Alterations to 2020 Chaddy pre-Christmas shopping

Thu, 15 Oct 2020 12:00 am By Admin

Due to the pandemic, Chadstone Shopping Centre will operate to an altered setting for its Christmas shopping season.

Strict limits on customer numbers will be enforced. Some shops will be required to use virtual queueing (via a smartphone app) to prevent overcrowding, especially in high traffic areas.

Other measures may include scrapping the 34-hour continuous trade period immediately before Christmas day.

COVID outbreak at Chadstone, drive-through test clinic to be setup Thu, 01 Oct 2020 12:00 am By Admin

A COVID outbreak linked to the fresh food precinct has prompted a deep clean. The precinct has been deemed safe and has been re-opened for customers.

A pop-up drive through testing clinic will be re-established at the Shopping Centre to encourage more people to take a COVID test. This is in addition to the testing clinic already established at Golfers Drive near Holmesglen.

Chaddy to enforce face covering rules Thu, 23 Jul 2020 12:00 am By Admin

Chadstone Shopping Centre will actively enforce the new Victorian rules on wearing a face mask or covering, which came into effect at 11:59pm on Wednesday 22 July.

Centre security staff will be questioning any shopper without a face covering. Should the shopper have a legitimate reason for not wearing a face covering, they must be able to produce evidence (such as as medical certificate). Otherwise, shoppers will be directed to a store to purchase a face mask. Refusal to comply will lead to the customer being directed to leave.

Chadstone rolling out Frogparking parking management system Thu, 02 Jul 2020 12:00 am By Admin

Frogparking has been chosen by Chadstone to upgrade their existing parking management system.

Back in 2012, Chadstone installed a system called ParkAssist. However this system was only implemented in multi-level carparks. The ParkAssist system will be scrapped in favour of a new system supplied by FrogParking.

Earlier in the year, new parking sensors were installed in Uber and taxi ranks as a trial. Now, the system will be rolled out in full.

The new Frogparking system includes solar powered sensors for open ground parking. A smartphone app will also be made available to guide shoppers to the nearest vacant parking bay. Currently the ParkAssist system has been deactivated, with the old vacancy signs out of operation.

Previously, there was no technological way of guiding customers to free spaces or enforcing parking time limits in locations such as the outdoor 'QuickPark 90 minute' zones.
