Party Time at The Block Shop!

Time to party!

The Block Shop Melbourne opened its doors earlier this year on February 15, and celebrated with a party, attended by a host of ex-contestants, including Elyse (last year’s winner), Julia and Sasha (The Block 2016), Deanne Jolly (The Block Glasshouse) and Dani Wales (All Stars, Dorcas Street). Joining them were Scotty, Shelley and this year’s crop of Blockheads - which we can now reveal to you!

The Block Shop owners, Sarah Armstrong and Emma Garland and the team had reason to celebrate - it had been a mammoth undertaking to open the doors in time for our launch, which was filmed as part of this year’s show.

“It was such a race to get it all done,” says the shop’s manager Harrie. “I came onboard in January, and at that point the space was still a restaurant - and there was even a disco ball hanging from the ceiling! We had just a few weeks to rip everything out, paint it, and install all the products. In the end it was like we were doing our very own Block! We were literally putting the final touches to everything as the doors were opening for guests to arrive."
