Freo's View


Posted in christmas, city of fremantle, retail, shopping by freoview on November 22, 2016



It is still cotton off for the mannequins at the new Fremantle COTTON ON in the High Street mall Atwell Arcade, but it is only days away until the national franchise will open their large new shop there.

The arcade is nearly finished and should also open soon, and it is good to see that the mall no longer is the derelict area with many vacant shops.

While there are no City of Fremantle Christmas lights in the streets yet over 40 retailers have participated in a BID project to light up their windows at night, so have a look for them. Support our local Freo businesses and buy your Christmas presents in town this year!

There are many cute shops along High and Market streets and elsewhere that offer a lot more than bland mass-produced products, so check them out!

    The point you make about Christmas lights is interesting. I have never understood why the city is not lit up and made a fuss of. Fremantle reminds me so much of many European towns and the atmosphere generated at this time of the year is fantastic. I would have thought it would be a real destination for tourists and locals and a boost to retailers.
    I have heard that the city of Perth of Perth gifted their older decorations to Fremantle, if this is so, could they not be used ?
    It seems such a wasted opportunity not to light up the city at this time of the year.
