    Surprised they didnt relocate surplus stock to other stores.

  •  

    When I went to Fairfield over the weekend the stock left wasn't amazing. Most core lines look to have been moved to other stores and the leftover stock wasn't great. But at 50% could be worthwhile to head back

  •  

    Won’t be a lot left in those suburbs. The type of people to negotiate with you for an hour to get a $3 discount.

      the Big W experiment to take up leases in less frequented/dormant shopping centres wasn't a great idea.

        Unfortunately good retail management has been lacking at Woolworths group for at least 10 years. Especially the Masters debacle, which should have been an easy victory.

        Most of the only thing they've successfully done in that time is financial management i.e cost control.

        The Fairfield store has been there for 30 years, it ain't new. The Chullora one has probably been there just as long. People are just doing their shopping at larger complexes and these one haven't grown with the times

          The Fairfield store has been there for 30 years, it ain't new

          Since when? Pretty sure they moved in after Target left mid-2000s. Neeta City itself is barely 30 years old.

          •  

            @kerfuffle: Wasnt the target on one level and the big w on the other?

            Just as a side note Kmart was in the Forum which I hear is dead these days

            •  

              @Jackson: It wasn't there when this guy's family bought it, otherwise I'm sure he would have mentioned Big W

              Big W was definitely at Stockland Wetherill Park 30 years ago or at least 26 years ago; my parents used to buy me stuff from Wendy's before we walked into Big W

              •  

                @kerfuffle: My parents used to buy me stuff from what I rated as the best fish n chips ever before the big renovation. They are still there now but it's not quite the same.

                You may be right, I may be crazy, I just remember that there was a Target in Neeta City and another big dept store right above it, I thought it was Big W but maybe not?

            •  

              @Jackson: Kmart's still in the Forum. There also used to be one in Fairfield West, which got demolished and took about 15 years to be redeveloped into a Coles and small shopping centre.

              I hear is dead these days

              Only on Boxing Day when nothing else except Coles and Kmart is open; it's pretty busy otherwise.

              •  

                @kerfuffle: That one in FFwest was alongside a New World (before it became Coles New World). Isn't here an aldi on part of that site now?

                •  

                  @Jackson: I don't remember a Coles being there. There was a Bi-Lo though. And yeah, Aldi came by around 2001 or something around those lines, but Coles didn't come (back?) until the early 2010s

                  • +1 vote

                    @kerfuffle: Yeah the Bi Lo opened shortly after the forum opened as it became too comparatively down market to be a coles

                    My first job interview was at that Kmart, I can't believe I didn't get the job. A kid at my school who sat the interview with his mum got the job instead!

      •  

        I assume they will close stores where leases are lapsing first. I don’t think it has anything to do with performance.

        •  

          Pretty sure it's based on performance; I read somewhere that some stores had their leases broken so they could close it down

          •  

            @kerfuffle: Ah thanks. I was surprised at the locations chosen.

              @grasstown: With the Fairfield store, it's in a crappy shopping centre and still stuck in original 90s decor (including the store sign). It replaced Target, which moved to a different shopping centre, which has a more modern Big W

              •  

                @kerfuffle: Looks like the Fairfield store will be turning into (paraphrasing the local paper) 148 additional carpark spaces, a childcare centre, multiple kiosk stores and toilets …

                The $5 million move would make it easier for shoppers to find parking — Neeta City’s parking spaces would increase to 1234 all up — and streamline traffic flow, Elanor Investment Group claims in its development application

                Right.

                  @kerfuffle: Good luck with that…I don't I've ever seen the carpark full at Fairfield…(top floor always empty)

                  I don't think more parking matters if there's no customers/shop left..

                  • +1 vote

                    @RichardL: I've seen it quite full… Christmas eve was a nightmare (when I used to live in the area).
                    Even level 4 was full for parking… (there was usually 1-2 cars on that level)

                    It's been quite dead-ish, layout of the stupid carpark just made it worse (Court Street or whatever) and it was impossible to get in and out of without a traffic jam. I say dead-ish because there was nothing better in the area… (I mean Stocklands Prariewood had a recent renovation few years ago that made it much better than Neeta but nothing else better in the area).

                    It effectively captures most of Fairfield and the surrounding few kms so… I'm not really convinced it's going to die until someone builds a better shopping centre haha

    Chullora had nothing of note, no consoles, no great Lego, most appliances sold and tech counter is pretty empty of anything good. That said I did manage to get a large Technic set for half price so my trip wasn't 100% wasted

    Went to Fairfield at 12. Grabbed a Sony Sound bar that was supposed to be $250… Scanned at $80… lol…

    Pretty much nothing of value left.

    Some people grabbed older gen Dysons.

    I saw 2x 300d? Canons. A few of the pocket printer thingies.

    •  

      Last 300d in Chullora didn't have a battery, charger or strap, was going for 200

      Sony soundbar for 80 bucks sounds like a deal

    Went to Fairfield - no switch games and PS4 games, did have many Xbox games left as of 1-2pm

    Chullora - plenty of PS4 and Xbox games, had few copies of Pokemon sword and shield (I suspected some ozbargainers there as they were buying one Pokemon switch game and leaving for others). I already had shield so left the Pokemon games and picked up the Switcher 3 for $40 (as of 3pm). Need to go to tech counter to see the rest of the switch games.

    Both locations sold out of console, controllers (for all consoles). Toys looked barren as well

    Canon 55-250 stm for $125 at chullora (1 left)

    Whilst your in Auburn there is a clothing store outside selling white wedding dresses for $10 each. Around 100 on the racks. Other colours are $20 each.

    Didn't manage to get anything but thanks for sharing!

    Closing down sale yet they had a 1 per persom item limit. Weird.

  •  

    Picked up sword and shield an hour ago @ chullora they had a few more copies left

  • +2 votes

    OK so I went to Chullora and thought I would share what I got. Not everything is a certified bargain but it may give people some ideas. Don't expect to find this stuff in chullora necessarily but it might help you if you are already at one of them:

    3DS titles:
    $1.50: How to train your dragon 2
    $5: Metroid Prime: Federation Force
    $12.50: Paper Mario Sticker Star
    $14.50: Kirby Triple Deluxe, Animal Crossing:New Leaf

    They had Donkey Kong Country Returns and Luigis Mansion 2 but they couldn't find the cards for them unfortunately (both 14.50, and also another Kirby game for the same price that they did have)

    Xbox One:
    $2.50: Edler Scrolls OL: Tamriel Unlimited
    $5: Elder Scrolls OL: Morrowind, Raid WW2

    Skyrim would have been $12 but they couldn't find the disc for that either

    $19.50: PDP wired xbox one controller
    $44.50: Laser HDMI/BT Soundbar

    There were lots more titles but I didn't want to blow too much money. Other things I got included kids and adults sleeping bags for $9, cork yoga mats for 3.75, and Homer Simpson socks for 2.50.

  •  

    Went to Chullora 4pm, still have some ps4 xbox games!

    Went to Auburn 5pm, ps4 games almost all gone except the ones not bargain, picked up a few board games like monopoly stranger things, some books (pretty decent value!)

    •  

      Most of the good PS4 games were behind the counter at Auburn when I went in the afternoon. (Eg. Star Wars Fallen Order)

  •  

    Picked up some things today, but upon checking my receipt noe, it's not 50% off the marked price, often times, but 50% off rrp 😕.
