The Masters signs will soon be coming down and a range of new shops are expected to be opened by April.

More than 100 jobs are expected to be created with the transformation of the former Masters store in South Lismore.

The site has been purchased by Home Consortium, a joint venture of the Sydney-based Aurrum Group, Spotlight and Chemist Warehouse.

Stores which have been revealed as expected tenants include JB Hi-Fi, Forty Winks, Spotlight, National Tiles, Repco, Pet Stock, a cafe and BCF, which specialises in boating, camping and fishing.

A development application was lodged with the Lismore City Council just prior to Christmas and is now on display.

As part of the development, the single-tenant store will be converted into a multi-tenancy centre, incorporating eight distinct stores and the cafe.

The open-air garden centre at the north end of the existing building will be enclosed and all signage updated.

Submissions to the council regarding the development application close on February 1.

The $2.5 million building is expected to open in April, providing 100 jobs across the complex.

  1. Boring shops, another Mall with same old same old shops (corporations) and yet another coffee shop!
    Wake up Australians, we are allowing them to turn us into generic morons

  2. You can find those stores everywhere! What we need is a half decent nursery. One with a large selection, beautifully set up displays, and even perhaps a relaxing spot to sit and enjoy a cuppa, amidst aviaries and water features. Whenever we visited nurseries such as this, we invariably spent a few hours there and always spent way more than we had initially intended.
