Bendigo Marketplace is anchored by Woolworths and Big W and supported by over 95 specialty stores. The centre is located in the heart of Bendigo along Mitchell Street. The retail mix of the centre includes everyday fashion, lifestyle, services, home wares, general retail, fresh food and takeaway food, with a solid blend of national and local operators. The centre comprehensively services the everyday needs of the primary trade area of Bendigo, but also draws from a large secondary trade area that extends in a 80-100km radius beyond the centre. Bendigo Marketplace first opened it’s doors on the 31st of October 1995 and next year will be celebrating its 20th Birthday. When Bendigo Marketplace first opened it had two majors Big W and Woolworths and a handful of specialty stores. The centre underwent a major development in 2008/2009 which saw the centre double in size. This was an exciting time for Bendigo residents who for the first time were offered a complete retail mix locally consisting of Apparel, jewellery, footwear and a large food court with a number of local and national brands.
