Kings Rd should have been done a long time ago, but it's a safe Labor seat so gets overlooked.

Re: Harris Scarfe has gone broke

A pity to see them downsize, they are my favorite department store.

There's always good things for sale, such as manchester, jumpers and homewares. Kmart and Big W is all synthetic stuff. At Harris you can get wool quilts, feather pillows and wool jumpers.
