Another mall will be added to Melbourne’s retail offering this December when the revamped Spencer Outlet Centre is opened.

The centre will offer discount shopping in a new mini major retail concept, which will also include several exclusive big brands such as Cotton On mega store, Trade Secret and Harris Scarfe – the first and only store in the CBD. The centre is aimed to cater to the needs of local CBD workers and Docklands residence.

The opening follows the appointment Retpro Group as managers of the Centre in November 2012.

Retpro Group managing director Graham Terry said he understands the importance of bringing convenience and savings to the CBD workers and residents.

“Spencer Outlet Centre’s reinvigorated offering is a direct response to Melbourne’s CBD and Docklands growth,” he said.

“Local workers and residents will be provided with an enriched shopping experience that provides not only breadth but also worthwhile savings.”

At the time of launch Spencer Outlet Centre will hold a gross leasable area (GLA) of approximately 27,000 square metres, with over 100 stores trading.
