Creating spaces to engage the community

The Community Corner at Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre.

Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre is creating spaces where people want to be.

Recently, the shopping centre launched the Endeavour Kids Corner and relaunched their Community Corner, two spaces designed specifically for the community.

Retail has been heavily affected by Covid-19, and has experienced many challenges in recent times.

Shopping centres are having to think outside of the box and become more than just a place to shop. They need to be a community hub where the public can come together to socialise, network, shop, dine and work.

Endeavour Hills Shopping Centre has done just that by creating engaging environments within the malls that appeal and welcome the local community.

The Endeavour Kids Corner is for the children, parents and carers in the community to use and enjoy.  The space includes a playground, giant chalkboard and parents’ retreat. It also boasts a Kids Book Swap, where families can borrow, donate or simply sit and read a book.

Marketing Manager Lauren Pascale said the objective was to create a sense of community.

“The space has received great feedback,” she said.

“We hope our customers continue to get as much enjoyment out of it, as we have in bringing this space to life.”

After having closed the Community Corner during most of 2020 due to Covid-19, an all-new Community Corner has been relaunched and relocated.

At the Community Corner, you will find out information on events and services from local sports clubs and local organisations. It also features a book exchange, community noticeboard, and relaxing seating areas.

New to the Community Corner is co-working spaces available to shoppers who work from home but need extra space. The dedicated co-working spaces have access to power for laptops, and to the shopping centre’s free Wi-Fi.
