The Canberra Times has a bit on the weakness in Canberra’s retail sector.
Who would have thought that opening vast acreages of shopping space could have consequences?
Who could have predicted that there wasn’t actually unlimited numbers of consumers in Canberra just waiting for sufficiently salubrious retail opportunities in which to splurge?
Pretty much anyone with a brain actually.
Having said that. Canberra Centre on Saturday, madness eh? It certainly felt like a limitless pool of slack-jawed yokels milling aimlessly in every choke point.
