Re: Old David Jones & John Martins photos?

Johnnies was not just a great place to shop but it was an Adelaide icon & fantastic corporate citizen.

The Christmas Pageant is its legacy and it will also be remembered for bringing the Beatles to Adelaide.

Re: New Flight Simulator in Adelaide

I think this may be aimed more at corporates than the public.

For example, the company I work for recently sent one of our teams there for a half day "team building" event.

Unfortunately I wasn't included.

Money isn't as big a concern for companies.

According to the Target website the Pasadena Target store will open in February 2012. Note this won't be a full line Target store, but rather, their new "Urban" smaller store format. From the Target website: Urban by Target, Target's new smaller store format gives city shoppers access to a specifica...

[PRO] Re: #Proposed - Castle Plaza redevelopment

OK - Interesting. Must admit I hardly ever go to Kuralta Park Shopping Centre - unless driving past. I wouldn't call it a destination shopping centre. Will be good once castle Plaza receives a facelift - it is looking very tired. Does any one know what tenants will be moving in - I assume an extra d...

[PRO] Re: #Proposed - Castle Plaza redevelopment

Such is the scale and proximity that owners of Centro Kurralta Park are sh!tt!ing themselves due to the expected negative impact on their trading. Even those behind a new supermarket proposed for the corner of marion rd/anzac hwy are concerned enough to put their plans on hold. Isn't Kurralta Park ...

Re: #APP? Cumberland Park Shopping Centre Redevelopment

Anyone got any updates on this project? I would love to see this site redeveloped into something better as it is currently a very tired and neglected centre. Has a great location & the BigW there is bigger than normal & also has a decentish garden centre - something other Big W's don't have (eg Mari...

Re: New Retail in the CBD

Would be great if we can get some life into the mall after hours.
Opening up the laneways with cafes & bars is a great idea in my view.
Time will tell if the council can pull off their strategy.

There's also a biggish Toyworld down at Harbour Town.
After years of closing down stores they seem to be back in a growth phase.

Re: Old David Jones & John Martins photos?

Thanks (also) for the pics.
Johnnies Rundle Mall was a great place to shop & an Adelaide icon.
I still miss it.

Anyone have any idea why Toys R Us aren't at Marion?
They are the only big retailer who aren't represented.
The ex Cheap as Chips store (now Cotton on Clothing) would have been an ideal size for them.
Marion lacks a decent toy store in my view.

Re: New Retail in the CBD

The Tiser reported this morning that K-Mart is taking over the Toys R Us space in the Renaisance Tower after Christmas.
This will be there first multi level store in Australia.
Just need Big W to open up and all the big natioanl retailers will have a store in the Mall.
