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: 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).

School Holidays – Auction Results

Today 2 out of 6 properties sold in our area. Both properties were strata properties in Cronulla. One of these sold prior to auction. This brings the auction clearance rate to a low 33% this week. There were actually 9 properties scheduled to go to auction but 4 of these were auctioned in one line (211 & 213 Willarong Road and 149 & 151 Caringbah Road, Caringbah). A dismal day for seller’s but it is the first weekend of the school holidays, perhaps buyers are in holiday mode.

School Holidays!

School holidays are never a great time to auction a property and last week was the perfect example. 2 nights of midweek auctions, the middle weekend of the school holidays and 3 Sunday auctions, culminated in a 25% clearance rate. Let’s blame the school holidays and the rain.

1 auction is scheduled this Anzac Day Long Weekend. Maybe we will achieve a 100% clearance rate for a change!
