Food Court proves great success


Nine months after its opening, Belmont Forum’s new food fresh food precinct is proving a great success for traders and shopping centre customers alike.

The $65 million redevelopment opened in August last year with visitors offered a whole new fresh food experience with food specialist stores nestled between major retailers including a Coles, plus Woolworths and Aldi.

The Shopping Centre recently staged the “Meet Your Local Foodies” campaign designed to create a connection between the local community and fresh-food retailers.

The promotion was designed to create a more personal connection between shoppers and the people who produce the food and offer great service every day of the week.

Since the launch of Fresh, Belmont Forum, which is wholly owned by the Perron Group, has welcomed other speciality stores including Sportsgirl, Suzanne Grae and the Piccaso Art & Craft Centre with more tenants set to come.

Adding to the Centre’s appeal. McDonalds has begun site works for the construction of a new restaurant, which is scheduled to be completed prior to Christmas.

Graeme Glass, Senior Asset Manager at Perron Group said the focus on fresh food was industry-leading and designed to make Belmont Forum more than just a place for people to shop but a destination in itself.
