What’s going in at the new Bonner Shops?

By 20 December 2011 12

I’ve heard the new shops at Bonner are due to open in March 2012.

Does anyone have the low-down on what we’re getting? So far I’ve heard rumour of Woolies and Chicken Gourmet.

I suspect we’re in for the standard franchises so would I be foolish to hold my breath for a nice coffee shop?

Woolies for sure.

Can’t wait though, that 10 minute drive to Gunners Shops is unbearable. Actually its more the parking and the badly planned roads that is annoying about Gunghalin Shops.

I got a flyer in my letterbox on the weekend from Coffee Guru looking for a franchisee to run their new store opening in Bonner in March 2012… looks promising!

Yup. Surely it’s only a matter of time before people are avoiding that place in droves.
(more and more like a 20-year-delayed replay of Tuggy TC, now that I think about it)

There are heaps of well established suburbs that don’t have a decent cafe, hopefully Bonner doesn’t get lucky so soon, haha!

I also heard there was going to be a Liquor Land as part of Woolies and a Chicken Gourmet…

I was talking with EDD reps yesrerday. The for sale signs are likely to go up on the Amaroo Group Centre land (behind the servo) in March or April. Any supermarket other than Coles or Woollies, 3500sqm, plus a delightful shopping village about Manuka size.

Al – you and the OP are talking about two different developments though, right?

Coffee shop would be nice, I heard that they would be selling liquor there, don’t know how well that goes being right across from the school.

I don’t see why people like to link liquor shops being near schools to being a terrible thing? Do people really think that the primary school kids are going to pop across to woolies liquor a lunchtime for a 6 pack of VB? I think that if you look at a good proportion of schools, there’s likely to be a supermarket + liquor somewhere within 500m and has no impact on them.

One thing that would suck about the bonner shops is the poor people who live immediately behind them with an excellent view of a big brick wall and loading dock of the woolies. Another brilliant gungahlin design..

At times it’s very convenient to have a pub/licensed café near a school (even for the parents). I managed to get two vodkas down during the five hour end-of-year extravaganza recently. Thanks Tilley’s, you saved my life that night.

I don’t really find this study that thrilling (I mean, what comes first?) but I think it is pretty good timing in relation to some of these comments! Hahahaha! ;-)
