Don’t believe the HYPE?

By 31 August 2010 11

Hyperdome sign on the fritz

Swaggie sent this one in with the following note:

Taken on a cold rainy night last week outside the Hyperdome main entrance the sign sums up what many Residents feel about our local Shopping centre. Plenty of hype and very little of substance.

It really is a pretty crappy mall. A lot of outlets are empty, never opened, or really crappy shops. Knowing someone that worked on their info desk downstairs, all I can say about management is that they wouldn’t know their arsehole from their ear hole.

Obviously why the sign only reads “hype” now.

Clearly then they are ready for a career in politics.

It was just very badly designed and is in the wrong location – 100 metres away from Pine Island f’goodness sake. I don’t know what funny cigarettes the planners were partaking of in the 1970s when they designed that particular town centre.

I don’t think it was drugs. I think the planners just wanted to design a lower class, crime ridden area South of Mt Taylor.

All the other town centres are, well, in the centre of a town. Never figured out why tuggranong is on the edge, well away from everybody.

What is the “hyper” in hyperdome meant to represent anyway? Are the owners suggesting that kids in Tuggeranong have ADHD moreso than the kids in other areas of Canberra? ;)

“Hyper” has such negative connotations. Hyperdome = stupid name for a bunch of shops.

Bunchashops, Spendadome, Spendyerdole – plenty of better names for the thing ;)

I’m fairly certain most of the malls I’ve been to in the ACT all have shop areas which aren’t currently occupied, it’s actually pretty normal.

The Tuggeranong Town Centre has four supermarkets, a food court, revamped affordable cinemas, free parking on the weekends (which no other mall in the ACT has) and it has some pretty good reasonably priced restaurants.

In all honesty I go to a mall to buy groceries, occasionally see a movie or have a meal out. Unless a mall is unsafe, unclean or closed at an inappropriate time I’ve got no issue with it. I’d much rather be spending my time somewhere other than at a mall instead of finding every trivial fault with a place and posting it on a public forum.

It would be interesting to know how many people who have posted on this thread actually live in Tuggeranong.
