 people walking through the doors.

Centre Manager Tony Rafaniello says it was busy across the board. He said "I wouldn't say [it was] one particular item; we've got 500 stores so we go right across the spectrum."

"Everywhere was busy wherever there was technology, right through to fashion, toys. I wouldn't pick one particular item."

Chadstone Management: Custome Parking Comes First Wed, 23 Dec 2015 12:00 am By Admin

Anthony Rafaniello revealed he parks off-site, along with other Centre staff. "Every customer comes first." He has therefore hired the parking spaces at Holmesglen TAFE for 10 days, covering the leadup to Christmas and also the Boxing day sales period. Staff use a shuttle bus (every 10 minutes) to travel to and from their cars. This strategy ensures customer parking is maximised.

Mr Rafaniello also recommended public transport as an option. "In August we opened a new bus interchange and we are now serviced by 14 bus lines, 9 of which start and stop at Chadstone".

"We've also opened up a new entry from Dandenong Road, with a new express ramp into the new carparking level"

Chadstone 'Food Truck' park under construction Fri, 06 Nov 2015 12:00 am By Admin

On the site of the former bus interchange (outside between the main entrance and the Coles carpark), Chadstone have started to transform the area into a new 'Food Truck Park'. This new concept will bring outdoor style dining to Chadstone, complimenting the indoor food courts.
