DFO wins the war – not quite

By AdamH 2 March 2011 21

Recent news that Brand Depot is closing is now unfortunately joined by news that the DFO may be placed into liquidation in the Canberra Times), as the owners of the DFO shopping centres face over a billion dollars in debt.

With news of SupaBarn closing as well, are we left with the Westfield shopping centres only?

What’s Your opinion?

Finally, every time I’ve been out there I’ve seen the exact same things, for the exact same prices as the normal stores… Infact the only difference I have seen is some of the stores have the words “factory outlet” plastered underneath the sign.

If Brand Depot and DFO weren’t just paying lip service to the “factory outlet” model I’d go back there. DFO, Harbour Town etc sit on cheaper land away from the town centres because they know people will tolerate it for a good bargain. I would. Without the bargain they’re just poorly located malls.
