What happened to the HUB Asian groceries?

By bloodymary - 16 September 2010 19

I was just wondering what happened to The Hub Asian groceries?

Both shops from Gunghulin and Belconnen area were closed almost a month ago now.

The next thing i saw from the Belconnen grocery, the business is on lease.

I love The Hub, it’s loaded with choices and diverse asian flavours!

What’s Your opinion?

In fact the Hub is a lot cheaper than the other Asian grocery markets, well at least for food items that i always buy. I hope there will be good investors out there. I still prefer the variety in Hub than others.

Kevin 22 – yes you are a troublemaker. I actually know the owners quite well and you obviously have no idea what you are talking about and should maybe mind your own business!!

Go and get a life I say and maybe find something better to do then post untrue information on the net – trouble maker no 1 (and loser!!).

Trouble maker number one… on all the net…!

Simple answer, BANKRUPT.

Not sure if its related, but on a coast trip a couple of years ago, I pulled into Nelligen to see The Hub van pulling a nice fishing boat up the boatramp. They obviously cant have been making too much of a loss, or maybe they spent all their time at the coast once the money was good.

Yes, that was the good time when business is booming.
Currently the bank is trying to sell the business.

In Tuggers, the little asian take-away directly opposite Ojo’s is selling pork rolls now, same price as the Hub at $5

Does anyone know of another place that makes the Banh Mi style pork rolls?

The cafe/bakery in Newcastle street fyshwick next to Clarks rubber $4.50. close your eyes and you’re in saigon without the sewer smell and the you buy you buy you buy ringing in your ears

There was a sign in the front window of the Belconnen one saying that it was closed indefinately.

It’s been gone from Tuggers for ages as well. Such a shame.

Its gone. Build a bridge and get over it. Angkor Wat in belconnen has extended and is very good.

Ok here is a bit of a history about HUB.
The first shop opened in Gungahlin. The business in gungahlin is doing quite well. So the owner decided to open another 2 shop in Tuggeranong and Belconnen.
About a year later, the Tuggeranong closed down, which left with Gungahlin and Belconnen.
Now, both store closed down because the business has gone bankrupt.

The reason for the business failure because:
1. Why would you open 2 store at the same time? shouldn’t you just open one at a time and sees how it goes.
2. In Belconnen, there is already 3-5 Asian Groceries store in the area and they’re much cheaper and provide a much more friendly experience.
3. HUB sell everything expensive, it almost twice as expensive as the other Asian Groceries in the area. The reason for this is because HUB is leasing in an area that is high in rent.
