Westfield StrathpineEdit profile
Westfield Strathpine is a regional shopping centre located in Strathpine, a suburb in Moreton Bay, north of Brisbane. The centre was built and opened in 1983 by The Westfield Group. It is anchored by Big W and Target discount department stores, Woolworths supermarket, Coles supermarket and ALDI Food Store. The centre has a food court anchored by fast food chains such as McDonalds, KFC and Subway (restaurant) . There is also an 8 screen Birch, Carroll and Coyle multiplex cinema, a Bowling Alley, Planet Gaming Arcade and a Snap Fitness gym on an upper mezzanine level. Most of the centre is single level with a rooftop carpark. It has a bus station with services to Brisbane, Redcliffe and Pine Rivers areas. Westfield Strathpine is about a 10 minute walk to QR Citytrain's Strathpine railway station, with frequent services to Caboolture and to Ipswich via Brisbane. Westfield Strathpine has approximately 160 specialty stores mostly within the categories of clothing, general merchandise, homewares and cosmetics. With Brisbane's two popular centres Indooroopilly and Toombul no longer managed by Westfield since 2000 and 2003, respectively, Westfield Strathpine remains Queensland's longest incumbent management by Westfield since its opening in 1983. Myer Closure and Centre Modification After the closure of the Myer Department Store at Strathpine on Saturday March 3, 2007, the section of centre where Myer was located was closed off to allow for a redesign. The new "mall" of Westfield Strathpine features a Target variety store, JB Hi-Fi and many other retail stores. A new 2 level Myer store opened in 2008 at Westfield North Lakes, ensuring that Myer still has a department store in the fast growing Moreton Bay region (which comprises the former Pine Rivers and Redcliffe shires).
