and as luck would have it, I was booked in today for my mothers day treat… they called and rescheduled me to have it in belconnen instead.


hopefully they are up and running again soon.

Funny, when I rang to make the appointment, they said they were ‘closed for maintenance’ on Monday. Doubt they were wanting this much maintenance to be done!!!

Seems like it was the Foot and Thai shop that went up in smoke, shame really, they provide a fantastic service.

they have a small blurb regarding it on their homepage:

“Please be advised that due to a fire, our Phillip shop will unfortunately be CLOSED until further notice.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, but this is obviously due to circumstances beyond our control.”
