Help Us Find Our Customer Service Stars

13th August 2023

Here at the Golden Centre, we pride ourselves on being the 'heart of Dunedin's shopping area' and there is no question that it is our retailers that keep our shopping centre’s heart pumping. 

To celebrate the experience, knowledge and plain and simple good old-fashioned service displayed by our retailers, we would like to recognise and reward a special staff member each month for going the extra mile.

To do this, we need YOUR help. If you have experienced great customer service in the Golden Centre, please tell us where it occurred, when and who made your day? 

Not only will we consider every entry we receive, but we will also award both the winning retail staff member and the person nominating them with a $50 voucher each to spend in the Golden Centre store of their choice!*
