There's a fresh, new look to a major regional shopping centre on the corner of Beach and Erindale Roads in Warwick.

The Warwick Grove Shopping Centre opened its doors almost 30 years ago and was recently bought by the Centro Group, Australia's largest manager of shopping centres in Australia. The name has changed to Centro Warwick to bring it into line with 110 shopping centres elsewhere in Australia and there's now an extra 1500 square metres of retail shopping area.

The centre comprises Coles and Woolworths supermarkets, Kmart, Harvey Norman and 95 other specialty retailers including the recent introduction of Best & Less as a mini major.

A new mall has been created, linking the main building to what was Warwick Centre, bring Harvey Norman and Australia Post under the main roof. The mall has new terrazzo floors, modified ceiling features, new light-fittings and upgraded services

The old ramp from the basement carpark has been replaced with a travelator, a real convenience for the centres many loyal customers, who have patiently but enthusiastically continued their patronage as the building works have taken place.

One major change at the new Centro Warwick, is the development of a fresh food precinct which has been branded "Fresh Life", a concept already being used by other Centro centres in Victoria and Queensland and the first of its kind in WA. Fresh Life has distinctive, crisp black and white flooring and individual ceiling and lighting design. The precinct is located just outside the Woolworths supermarket and sees the addition of Lenards Poultry and Bakers Delight joining Butcher Tom, Good Life Health Food and Krusty Kob Patisserie.

Ideally located at the gateway to Perth's northern and beachside suburbs, Centro Warwick has generous parking for 2,200 cars, either rooftop, basement or via entrances off Beach or Erindale Roads.

Centro Warwick is open tomorrow for Christmas shopping from 10am until 5pm; there's late night shopping on Monday and Tuesday and until 5.30 on Christmas Eve.
