Parkmore Shopping Centre is a regional shopping centre located in the outer south-eastern suburb of Keysborough in the city of Melbourne, Australia. The centre services the suburbs of the City of Greater Dandenong[3] such as Keysborough, Noble Park, Springvale as well as other local suburbs. There are 128 stores at Parkmore along with 2,600 car parking spaces, 130 of which are located undercover.[2]

History[edit]

Opening on 27 November 1973, the centre held extravagant opening celebrations, including Santa Claus arriving in the world's largest hot air balloon of the time, as well as a performance by John Farnham.[4] Originally containing 59 stores within a 3 wing Y shaped building, including a Coles New World and 1200 car park spaces, the centre has had numerous redevelopments over the years, involving the reconfiguration of malls, the addition of Big W and Kmart stores, as well as more carparking and a new front facade. The most recent development occurred in 2007, which involved extending the Safeway and built a new entrance allowing access to the food court.[citation needed]

Anchors[edit]

The centre is surrounded on all sides except the east side by ground level uncovered parking. Rooftop parking is provided with two separate carparks on top of Coles and Kmart. Limited undercover parking is available near Coles.
