Changes coming to Ballina Fair

BALLINA Fair's new owners are looking to increase the number of shops, boost marketing and make the shopping centre more environmentally friendly after purchasing the commercial centre mid-year.

Raptis Investment bought the centre from Colonial First State Property for upwards of $60million, according to Fairfax Media.

The sale went through on July 1.

Centre manager David Griffiths said they were looking at ways to improve the centre to better serve the community.

"We've had a look at the centre and how we can make improvements and look at being a little bit more environmentally conscious," he said.

"It's all new LED lighting, that's one of the initiatives."

Mr Griffiths said several leasing additions were also being considered.

"From a marketing perspective, we're working on a new web page and TV advertising," he said.

"We really want to look at raising the profile in a positive way."
