What a day! October has almost ended and it feels like Summer already!
Firstly, if any one is looking for last minute Halloween costumes and accessories pop into Dollar King in the Mall, it has it all!
Fingers crossed the weather stays this wonderful for the weekend, especially with the Beachfest on at Dunningham Park, Peryman Square and the Plaza. Retro cars will be on display for judging and awards with live bands and solo performers over the two days.
Starting from the south, half of Eclectic Home & Garden sits empty waiting for a new shop owner.
We finally have a new tenant in the former Chocpad shop – Leah’s Wax Works has moved in! Further down the mall Classic Nails Beauty and Waxing has also moved into the former Body Pro Supplements store.
Unfortunately we’re still eagerly waiting to see who will eventually move into the old Australand Greenhills Beach office.
Forever Fashion are closing down with 50% of storewide. I wonder what new store will appear here?!
The optometrists near Code Orange are surrounded by builders and scaffolding, a new store layout perhaps?
Nutrition station is opening soon where La Luna was and the local computer store next door to McDonalds and the Cronulla Cinemas entrance has also closed.
Closer to the beach new coffee shop Bianchini’s is doing a roaring trade, looks like a popular spot!
With all the rain and bleak weather lately, Summer has well and truly left our sights as we head into the colder months…
Walking down the Mall from the north end, Little Paw Café has added some colour to the Mall with their bright umbrellas, similar to Oregano Café’s colourful outdoor setting.
There are some Autumn sales throughout the Mall – Forever Fashion has 20-40% off selected items and Freelance Shoes is offering a “buy 1 pair and get the 2nd pair half price” sale for all you shoe lovers.
The former iconic Commonwealth Bank is still For Lease and has been for quite a long time now. Chocpad also remains vacant with For Lease signs in the window as well.
Opposite South Cronulla Beach, Splatt “Coffee By Day, Wine By Night” has new signage up and looks ready to open the doors shortly we hope.
Simone’s On The Park still remains vacant, will anything ever re-open here?!
Just walked past Beach & Bay’s sold sticker on 5/5 McDonald St which went up last night. Happy days for our vendors and purchasers. We love selling in Cronulla, now a food, wine and property hot spot! Cronulla is well and truly on the map!
The Cronulla Easter Show is only 10 days away, time to prepare ourselves for a weekend full of activities, show bags, rides, food and of course, chocolate! See you there!
With 2013 almost over, Christmas two days away and school holidays well under way, the Mall is busier than ever!
Starting at the south, Monro Park is bright and beautiful in colour while the former Peking Duck Chinese Restaurant has a new look and name – “Lucky Dragon”.
Sadly Chocpad has closed and the shop is now up For Lease.
Further north Yogurberry has opened, trading between 10:30am and 12am 7 days a week.
On the corner the iconic former Commonwealth Bank building is still up For Lease, will this space ever be occupied again?!
Code Orange has well and truly settled into the former Vodafone store.
The old Vinnies store on Gerrale St (which was For Lease) is now boarded up, any ideas what’s moving in here?
Renovations at Cronulla RSL have proved to be very popular attracted a very large audience over the weekend with queues lined up out the door! Opposite the RSL, Pilgrims Cronulla recently opened and are ready for business over the summer at their new location for those of you who aren’t heading down the South Coast!
On Elouera Rd, bright and colourful Old Joe’s has split Northies into two. Has anyone been here yet? Still yet to visit.
From all of us at Beach & Bay Realty, we wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year! See you in 2014!
Clipper City on the Kingsway opened last week, we wish them all the best!
The old Vodafone store is finally occupied! Code Orange has moved in with a variety of clothing and accessories.
Kurrabar café (formerly Stonefish) next to Decisions Decisions opened today, has anyone tried it? Let us know what you think!
Dreamshack has a For Lease sign above it, any ideas what will take its place in the mall? Possibly another café, Mexican or Japanese restaurant?! The For Lease sign still sits behind the glass in the old Commonwealth Bank, still wondering what will happen to this iconic building?
“The Shire” local bank has opened up next to Mad Mex, does anyone know if this is the new name of the Sutherland Credit Union? Or a brand new bank?
Chocpad has re-opened but you have to get in fast on the busier nights or you’ll be left out in the cold! They seem to open later in the day now but stay open later at night for dessert.
Simone’s On The Park is still vacant overlooking South Cronulla. Rumours were that a gym was moving in but so far there has been no action…
Old Vinnies store on Gerrale St is covered with For Lease signs, hopefully another opportunity for a new business to open up.
Today was yet another perfect day in the Mall. After the Spring Festival over the weekend, Cronulla seemed to be on the quiet side of things this week, waiting for the crowds to swarm again when the school holidays roll in next week, fingers crossed for even better weather!
While strolling down the Mall today enjoying the gorgeous weather there weren’t too many changes to report on…
Starting from the northern end down by the beach near Hogs Breath Cafe a new Italian restaurant, Giro Osteria, has popped up. As I made my way back to the Mall it was no surprise to see that the old Vodafone store is still for lease, will anyone ever move in here?!
Walking down the Mall there are a few sales here and there – Blue Illusion are offering a further 50% off reduced stock, Dutchee Dutchee have half price sales racks inside and loads more.
Bread & Stone have cemented their place in the Mall while Chocpad still remains closed, does anyone know what’s going on?
The two relatively new additions to the Mall in Surf Rd, Groundbake Artisan Bakery & Cronulla Hair seem to be doing reasonably well.
Renovations are happening at the former Beaches premises overlooking South Cronulla while around the corner the former Vinnies store is up for lease, any ideas what might fit in here? Watch this space!
With this small changes put aside, the Mall remains reasonably unchanged, for now…. Hopefully Spring has more of this weather in store for us over the next two months before things really start to heat up!
