Southern Telegraph - - Telegraph News - David Sal­vaire

New-look shop­ping cen­tre Se­cret Har­bour Square of­fi­cially opened its doors on Fri­day fol­low­ing a $63 mil­lion trans­for­ma­tion into what has been dubbed one of the south­ern sub­urbs’ most ex­cit­ing re­tail precincts.

A strong crowd was on hand for the cut­ting of the rib­bon, with City of Rock­ing­ham Mayor Barry Sam­mels declar­ing the cen­tre a “great as­set” for Se­cret Har­bour.

“We now have a district-level shop­ping cen­tre that will ser­vice this com­mu­nity that con­tin­ues to grow,” he said.

“This is a vi­brant and mod­ern neigh­bour­hood cen­tre and I’m con­fi­dent it will bring great em­ploy­ment and en­joy­ment to this area for years to come.”

Rick Lowe from the new Se­cret Har­bour Surf Life­sav­ing Club ac­cepted a $20,000 do­na­tion from Char­ter Hall, the cen­tre’s prop­erty man­ager, to mark the open­ing.

The Se­cret Har­bour Square brings with it the much-an­tic­i­pated open­ing of new ALDI and Coles su­per­mar­kets, as well as 30 spe­cialty stores.
