Wi-Fi part of DFO surge
December 7, 2016
Free Wi-Fi is now available to all shoppers at DFO Cairns ahead of what is expected to be a busy Christmas period.
It comes after Brisbane-based Sentinel Property Group bought the shopping centre for about $40 million in April. “We are committed to staying at the forefront of the latest international retail trends for the benefit of our shoppers,” Sentinel managing director Warren Ebert said. “In America, shopping centres right throughout the county provide free Wi-Fi, but in Australia it is currently only offered in the big cities. Why should shoppers in regional locations be treated any differently from those in big cities? We believe the same technologies should be available to all shoppers, no matter where they are located and are proud to now provide free Wi-Fi to all shoppers at DFO Cairns.”
DFO Cairns also recently welcomed footwear and clothing company PUMA as its newest “showcase retailer”. With Far North tourism surging, Mr Ebert said Sentinel had confidence in the centre’s future growth prospects. Work is expected to begin on a new outdoor food and entertainment area at DFO Cairns in the first quarter of next year.Download the Article
