Bayside has today announced international fashion brand, UNIQLO, will lead an exciting group of new and refreshed brands to open at the centre in the coming months as it continues a major refresh of its retail, dining and services precincts.

Expanding its footprint into Melbourne’s rapidly growing south-east, UNIQLO will take over the Level One space formerly occupied by Myer.

The introduction of these leading brands is a significant milestone for retail and dining at Bayside.

The ground floor, also under redevelopment, is set to welcome new look stores later in the year with footwear giant, Foot Locker and Australia’s most popular destination for sporting goods, Rebel Sports sitting either side of a brand-new, larger TK Maxx, promising big brands at small prices.

Popular burger, shakes, fries, and fro-yo restaurant, Yo My Goodness (YOMG), and Spanish-inspired chocolateria, San Churro, are also expected to open in the centre’s entertainment precinct and follow recent openings including Ghanda, TGI Fridays, Mad Mex, Pokero Sushi & Bowl, Essential Beauty, Strand, and Sheike.

The significant retail refresh follows the recent delivery of a new and contemporary workspace precinct that introduced modern office suites on level two of the retail centre.

With views of the bay, the modern office suites offer a superior office and retail experience and represents another proof point in Vicinity's mixed-use redevelopment strategy, bringing CBD-quality workspaces to Frankston with the convenience that comes with Bayside’s amenities at its doorstep.

Bayside Centre Manager, Emily Curcio said, “The introduction of these leading brands is a significant milestone for retail and dining at Bayside and represents the strength of our local customer and their desire for a curated new mix of retail and dining options to meet their growing needs.

“UNIQLO is a brand that’s popular amongst our community and, complemented by the refreshed and relocated TK Maxx, Rebel Sports and Foot Locker, will cement Bayside’s position as the Mornington Peninsula’s go-to retail destination in Melbourne’s south-east, offering locals unparalleled choice and convenience.”

A UNIQLO spokesperson said, “We are pleased that UNIQLO will open in Bayside Centre this Spring, and we are really looking forward to being part of the Peninsula’s lifestyle destination at such a beautiful time of the year.

We know that this particular location of Bayside Shopping Centre means a lot to local shoppers, and we hope that we can form a positive connection with the local community through our great service and our LifeWear range - - simple, affordable, high-quality clothing that’s made for the whole family.

"In the meantime, we have commenced recruitment for our Bayside store team, and we are welcoming people who are passionate about providing great customer service, connecting with the local community and helping locals experience our globally loved LifeWear range.  Some of the roles that we are recruiting for include Sales Associates, Store Administrators and Alteration Specialists.

"We look forward to providing the community with a further update once we know more, and we encourage all interested applicants to visit our website for more information."
