These are difficult times for our community and our priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, retailers, team members and the broader community.

Following advice from the Victorian Government and the return to stage three restrictions, Altona Gate remains open for our local community to shop for essential and necessary products and services they need.

With stage three restrictions the following stores and services will temporarily close from 11.59pm 8 July for six weeks:

  • Gyms
  • Beauty therapy, day spas, massage, nail bars, laser clinics, tanning and waxing salons

 

Our cafes, food court and dining operators can again remain open with take-away and delivery services available. Unaffected stores and services remain open for your convenience, with physical distancing in place.

We continue to have stringent health and safety measures in place including increased sanitisation and cleaning of high touch areas and heat-mapping to help our team identify any busy zones in our centre.  We will continue to monitor and follow advice from the government to ensure we remain a safe place to visit.

You can find updates via our website www.altonagate.com.au or please check with individual stores as opening hours may vary.

Stay safe and we will get through this together.
