The Winter Holidays Mall Report – June 2015

IMG_20150630_152406With almost weekly posts in Sydneywide blogs and print media on all the latest Cronulla food eateries opening and established businesses getting their well-earned mentions, Cronulla is now a 4 season, busy beachside hub. Combined with school holiday activities such as Cronulla on Ice, winter in Cronulla has been particularly hectic this week and businesses are enjoying the crowds.

IMAG4696_1Starting from the South, Gelatissimo will open for business in September and its location will make Cronulla the last Sydney beachside suburb for the popular gelato chain.

The Best Little Bookshop In Town has well and truly settled into their new location, great to see the former Australand Greenhills Beach shop front finally filled up!

 

IMG_20150630_153503After months of uncertainty, the iconic, heritage listed Commonwealth Bank has been sold to local developers…

Heading east opposite South Cronulla Beach, the highly talked about Eat Burger Cronulla (opened by locals of Mims Espresso and Eatery in Burraneer) is starting to take shape and is set to open in mid July where the Balkan Restaurant once sat.

IMAG4699_1_1Continuing north, Earth Angels have moved and we are patiently waiting for new organic store Naked Foods to open for business next to Cold Rock Ice Creamery.

At the top end of the Mall, popular clothing store Flirty is now Loft 18 and below Cronulla Cinemas, the shop fronts of McDonalds and Firstech Computers still sit empty, waiting to see who will move in…

2015-06-30_15.28.58A new temporary addition to the Mall for the winter school holidays is the popular Cronulla CBD’s ‘Cronulla on Ice’, don’t forget to book!

Cronulla Mall Report: March 2015

IMG_20150317_135440Our iconic Cronulla Mall has seen many changes during the first quarter of 2015 and we bet there’s more to come!

Starting from the northern end of the Mall, Paco Organico (formerly Bass & Flinders) has moved in. Firstech Computers below Cronulla Cinema’s still sits empty waiting to be leased while further down Flirty has also closed its doors as of yesterday…

2015-03-17_14.54.56_1Clothing store Code Orange is no longer and Wholesale Outlet has moved in. Another clothing store Lemon Jelly (formerly Velvet Jayne) is also closing down with 50-80% off storewide.

Surrounded by state election signs and campaigners, the iconic former Commonwealth Bank landmark is still for lease, when will any one ever move in?!

After no luck leasing the former Greenhills Australand office, it is now going to auction on 30th April, watch this space!

Get ready for next summer (or hopefully some warmer weather later this year) with 10-50% off all summer stock at Pure Sea surf shop.

2015-03-17_14.58.51Coming to the end of the Mall, the left side of Eclectic Home & Garden still sits empty…

Cronulla Mall Report: Spring 2014

IMAG0684_1Welcome to Spring! So far we’ve had rain, wind and more rain, but we’re hoping for clear, sunny days next weekend for Cronulla’s annual Spring Festival! We heard The Flying Pig Collective will be here with the best pulled pork!

After bracing the cold, windy, drizzly weather today, we’re happy to announce there’s quite a few changes since our last report!

IMAG0659Walking to the Mall from the carpark, the first thing you’ll spot is the new Protein Bar in the corner, we’re yet to try it out but we’ve heard good things!

Once you’re in the Mall, you’ll notice a few updates:

  • The former Commonwealth Bank building is now a warehouse expo for a 14 day sale
  • Renovations near Code Orange
  • Kurrabar Cafe are hiring staff
  • Cronulla Pie Shop’s awning is still yet to be replaced
  • Australand’s Greenhills Beach shop is still vacant, feels like forever!
  • Body Pro Supplements store also for lease – sign says deposit has been taken, wonder what’s moving in here?!
  • Eclectic Home & Garden has split in two and word on the street is that a real estate franchise is moving in
  • The Lucky Dragon has new windows
  • Renovations near the southern newsagency (train station end)

IMAG0682Outside the Mall, Oporto has downsized to make room for new coffee shop Bianchini’s Espresso on the corner. They’re still working on the shop but hopefully it will open soon!

Next door, Balkan Restaurant is also renovating, plenty of changes to come!

Further down by the beach Simone’s on the Park still sits empty. We’d heard plans for a gym but no action has taken place. Hopefully someone will take advantage of the great location!

Leaving the Mall heading into the carpark you’ll notice the upgrades taking place in Croydon St carpark, hopefully this will ease traffic congestion!

Cronulla Mall Report: It’s April already!

photo 1 (2)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.

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.

photo 2 (2)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!

photo (18)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!

Starting from the soBeach Shack closing downuthern end of the Mall, the bright pink, vibrant Yogurberry has opened where Stevie & Me once was.

Chocpad is still vacant and For Lease, any ideas what will move in here?

Sadly there will soon be another vacant store… Beach Shack is closing down. Their last day of trading will be Wednesday 22nd January.

The Commonwealth Bank sits quietly in the Mall with a DA for a mix of residential and commercial shops…. Watch this space!

20140111_092103Walking through the Mall there are still plenty of post-Christmas sales to take advantage of!

If you’re looking for breakfast you’ll have to get in early, the cafe’s are filled by 9am!

20140111_094800At the end of the Mall on the Kingsway underneath Cronulla Cinemas, Soho Coffee is set to move in shortly.

And that concludes the first Mall Report of 2014! No doubt we’ll see some more changes in the Mall over the year, stay tuned!

From all of us at Beach & Bay, we hope you had a wonderful Christmas & New Year, now it’s time to get back into it!

Cronulla Mall Report: Sales, sales, sales!

Finally we’re seeing some winter sun!

The Mall is full of mid-year sales! Prices have been marked down throughout the Mall at Butiga, Freelance Shoes, Stevie & Me, Sentier, Dreamshack and almost everywhere in between!

The old Vodafone shop next to the ANZ Bank remains unoccupied with many For Lease signs in the window with the former Payless Shoes store a few doors down also still vacant.

Speaking of shoes, the Shoe Superstore has re-opened under new management in its original position in the Mall with up to 50% off in store.

Berkelouw Books are looking for a new staff member, check out their window for more details.

With a bright new fresh shop front, Cronulla welcomes Fingertipz to the Mall, occupying L.A Trend’s former position. Opposite the new nail salon Cronulla’s iconic Post Office is undergoing some maintenance with a new coat of paint.

Next to Subway the old Gloria Jeans store is now a construction zone, making way for the new Commonwealth Bank premises.

In Surf Rd Groundbake is doing a great trade. Next door sits Cronulla’ empty Little Shoe Shop, which will soon be transformed into a new hairdressing salon. New restaurant Hunt & Gather is also becoming very popular!

Vinnies are enjoying their new position between IGA and Cronulla Fruitland, however the Fruitland is still closed.

Cronulla welcomes new hair salon The Place which has opened up next to South of the Border overlooking Monro Park, currently greener and brighter than ever thanks to all the rain we’ve had lately!

Interested in owning a business in the Mall? Dreamshack is currently For Sale.

As always there are some great school holiday activities on offer from Cronulla CBD to keep the kids occupied – Mini Putt Golf at the Pavilion (1 – 5 July) and the Cronulla Clue Challenge (8– 12 July).
