I dont whinge often but I was roaming the Westfield Woden/Woden plaza on Saturday and Sunday for some mother’s day stuff and I was amazed at the number of those little crappy stores they have setup in the middle of the walkways.
From memory there was a:
- — Sock store
— Perfume store
— Car > fund raiser ticket seller
— Foxtel display
— Roof repair
— Window Double glaizing
— Charity of some sort
— Ugg boot seller
— Gardening tools
All in that short run between Michael Hill and the top near the fruit shop
There was literally no space to walk around these things and those with strollers/trolleys were just waiting for a spot to get through.
I don’t mind the random one here or there (except those ones that try rub some sort of moisturiser? into my hands) but the over crowdedness, shabby look, and general frustration that they cause shoppers must piss off more locals then just I.
Maybe they were just for Mothers day weekend? Its not as if Westfield are hard up for cash.. or are they? can anyone that works near by contribute a photo here? [ED – pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org]
