THE redeveloped Wanneroo Central will officially open this Friday.

Charter Hall has finished a $20 million redevelopment of the shopping centre, adding a dining precinct and town square.

The official launch on September 7 will celebrate the opening of brands such as Hog’s Breath Cafe, Funky Mexican Cantina, Flame 400 Burger Cafe, Pizza Express, Headquarters HQ, and Priceline, in addition to the opening of Aldi in June.

Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton, City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts, representatives from Charter Hall and community members are expected to attend the opening event from 1pm.

Youth Futures, Wanneroo Central’s charity partner, will also be there to accept a $35,310 donation from Charter Hall to mark the centre’s opening.

Charter Hall’s head of retail development and asset management Yvette Keatings said enthusiasm for the project from the community and tenants has been encouraging.

“We have listened and responded with an exciting new retail precinct that will be a truly important part of the community for years to come,” she said.

“The new centre offers the community more choice in casual dining, takeaway food, services and shopping.”

Friday’s celebrations will include an appearance by Fireman Sam, as well as family entertainment and free merry-go-round rides until 8pm, with more celebrations planned over the weekend.
