Chadstone – The Fashion Capital puts the magic into Christmas shopping

Shopping gets an extra bit of sparkle at Chadstone with premium services, extended hours and every store you could need under one roof

By Time Out in association with Chadstone – The Fashion Capital

With more than 500 stores, Chadstone is the place to go to solve all your gifting conundrums in one hit. 

You can find something for every member of the family – and even for that work colleague you’ve never met whom you somehow landed in kris kringle. There are stores for fashionistas (Kenzo, Bec & Bridge, Nudie Jeans, Country Road), shoe addicts (Golden Goose, Secret Sneaker Store), beauty mavens (Aesop, Morphe), technology hounds (Bang and Olufson, Leica, Tesla), homemakers (Georg Jensen, Marimekko) and much more. You’ll also find everything you need for table settings, decorations and fresh food. 

For the best experience, try to plan your arrival for before 11am and if possible, shop on a weekday. Chadstone has free car parking across six multi-level carparks all with family-friendly special needs spaces as well as lifts. There is also select pram parking and 90 minutes parking zones for the speedy shopper.

To help you breeze through Christmas, Chadstone is offering a number of premium guest services for customers who enjoy an ultra-convenient experience from start to finish, or who simply would like it to be contactless. Check them out.

Be completely extra with Butler Service

New to Chadstone is the Butler Service – a one-on-one personal assistant to find stores, carry your shopping, organise appointments and attend to all your errands. On arrival your very own Jeeves will serve light refreshments at the Luxury Lounge and cloak your items. Then when you’re ready, the shopping begins. Your butler will make sure that as you purchase your parcels will be collected and minded by the Chadstone Premium Guest Services team.

Lessen the stress with Valet Parking

Hate parking? We hear you. Chadstone’s Valet Parking allows you to drive up and hand over your keys – no booking required. Then when you’re ready to go you can request your vehicle to be ready for departure in advance. They'll even load your car up for you! This is a Covid-safe service: disposable gloves changed after every vehicle are used, and touchpoints including steering wheel, gear lever, door handles and keys are always sanitised. For an extra fee you can get them to wash the entire car for you too so it’s sparkling clean for your return drive.

Never lift a finger with Hands Free Shopping

You don't have to carry your purchases around with you all day – try Hands Free Shopping. It’s designed to be completely seamless – all you have to do is show the store staff your SMS which has a unique tag ID, then click on the link provided to let the Concierge team know how many bags you want collected. They will then be waiting for you at your selected centre collection location – easy. Psst: Valet Parking customers can enjoy Hands Free Shopping as a complimentary service.
