The new shopping mall in Silverdale is nearing completion. Recently Farmers advertised jobs within the complex, saying it expects to open in March.
The new complex, on the corner of Millwater Parkway and Silverdale Street, is owned by the James Pascoe Group and includes, a 5490sqm Farmers store over two levels and up to 30 retail stores (including Whitcoulls, Stevens and three cafés).
The possible impact on Coast Plaza could be substantial, but is yet to be determined. Farmers, Whitcoulls and Stevens all have stores in Coast Plaza but at this stage it is unknown whether any, or all, of those stores will continue trading in Whangaparaoa, as well as opening in Silverdale.
