I was SUPER EXCITED when I first heard that my local shopping centre, Highpoint, was going to be adding 100 new stores to the centre. I was even more excited when I found out the stores would include David Jones and Topshop (squeal!).
Fast forward 18 months and the first new section of the centre “Eco Mall and Fresh Food Market” has opened.
The Eco Mall includes a fantastic range of food stores; Woolworths, Baker’s Delight, Fish Pier, Melbourne Fresh Meats, Tasti D-Lite, just to name a few.
There’s also a brand spanking new Parent’s Room, which will come as a welcome relief to all the mums who shop there. The Parent’s Room will act as both a sanctuary for parents and an engaging play area for kids.
The Parent’s Room has been awarded with a five‐star rating from the Australian Breastfeeding Association and includes a secure play area, three private feeding rooms and kitchenette complete with sink, microwave and ready hot water.
As you can see there is plenty of space for prams and kids and you can relax and feed your little one while your older children can play in the enclosed space 🙂
There are several new kid’s stores in the Mall, including Adairs Kids, Purebaby, Shoes & Sox. I picked up a fabulous quilt for my son’s new “big boy” bed from the Adairs Kid’s Sale and I’ll be heading back to Shoes & Sox to organise my daughter’s first pair of school shoes.
A few stores that you’re likely to find me in include Mozi and Sweet Box (nom, nom, nom).
I’ve also fallen head over heels in love with Daiso, which stocks a wonderful assortment of Japanese products, all priced at $2.80. It’s a treasure trove of Kawaii goodies.
In addition to the new stores there are also an additional 600 car spaces and all the carparks now utilise Smart Park technology, which means you no longer need to drive around in circles (stalking every person you see walking towards the carpark) – just follow the green arrows and look for the green lights on the ceiling which indicate where the empty spaces are (a big high five to whoever invented that).
See you there!
