Given the state of retail, one would assume the extension is off again. :wallbash:
COVID-19 is making matters even worse.

[U/C] Re: Festival Plaza Redevelopment | $800 million

Does anyone know what's going on with those pop-up tenancies on the ramp by the way? Only Elementary ever seems to be open regularly now, and the makeup place sporadically - the others popped up, traded for a week and then seem to have remained shut ever since. The former newsagent next to the kios...

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.
