Turvey Tops shopping precinct is hot on its toes as established businesses look to expand and vacant shopfronts attract interest.
Offering a mix of stationary, takeout options, a cafe and grocery store, it has remained a bustling area for convenience and service for residents in the vicinity.
Commercial real estate agent Craig Tait, from Raine and Horne, said a couple of vacant shopfronts do not represent the centre's success.
"St Vinnies has moved and we've got a brand new tenancy which will be Snack Shack and we're looking for a good operator to sell sandwiches, pies and quick takeaway foods and it will be a fully renovated tenancy," Mr Tait said.
"The owners are in the process of redeveloping and moving a few shops including a new shop for a laundromat, which is in the final process of being fitted out for equipment.
"The Indian Rasoi restaurant is expanding into more space and will take up a little area where the old laundromat used to be."
Mr Tait said since Turvey Thai's departure there has already been some interest to establish another Asian cuisine, which shows a positive outlook for community business.
"With new tenancies and new development going on, it's going to create some foot traffic and to prepare for the future," he said.
"The centre is definitely not struggling, Dom's Pizza is looking to expand their kitchen and oven because in the bit over 12 months they've been there, they're struggling to keep up with the demand."
Turvey Tops Newsagency owner David Ritter said this will be positive for not just his store, but others too.
"More and improved shops within the precinct can only lift all businesses," he said.
"I've been here for five years and there's been a few vacant shops here for a long time, but I'd say that's probably more to do with unrealistic rentals from the landlords than business in Turvey Park as we've proven.
"We've grown the business substantially since we took over the business and it's all about offering customer service, presentation and taking the opportunities to expand when they've come up."
The Daily Advertiser contacted the shopping precinct owner Stuart Webster for comment, but was unavailable to comment.
Turvey Park resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said he regularly visits the precinct and there are some that are performing well.
"I think there's only one or two shops that are vacant, but the pizza joint and cafe seem pretty busy," he said.
"I probably visit the centre two to three times a week mainly for convenience at FoodWorks and also for takeaway, at the Indian restaurant and pizza place."
