Myer Chadstone

Victoria's first regional shopping centre opened in the Melbourne suburb of Chadstone in October 1960, with 7500 prospective shoppers attending in person and many more watching on television. Kenneth and Baillieu Myer spent £6 million constructing Chadstone Shopping Centre, which they saw as an extension of their Myer Emporium in Bourke Street. The ambitious project was developed on a 30-acre site in Melbourne's south-eastern suburbs, and at the time it was the biggest single retail merchandising development in Australia.
