Plans to re-open Westfield Bondi to the community

Westfield Bondi will be re-opened in phases from tomorrow in a respectful and considered approach that considers the broader needs of the community, customers and our business partners.

A Community Reflection Day will be held tomorrow Thursday 18 April at Westfield Bondi.
Retailers will not be trading on this day.

We invite members of the public to visit the centre in their own time between 11:00am and 5:00pm. Condolence books will be made available in an online format and hard copy.

The centre will be on ‘quiet time’ settings.

Mental health counsellors from our EAP Assure and Lifeline and other community partners will be available for people to speak with if they wish.

Customers will be offered black ribbon commemoration pins to wear as a symbol of solidarity with the victims and their families.

On Friday 19 April the centre will be re-opened for trade at the normal trading hours of 9:30am to 6:00pm.

The centre will remain on ‘quiet time’ settings.

We expect many of our business partners to open for trade and some will phase their opening over the coming week.

We expect Westfield Bondi will operate on ‘quiet time’ for a period of time to allow our customers, community and business partners to re-establish their connection to the centre.

Scentre Group CEO Elliott Rusanow said:

“Westfield Bondi is an important community hub and we share the devastation that is being experienced at the tragedy that occurred at our centre. We are focused on re-opening Westfield Bondi in a way that is respectful of the victims’ families and all those who are grieving and experiencing trauma at this difficult time.

“We would like to thank our business partners for working with us through this period to re-open and reconnect with their customers. Business partners may re-open at different stages; and we ask the community for understanding as they do.

“Our focus is on supporting our people, our business partners and the broader community who love Westfield Bondi.”

We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and communities of the lands on which our business operates.

We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to their Elders past and present.

We recognise the unique role of Māori as Tangata Whenua of Aotearoa/New Zealand.
