Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Another one on Gawler Place bites the dust!
After 88 years of trading (in total), Frank McCabe Jewelers will be shutting up shop at the end of March.
It has been trading on the same spot for about more than 30 years I'd say.

The former Propaganda Bar is reopening as the (unimaginatively named) Gatsby Lounge, or so says their aggressive social media marketing.

By the way, the space next door (where Cotton On was) is still disused for the foreseeable future.

The meals are reasonably priced, this will be a good place to go before heading home on the train.
Or when you get off the train to have lunch or dinner.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Wendy's Supa Sundaes in the Myer Centre Food Court isn't there anymore. And since it's next door to the former lolly shop/salad bar, I assume they're going to be leased as one soon! Wendy's haven't been there for about 12 months now I think. The Candy shop even longer. And Motoquip for years I think.

And the former Motoquip store is still for lease for more than 5 years now.

Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

The Myer Centre should be knocked down and rebuilt with retail and eateries on ground level, London Tavern on second floor with balcony, then floors of offices/apartments/hotel rooms on levels above. If Big W did move into mall it should be a combined Woolworths , Big W store. I remember a restaura...

Re: Harris Scarfe has gone broke

Some people have said they went broke in 2001 and then kept on operating so this could happen again. What rubbish, in 2001 there was no such thing as online shopping. The market was completely different back then. As a Wise Man once told us; "Once Upon A Time, our Daily Newspapers did genuinely car...

[COM] Re: Masters Adelaide Airport

There was an article in today’s Advertiser saying it’s a $15m cost for the conversion by Bunnings & it should be open by mid 2020. Bunnings seems to be killing all of the competition. Total tools in thebarton is now closed. Though the newest Total Tools in Windsor Gardens (the former Lloyds) has op...
