Ellenbrook Central in Perth’s north-east will undergo an 11,000 square metre expansion, taking the centre to more than 120 retailers and brands.
Aldi, Best & Less, Big W, Coles, Woolworths are already at the centre which caters to one of Perth’s fastest growing areas.
Centre manager Mike Barrington said: “This expansion is an exciting new chapter for Ellenbrook Central as we’re growing together with our local community.
