Mill & Bakery at Central Pier
Open 7 Days a Week. Monday to Friday: 7:30am – 4:00pm Saturday: 8:00am – 3:00pm Sunday: 8:00am – 2:00pm
03.01.20 It is with a sense of disbelief that we confirm that the 8 businesses on Central Pier will remain shut following a decision from Development Victoria to permanently close the Pier.
The safety of the 1300 staff members and customers has always been our number one priority and it is clear now that tens of thousands of people have been put at serious risk over a long period of time due to Development Victoria and its failure to maintain Central Pier.
We are extremely disappointed with the timing of today’s rushed announcement given that Victoria is in a state of emergency and all attention is rightly and properly on the devastating bushfires across Victoria and NSW.
We asked that the announcement be held off until the fire threat subsides and to allow us time to inform our workers and clients, but Development Victoria refused. Despite this, we will not be holding any press conferences until after the fire threat has subsided.
Thank you to the tens of thousands of people from across Australia who have come forward and supported the businesses and workers on Central Pier.
Our thoughts remain with the firefighters, their families and everyone affected by the devastating fires across Victoria and NSW.
29.08.19 As you may be aware, on Wednesday 28 August, we were advised by Development Victoria that based on the advice of engineers Central Pier needed to be vacated immediately.
At this stage, it is unknown when Central Pier will be re-opened.
At Mill & Bakery, our number one priority is the safety of our customers, our clients and our staff.
We are also committed to providing the very best experience for our customers and are assisting with the relocation of all events currently booked at Central Pier in the coming weeks. Rest assured all impacted clients will be accommodated and every effort will be made to deliver an exceptional experience for you.
We will work with Development Victoria to understand exactly what has occurred and we will seek clarity on when we will be able to return to our venues on Central Pier.
We are in the process of contacting all of our impacted and valued customers. We encourage anyone who has any concerns or queries to email firstname.lastname@example.org
