Centre Marketing Updates
During this difficult time, we are placing the utmost importance on the health and safety of our employees, guests, and customers, working within the confines of directions from the government. Our centre remains open to allow our guests and the local community to benefit from the essential services, which remain open to the public.
So that all our guests can continue to safely benefit from these essential services we are reminding them to adhere to the government’s guidance on social distancing to reduce social interaction between people and help reduce the transmission of Coronavirus (COVID-19):
- Do not enter our centre if you are experiencing any of the COVID-19 symptoms
- Maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from all other members of the public
- Strictly observe the stores’ social distancing measures as instructed by their staff
- Please respect and follow the instructions outlined by our stores and centre security team
From Thursday 23 July, in-line with new mandates from the Victorian Government, you must wear a face covering at all times when visiting our Centre, unless:
- You are under 12;
- You have a medical condition that prohibits the wearing of a face covering;
- It’s not practical;
- For professional reasons.
To help keep our entire community safe, please be sure to bring an appropriate face covering with you the next time you visit. Anyone not wearing a face covering, without a valid reason, will be asked to leave the centre.
Following the Victorian Government’s announcement of Stage 4 Restrictions (commencing 11.59pm Wednesday 5 August), North Blackburn Shopping Centre will remain open to ensure we continue to service the essential needs of our local community.
Essential services at North Blackburn Shopping Centre that will remain open include; Woolworths, Bakers Delight, BWS, Expert Medical Care, healthSAVE Pharmacy, Australia Post, TG Quality Butchers, Hong Hot Bread, Ocean Eight, North Blackburn Dry Cleaners, Strachan Eyecare, Ben’s Repairs and Relax Dental & Facial Care.
There will be a police presence at the centre so please make sure you’re within a 5km radius of your home and only one person per household is visiting for essential goods and services as per the restrictions.
We continue to implement a number of preventative measures, which we have since the outbreak of COVID-19, including escalating the intensity and frequency of our cleaning procedures, providing instructional signage and encouraging all our visitors and staff to practice good hygiene with regular hand washing. Touchless hand sanitizer dispensers are available throughout the centre.
We are maintaining an ongoing dialogue with the local health authority as the situation evolves, while monitoring the latest official advice being provided.
Everyone’s ongoing support and understanding is very much appreciated as we work together to safely get through this challenging situation.
