Rankings put plaza up with the best
IN a major boost to the retail industry on the Coffs Coast, Park Beach Plaza has ranked among the top shopping centres in Australia in a number of categories for the second consecutive year.
With over $256 million in sales last year, the Plaza is ranked number two in NSW and number seven in Australia for total sales including GST and is only marginally behind the number one position in many sales categories for shopping centres across the country.
Park Beach Plaza has also ranked number four in Australia for GLA (gross lettable area) sales which includes trading from all tenants located at the Shopping Centre as reported in the Shopping Centre industry benchmark magazine SCN (Shopping Centre News) for shopping centres that trade from up to 45,000 square metres of retail space.
Park Beach Plaza specialty stores were also ranked highly for the second consecutive year, ranked number four in NSW in sales per square metre.
According to Park Beach Plaza marketing manager Darren Leaney, these types of results indicate a quality mix of local and national retailers offering the very best in customer service.
"We consistently offer our customers what I believe is amongst the best possible service and shopping experience in Australia," he said.
"Park Beach Plaza is part of the most dynamic category in the shopping centre industry, so we are particularly proud of our achievements as it proves once again that if you want to succeed, the Coffs Coast is a great place to do business.
"Park Beach Plaza contributes approximately 30 per cent of the retail turnover in Coffs Harbour."
