What a buzz as Minto Mall re-launched this morning after a $10 million make over which Campbelltown’s Mayor George Greiss described as “second to none, with a magnificent location, significant parking and excellent shops.”

Three days filled with exciting celebrations kicked off with Uncle Ivan’s smoking ceremony, lively performances from local schools like Sarah Redfern and Al-Faisal, visits by Paw Patrol and a Minion, a centre-wide sale and an ‘On-Site Outside’ Broadcast by C91.3FM until 8pm this evening, with “hundreds of dollars” worth of prizes to be given away.

While Minto locals, councillors Darcy Lound and Masood Chowdhury, marvelled at the Mall’s chequered journey from a less-than-humble outfit to the splendid enterprise it has now become, State Member for Macquarie Fields Anoulack Chanthivong acknowledged that this was a real credit to Tony Murdocca, his family and his team for the huge investment they have made into the well-being of our local community.

“It is their confidence and their commitment to our community that is reflected in this great change that we have today. I’m so proud to be the local member and to know that the future of our local community is so much better with the upgrade of Minto Mall,” Mr Chanthivong said.

The locals came out in force to cheer the Mayor, Mr Chanthivong and the Murdoccas as they cut the bright green ribbon, signalling what centre manager Michael Prestia described as “a new life and a new beginning.”

“As far as the future is concerned, you are in good stead. The center is in good stead. The owners know what they’re doing and they have that vision to continue on and just grow, grow, grow, with the rest of the community,” Mr Prestia said.

New eateries and enterprises opening at the Mall include AtMex, Bunz Out, My Italian, Yummy Sate, Lebnoosh, Southwest Radiology, Children’s Choice @ Minto, Fare Fashion Boutique and HD Dollar.
