Re: News & Discussion: CBD Retail

Because you can just download pretty much every single video game online now? Piracy and DRM is killing the physical games market. People just steal games by downloading from torrent sites. Major companies like Nintendo, Microsoft, Sony, Blizzard, Rockstar Games, Ubisoft and EA Games have been usin...

EB Games in City Cross is one of four stores in SA to meet its end.
The other three are at Harbortown, Hallet Cove and Brickworks Marketplace.

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...

Travel Money Oz on Grenfell St (south side) has been transformed into a new Flight Centre branch.
Good idea in my opinion because the one on the north side closed a few years ago.

Forever New at city cross also opened today.
Former Billy Baxters now converted into 'CofTea' after sitting dormant for three years.
I almost want them to fail with a name as terrible as that.
Between the trade names, there was 'Dorsal Fin' and 'Fig Jam'.

Slice Of Brooklyn is relocating to Tea Tree Plaza (next to Phone Planet).
Relocating, or opening up a new store at TTP while keeping the current CBD store?
Relocating indeed. Just saw a closure notice in the CBD store.

Long time lurker first time poster here.

Heard today that Coles at Arndale will be closing in early February.
Perhaps something to do with the previously mentioned Stage 5 redevelopment??
I remember when it was BI-LO.
