Cronulla Mall Report: Back to beach weather!

IMG_20141031_124437What 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.

IMAG1024We 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.

IMAG1029_1Forever 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?

Where la luna was on top end of mallNutrition 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!

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!

Sadly Chocpad has closed and the shop is now up For Lease.

photo 5Further 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.

photo 10The old Vinnies store on Gerrale St (which was For Lease) is now boarded up, any ideas what’s moving in here?

Cronulla Mall Report: Mid-Spring Update

photo 1Clipper 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?

photo 2“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…

photo 3Old Vinnies store on Gerrale St is covered with For Lease signs, hopefully another opportunity for a new business to open up.

Cronulla Mall Report: Sun, Sales & Spring Around The Corner

The Mall is filled with winter sun and winter sales making room for new spring stock in the coming weeks!

Starting from the northern end, the old Vodafone store still remains vacant as it has for some time now. I felt sorry for photo 4the lady from ANZ who had to stand out the front telling people the bank and ATM were closed due to a power failure! Meanwhile Cotton On have well and truly opened next to Cronulla Pie Shop.

The iconic Commonwealth Bank has officially relocated to the smaller premises down the Mall next to Subway and Allouche’s Café & Eatery, which is currently undergoing some renovations. Also the old CBA premises is for lease and word is it has been divided into 3…

photo 3The Embassy have moved into the former newsagency next to Toni & Guy and are advertising pies, cakes and fresh sandwiches to come soon. Not sure when the new store will be open but we will keep you updated…

At the southern end of the Mall Lodown have 20% of all winter stock and jeans while the newly established hairdresser next to South of the Border, The Place, are looking for a full-time stylist – apply within.

20130813_111709Council work continues in several prime spots in Cronulla including the crossing near Oporto and on the grass at South Cronulla Beach near the Surf Club. They better hurry up as the Spring Fair is just around the corner!

Rumour has it that the former restaurant Simone’s on the Park overlooking South Cronulla Beach will soon become either Hurricane’s Bar & Grill or a gym, only time will tell…

photo 9If you think the weather is unseasonably hot, the real estate market in Cronulla and surrounding suburbs is even hotter. Fuelled by low interest rates and a severe shortage of stock,  prices are on the up and up as multiple buyers compete for the very few properties in our highly sought after area. Beach & Bay Realty just sold 13 Seaforth Ave, Woolooware (due to go to auction on 31st August) in just 5 days and 1 open house.

Anyone thinking of selling call us now and enjoy the benefits of this perfect seller’s market.

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).

Mall Report: Cronulla is changing

It’s been a while between reports, what can I say I’ve been waiting for the 2 wine bars to open, yes that’s right not just Johnny of Bacchus fame has opened up a wine bar but also Carlita’s will soon have a new owner and name and we hear it’s all about wine.

So on this gorgeous Cronulla day I started at the north end of the Mall at Croydon Lane Wine & Tapas Bar which opened to the public on the weekend, the small wine bar movement has arrived in Cronulla… Hopefully Johnny will still let me in after I tried to gate crash the family/friend opening, oops.

The Japanese restaurant, Kanakawa which was next door to the wine bar has moved a little south into the Mall and its former premises is for lease. Popular Bass & Flinders Cafe is next door and has a muffin and coffee deal for $6.

I then headed to Simply Delicious and met Toby the owner of Cronulla’s latest cake shop, the special occasion cakes and cupcakes rival any of the Planet Cake creations, a welcome addition to the Cronulla food scene.

A quick stop at Apache Rose to check out their latest gift and homewares collection and then back into the Mall. Sadly it seems Holy Fire is gone? Does anyone know what happened?

Heading south the Mall is buzzing with activity on such a stunning day.

The artisan bakery next to Cronulla Arts Theatre must be close to opening but Ocean 7, the Harvey World Travel and Ray White’s shops sit empty.

A bit further south the Douglas Hanly Moir pathology office has opened, convenient but boring I move on to the Chocpad, Cronulla’s latest offering for the sweet tooths.

As usual the Best Little Bookshop in Town has a great quote for the day, Monro Park is full of picnickers, latte drinkers and toddlers and the gardens are immaculate as always.

Starting with a wine bar I end with a future wine bar, Carlita’s has been sold and we hear the new owner is opening a wine bar… Cronulla is changing.
