The Christmas party season often means a packed social calendar, and with this comes pressure…
Non-essential shopping is now allowed. But for immunocompromised Canberrans, visiting a mall might still be a bridge too far.
To keep shopping accessible to all Canberrans, Canberra Centre has launched a new free service—Order and Collect.
The concept is simple—order direct from one of the participating stores, then collect your goods in a contactless manner from the Level 1 Aldi Car Park off Petrie Street, with collection available from 10 am-4 pm, Monday to Sunday.
General Manager of Canberra Centre, Gary Stewart, says it’s a simple way to keep the Centre connected to all Canberrans, no matter their circumstances.
“Introducing this extra service will allow our customers to continue to place orders with their favourite stores and collect them the same day without needing to leave their car,” he explains.
“With many retailers open again, it provides an additional way for stores to still connect with those customers who might not be able to access the centre throughout this difficult time.”
Recognising that online shopping may also be a challenge for some elderly Canberrans, the service also includes the ability to over via phone or email, as well as online.
This is also helpful for retailers who might not have their own online shopping platform.
Already, more than 20 retailers have signed up to take part, including Dymocks, L’Occitane, Skechers, Price Attack, M.J Bale and Nosh. For a full list of retailers taking part and for more information, see www.canberracentre.com.au.
