I took a trip to DFO yesterday. It seemed surprisingly busy, at least compared to previous visits. However, there are a large number of the big shops still empty. (As an aside, could these be used to house Canberra’s homeless?) And I know a bored look on a teenage girl isn’t unusual, but some of them didn’t look like they’ve had an exciting day. I didn’t venture to Brand Depot, although we like to visit every so often and try to remember what store used to occupy a now empty shop.
There was an interesting article in the CT at the start of the year about DFO and Brand Depot, or should that be an article about the lack of interest in DFO and Brand Depot. Given the ongoing GFC, does anyone know how things are going at either?
Also interesting the story in RA on the upcoming Brand Depot opening and potential traffic problems. At least they got that bit right, although I doubt it has anything to do with BD.
