Centrepoint Shopping Mall, Leeton

Centrepoint, Leeton

The Centrepoint Shopping Mall in Leeton in rural New South Wales has an interesting history. It has only been a shopping arcade from the 1970s. Prior to that it was a the premises of S Richards & Co and goes back to before the Art Deco period. In 1936, local architect G W A Welch designed a new building to be built over the existing building without requiring the business to close. T J Ashton, a local builder, was charged with completing the works.
