Twenty years ago, on October 29, 1997, Rockdale Plaza opened its doors for the first time to eager South Sydney residents all vying for a chance to shop at the modern new centre.
Having once been a simple bowling alley and trash n’ treasure weekend markets on what is now known as Rockdale Plaza Drive, Rockdale Plaza has today cemented itself in the area as your go to shopping precinct for all your everyday needs.
The centre is anchored by big names Woolworths and Big W who have been with the centre since it opened.
Amongst the shopping, the centre today offers customers all their service needs.
The latest and newest edition to the centre being Myhealth Medical Centre.
It is also home to Services NSW, making the centre your one stop health destination.
Also celebrating 20 years is a collection of retailers who today stand with the centre by servicing the residents of Rockdale over the years.
These include Lowes, McDonalds, Rockdale Plaza Newsagency, Divani, Donut King, Excel Jewellers, Jeanswest, Michel’s Patisserie, Millers & Crossroad (Specialty Fashion Group), Priceline, RTA (now Service NSW) and Rebel.
The longevity of the tenancies is testament to a precinct that is well patronised by loyal customers, and has become a community hub loved by residents and retailers alike.
Rockdale Plaza is the place to meet up with friends, enjoy a relaxing coffee and shop for all your needs.
To celebrate this amazing milestone Rockdale Plaza has four action packed days filled with amazing activities and celebrations organised.
The centre is hoping the community will come on down and support the shopping centre and enjoy the celebrations.
From Thursday 26th to Sunday 29th October the centre is planning four amazing days of fun, fashion and flavours between 11.00am – 3.00pm daily.
