Melbourne’s largest shopping destination west of the CBD, Highpoint will welcome IKEA Australia’s brand-new format, IKEA Plan and Order Point, and one of Toymate’s largest one-stop toy shops in Victoria, to the centre in late 2022.

The never-before-seen IKEA Australia format will offer one-to-one advice on home and living solutions, navigating more complex furnishing products and services IKEA offers. Unique to Highpoint, IKEA Plan and Order Point will provide inspiration and solutions for customers wanting to create their dream kitchen or wardrobe.

Shoppers will be able to order what they need at the Plan and Order Point location and then choose home delivery or pick up their items at a collection point close by.

The GPT Group head of retail and mixed-use, Chris Barnett said, “We’re delighted to be welcoming this exciting new IKEA format to Highpoint. At GPT we’re always looking to attract new and unique retail offerings that draw customers to our shopping centres.

“IKEA will join the many in-demand retailers choosing Highpoint, reflecting the presence Highpoint has as Melbourne’s largest shopping centre in Melbourne’s west. We look forward to the opening of IKEA Plan and Order Point very soon.”

Highpoint centre manager, Cristina Persico added, “IKEA Plan and Order Point will elevate the overall experience for Highpoint shoppers, providing them with premium advice in-centre to create one-of-kind lifestyle spaces at home.”

Joining IKEA at Highpoint will be toy superstore, Toymate, which has become the fastest growing toy retailer in the country with over 10,000 products on offer from brands including LEGO, Barbie, Pokémon, Hot Wheels, Marvel, Paw Patrol, Vtech and more.

Toymate’s Highpoint Superstore will be the first in Victoria to offer a full toy, outdoor and baby range through baby brand, Babymate, offering expecting and new parents a range of baby brands including Stokke, Baby Zen, Maxi-Cosi and more.
