One of Perth’s most enduring shopping centres has given tenants just a month’s notice to shut up shop.
Carillon City has given 28 days’ notice to evict any tenant that doesn’t face the Hay or Murray street malls.
It’s understood the arcade will remain as a thoroughfare.
The centre’s management, Dexus, has blamed “the current uncertainty around the economy, business and retail conditions, and the ongoing impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic” for the decision, suggesting that the site has potential as a “job-creating project” for perhaps a future anchor tenant.
The mall originally opened as the City Arcade in 1970, with the Carillon Arcade following in 1982. The two arcades later merged, forming Carillon City shopping centre.
The Carillon Arcade was home to Perth’s first food court, and the ‘Carillon Bells’, which are made up of 36 bells in a glass tower and can be heard at 12 noon and 5.30pm each day.
