Westfield Warringah Mall (previously known as Warringah Mall) is a large indoor/outdoor shopping centre on Sydney's Northern Beaches in the suburb of Brookvale, approximately 15 km from the CBD. Its main tenants include David Jones, Myer, Target, Big W, Woolworths, Coles, Rebel Sport, JB HiFi, Dick Smith Powerhouse and Hoyts Cinema in addition to over 300 specialty stores.

History[edit]

Warringah Mall first opened in 1963 and included 53 stores. Ten years later, the centre saw the opening of the Myer store, then known as Grace Brothers, along with 50 more speciality stores, followed by the opening of the Hoyts Twin Cinema Complex in the early 1980s. In the mid-1980s, a Target store was opened along with 20 speciality stores. Another expansion to the centre underwent construction in the late 1990s and was officially opened in December 1999, with approximately 90 stores, making this the largest expansion ever to open in Warringah Mall. This development included an additional food court, extra cinemas, another 60 speciality stores, followed by the opening of Dick Smith Electronics Powerhouse in 2000. Warringah Mall is now the third largest shopping centre by floorspace in New South Wales behind Westfield Parramatta and Westfield Bondi Junction.[1]

In October 2012, AMP Capital and the Westfield Group swapped interests in a total of seven centres, including Warringah Mall which remains a joint venture between the two companies, but with altered ownership levels and name branding.[2] In July 2014, the Westfield Group became two companies Scentre Group and Westfield Corporation. This shopping centre is now managed by Scentre Group. [3] It hosts the annual Northern Beaches stumping contest held each July which raises funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
