Today saw the unveiling of the new Harris Scarfes' store in Rundle Mall. It was rebuilt on the old Harris Scarfes site and is now known as Rundle Place, consisting of 2 floors of Harris Scarfes, a food court, Coles, 70 Specialty shops and offices.
I decided to go in and meet Tony after work and go and check it out. What a lot of hoo-haa about nothing! But then again I suppose it is the media's and HS publicity department to talk it up seeing that shop retail sales is dwindling. Buying online seems to be most peoples preferred way of shopping these days.
Let's hope that in a few years it doesn't turn into a white elephant like the Myer Centre.
We went down to the lower ground floor to see what the food court was like. Hmm I wonder how long some of these places will stay in business. Will it be like the food court in David Jones? Some of the eateries were Fasta Pasta, Salsa (mexican), Subway, Warong, The House Yum Cha, T-Bar, Rheinland Bakery, Yiros, Fresh Junction, Sushi and Tepinyaki.
Tony and I decided to try the Mexican and so we had Nachos. The best Nachos we've ever had was while we were in Sydney and so we seem to compare all others to them. These weren't too bad, a bit too much tomato for my liking.
A stage had been set up out the front of Rundle Place and so we decided to hang around and watch the free concert. Justice Crew and The Collective were the two acts. Both groups were great but I loved The Collective. These were a group of young guys that had been put together while auditioning for the X Factor last year. They are supposed to be Australia's answer to One Direction!
Now "put your hands in the air, get your hands in the air......" seemed to be the catchcry of the evening.
