Five Mile Centre has established itself as a popular destination in its third year of operation continuing to attract increasing numbers of people from Queenstown and the surrounding districts to its large commercial shopping precinct.
Located at Queenstown’s gateway, the centre is a one-stop hub for shopping, groceries, household services and supplies, reinforced by an emerging café and restaurant scene.
“The retail mix is friendly and inviting,” says Five Mile retail manager Regan Allington. “There are a wide range of businesses now operating here which all add to its ambience and vibrancy.”
With larger ‘big box’ retailers operating alongside smaller boutique stores and interactive hospitality outlets, Five Mile’s appeal is substantial.
“Five Mile’s central location and easy parking is a considerable boost for those shopping and recreating. With over 1000 car parks around the centre it is an attractive and easy solution for a growing community,” says Regan.
Five Mile continues to grow with new premises such as a hotel, locals’ pub and more office and business space planned alongside innovative products and services.
“The future is very bright for Five Mile and a robust and well-run public transport system is in place adding to the overall attraction of the precinct.”
