Menai Marketplace celebrates 25th anniversary

On Friday, September 27, Menai Marketplace will be celebrating its 25th birthday.

The community is invited to join the party from 8.30am. There will be live music, face painting, cupcake decorating workshop, giveaways, competitions and special sale offers across the centre.

The shopping centre officially opened in 1994.

Menai Marketplace will recognise many of the original stores including Christiane's Hair Design, Rockmans, Williams, Bakers Delight and Michels Patisserie.

There will be a special mention to Pahk Fung from Bakers Delight, who has been in the centre since it opened.

Anchored by Woolworths and Big W, and with 55 specialty retailers, the centre employs about 250 people, and it partners with several community groups including 3Bridges, Share the Dignity, Nappy Collective and Salvation Army.
