For a moment I thought that said Max Basheer :lol:
I would prefer Max Power.

Interesting.

Good coffee - made without bitterness from not cleaning coffee machines, right roasting temp. etc etc. You've got to go to genuine baristas to get the real stuff!
Not sure what brought that on, but truth! There's a new fad in NYC, Australian style flat whites, made by expat baristas.

Temt has vacated their mall location. Quite a massive store when I saw it empty today.

Not CBD retail related as didn't know where to put it in metropolitan forum.

Adelaide's first Tommy Hilfiger standalone store is opening in Burnside Village in October. Seems to have replaced Calvin Klein if I remember correctly.

Oddly enough, Temt have relocated into a large space on the second floor of the Myer Centre. When I went past the other day, it look relatively dead... Poor decision for a store that barely made a trade on Rundle Mall.

Are you sure it's a bad idea?

The Tempt on Rundle Mall billed themselves as a "pop up store". So maybe they are just filling temp leases?

Shows how much attention I've been paying, haha. The shopfront they were located in on Rundle Mall really needs some exterior work done to it, easily one of the ugliest shopfronts along that strip only beaten by the currency exchange next to the old Sturt Theatre.

Yes, it's starting to look a little thin in there. The food court's tenancy has been decimated and they keep moving the upper floors' shops down.

There's an Aquila in Adelaide?!

Guess that says it all really.

Temt have relocated to where the Book Boys were in Rundle Mall next to BankSA. The Book Boys are having a closing down sale in their site next to the recently vacated Live shopfront.

After the fake Japanese "dollar shop" opened and closed in Regent Arcade. The "kawaii" and inexplicably popular Daiso are opening in Adelaide. But wait... not in Rundle Mall after all... this must be the wrong thread because they are inexplicably opening in Hollywood Plaza.
:shock:
I think someone misread their demographics?

I would've thought Daiso would be perfect for the Hollywood Plaza demographic, but then there's already a Reject Shop and Knick Knacks there (unless Daiso is replacing one of them).

Surprised Parabanks didn't try and get them in as part of their 'expansion'.

Daiso is really good. For a cheap dollar shop the quality of product is surprisingly good because a lot of the products sold are actually made in Japan, not China.

We always go when visiting Melbourne or Sydney.
