Myer Tuggeranong to close

By cmdwedge - 16 December 2011 54

It would seem that Myer have decided against renewing their lease at the Tuggers Hyperdome.

All permanent staff will be moved to the City and Belconnen stores – still, bit of a pain for people who live in Tuggers and work there too.

Is this the death knell for the Hyperdome?

What’s Your opinion?

Or the death of big “premium” department stores like Myer?

I would say not, if Myer was doing well enough to prop up the rest of the centre then it probably wouldn’t be closing. That said, it is starting to seem like the Hyperdome is a bit too big in relation to local demand, so I’m not sure how they’ll fill all that space.

They’re opening in Woden Westfield in the near future – not fat at all.

Probably not the death knell but hasnt that been said virtually since the Hyperdome opened every time a “vital” business closed?

It’s odd to hear them closing in the bogandome.. Mind you, it’s been well over a year since I actually went into Myers there and well over 6 Years since I actually bought anything from Myers anywhere…

That’s a big blow to the already flagging ‘Dome. Shame as I always liked shopping there.

How will they fill they space?

I don’t it is quite the kiss of death for the Hyperdome, but gee it’s about the last thing they need.

I’m not sure what they could possibly do with that space. They already have k-mart and target. I doubt Big-W would be willing to come in and try their luck. I also have doubts that DJ’s would be interested.
I also expect that breaking the area up into 50 shops would result in 50 empty spaces where shops should be.

Oh, the Horrordome’s clever mangerial folk are already on top of it, judging by this.

Hardly surprising – they’ve been cutting staff to ridiculous levels for a few years. I stopped trying to buy things from them about eighteen months ago after wandering around stuff I wished to purchase for ten minutes – just looking for a register that was attended. First world problems, right?

I wonder where in Woden? Are DJs moving out?

I think its a safe bet.
I thought Big W were looking at moving to Tugg in given the DA that was posted a few weeks ago.

The population of Tuggeranong is at least three times that of Woden, even if you add Weston that make jst under half the population of Tuggeranong. With all the new development around the town centre and more residents moving in Myer should wait a bit longer and diversify the store a bit better.
Why would Tuggeranong residents visit the city store rather than Tuggeranong? as the media story suggests. Maybe the lower income of Tuggeranong don’t suit their clientele or are residents driving to DFO and Majura park.
