David Jones has announced key changes to its Food offering to create a future-fit store portfolio and enhanced online business. David Jones Food Halls at Elizabeth Street (NSW) and Bondi Junction (NSW) will be elevated and provide a bespoke selection of concession partners and experiential elements. Premium Pantry and Gifting offerings will be further enhanced and extended across stores and online. Following the significant impact on CBD footfall throughout the pandemic, the David Jones Food Hall in Melbourne’s Bourke Street Mall will close next month ahead of the brand’s surrender of the current Menswear building in August 2022. A new Food offering will be introduced next year as part of the refurbishment of the Bourke Street Womenswear store, including Premium Pantry, Gifting and instore food service options. Food Stores at Capitol Grand (VIC) and Malvern Central (VIC) will also close in April and May 2021, respectively. This simplified Food offering would set up the Food business for a sustainable and successful future.
