Are food retailers still trading?
  • Selected food court retailers, cafes and restaurants within the centre continue to trade offering takeaway and home delivery only.
  • We have removed all tables and chairs from our food courts to facilitate take-away only and to ensure that social distancing practices are adhered to.
  • We continue to take extra precautions to ensure our food courts are clean and hygienic. This includes more frequent cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces.
How do we know what retailers are closing soon?
  • As the circumstances for each retailer continues to change, we will have a comprehensive listing on the Melbourne Central Website outlining any temporary store closures as well changes to trading hours.
  • If you are keen to visit specific stores, we recommend that you call the store before coming in to clarify their opening hours.
What are you doing to keep Melbourne Central clean?
  • It goes without saying that we remain absolutely committed to doing everything we can to put the health and safety of our MC community first.
  • We’ve installed free hand sanitiser stations throughout the centre including near our main entrances and exits, near food and dining precincts, and close to bathrooms.
  • We’ve also increased cleaning across the entire centre with particular focus on high foot traffic areas, and established dedicated additional cleaning services to make sure MC remains a place where you can feel safe.
