On Sunday 6 December 2020, a small number of ceiling tiles inside the Woolworths store at Ballina Fair were dislodged, falling to the floor.

Subsequent engineering inspections revealed that an internal beam had moved, causing the ceiling tiles to dislodge.

Centre Management and Woolworths decided to temporarily close the Ballina Fair store pending further inspection, maintenance, and engineering certification.

A spokesperson for Ballina Fair told Echonetdaily yesterday, ‘We have located the internal beam and repaired the beam connection. As an added precaution, our structural engineers are in the process of inspecting all other beam connections to ensure their integrity.

‘We apologise for the inconvenience to customers and are working with Woolworths to plan their re-opening as soon as possible.’

After some sensationalist reporting in other outlets about the situation with the ceiling at Ballina Fair Woolworths this week, management of Ballina Fair Shopping Centre are hoping this statement sets the record straight.

They said Woolworths will advise their re-opening date via their website as soon as possible.
