A MULTI-MILLION dollar makeover will give Miller Shopping Centre a new look, new reputation and even a new name.

The centre will now be known as Miller Central.

Private investors purchased the business last year and appointed international retail management experts Savils to manage it.

New retailers are opening their doors and better customer facilities are being provided in the newly renovated centre.

Discount retail giant Go-Lo is one of the new retailers moving into the centre, along with fresh food grocer Fruit Town.

The $8 million refurbishment will include new Italian terrazzo tile floors and LED lighting throughout as well as upgraded public toilets with a parent's room and a disabled toilet.

The exterior branding of the centre will also have a facelift with new tower signage and store signage.

Stuart Pham, who has been operating Cafe Miller in the centre for four years, said the improvements were amazing.

Mr Pham said people might not recognise the new centre because of how much it has changed.

"What we're seeing is tremendous change," Mr Pham said.

"People will say this is not Miller because it's not typical Miller, but this is the new face of Miller shopping centre."

Centre manager Wray Walker said there would be significant improvements to facilities and services to enhance customers' shopping experience.

"The face of the community is changing and Miller Central is changing along with it."
