All Bar Nun to close by 1 February?

The Canberra Times has the horrific news that O’Connor’s All Bar Nun has been ordered out by the landlords:

The new landlords bought the building in late 2010. They were not available for comment yesterday, but it’s understood they are planning to open a new bar on the site.

Despite the setback in O’Connor, the owners of All Bar Nun are also proceeding with plans to open a restaurant and bar at Griffith shops.

The development, in a former Chinese restaurant, is expected to be open for business within a matter of weeks.

So if you want a sneaky pint in the sun there’s not much time.

One hopes the landlords will not drag the chain in opening the new premises.

I can see it being turned into something like SubUrban in Dickson or Public in Manuka. Seems like they have a formula, and now they just punch them out.

I’m not that bothered if ABN stays or goes. What I’d like to see is a bit more competition for the IGA there – it’s expensive, has a crappy range of products and staffed by people who couldn’t give a toss.

Maybe we could move the Northside contractors on to greener pastures and use that space for some useful shops (eg baker, Deli, decent cafe, newsagent, [insert own preference]).

I shop there a bit because its convenient for me living in Turner. I don’t do big shops there but go there fairly regularly. Your delusional if you think small shops like that can charge the same as the big supermarkets. I don’t mind paying more for the convenience of local shops.

Well, after pulling this stunt a couple of times one would think that such a landlord would gain a reputation as being someone that small businesses don’t want to do business with.

Sure. If you, as a small busines, have an alternate location/landlord to use. Not if you are leasing from one of the larger shopping centre operators or the owner of the entire shopping centre in your suburb. Or if the landlord changes part way through your lease.

Sure, it doesn’t help the small businesses that have been screwed over, but it does punish the landlord, so this should act as some kind of deterrent.
