Cronulla Mall Report: Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

photo 41With 2013 almost over, Christmas two days away and school holidays well under way, the Mall is busier than ever!

photo 2Starting 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.

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?

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!

photo 5 (2)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!

Cronulla Mall Report: Spring Has Sprung!

1Today 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…

photo 12aStarting 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.

3Bread & 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.photo 6

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!

 

2With 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!

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.

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!
