DFO Canberra opens on Friday

By johnboy - 10 September 2008 43

For reasons that are slightly beyond me there’s a huge amount of buzz out there about the opening on Friday of the Direct Factory Outlets (DFO) location in Fyshwick.

Anyway, the doors open at 10am this Friday.

So the wait is nearly over.

Other obligations notwithstanding we’ll try and get out there to take a look and get back to you. Any experienced shoppers wanting to contribute their expertise should email john@the-riotact.com .

What’s Your opinion?

Tarted-down don’t you mean?

You can’t imagine all these brand name stores would have such a swathe of cast-offs, overruns, last season’s etc to fill five or whatever bloody DFO warehouse shops across the country.

Just sounds like a tarted up Westfield.

It’s hilarious that it is called Direct Factory Outlet….ummmm…. don’t think so.

10am? in the morning? Well the people with money to spend are off earning it at that time! At 10am you’ll have housewives with screaming kids trying to park their barges. Good place to stay away from I reckon.

Yeah, I think DFO’s website is just a bit fuxored. They don’t list any of the major retailers that are listed on the floorplan, ie:

* JB Hi-Fi
* Clive Anthony’s (not Joyce Mayne as I previously mentioned 🙂
* Nick Scali
* Freedom
* Beacon Lighting
* Howards Storage World
* Rays Outdoors
* Captain Snooze
* Oz Design
* BBQ’s Galore

A small oversight.

Hi Sammy,

I think that some of the stores like Freedom are part of the “Homemaker Hub” which is kind of seperate to DFO and opening at a later date….

Well I’ll be going tomorrow night. 😛

I would have thought that to be a “Direct Factory Outlet”, a store would have to be in, or at least adjacent to, the factory.

Sammy 10:49 am 10 Sep 08

Actually, it seems like the DFO website has just left the entire purple section off the store listing, which as far as i’m concerned are the drawcard stores. Doh!

Will Snowy be launching any last minute court action to have the place shut down?

JB HiFi have a sign on the outside entry so they will be there. Pity Ikea’s snubbed the region again . . .

Sammy 10:41 am 10 Sep 08

I was going to say that it’s more interesting than Brand Outlet because they have a better range of stores, but having just looked at the store directory on the linked website, it actually looks quite lame.

What happened to JB Hi-Fi, Joyce Mayne, Freedom etc? None of those are in the store list on the official website.

caf 10:27 am 10 Sep 08

Obviously not, or the free market wouldn’t be providing us with more 😉

johnboy 10:25 am 10 Sep 08

apparently not…?

Ralph 10:23 am 10 Sep 08

Haven’t we got enough shops already? Fair dinkum.
