The Canberra Times brings word that the Airport’s Brand Depot factory outlet is surrendering in the long war against Fyshwick’s DFO.
Brand Depot at Canberra Airport is closing, ending one of the territory’s fiercest retail wars.
Airport managing director Stephen Byron said a third of the 75 discount shops were vacant and four more shops would close over the weekend, while traders say 24 will go over the next three weeks.
Mr Byron said in the depressed retail industry, the factory outlet model’s failure was widespread.
Majura Park, however, lives on with the Costco monster about to open and active advertisement underway.
