Posted in city of fremantle, fishing boat harbour, food, Uncategorized by freoview on July 13, 2017

 

 

The extension of the CHAR CHAR BULL restaurant in the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour is nearing completion.

The new piazza there has already been finished but is still fenced off because of the CCB construction work. It should not be long now!

SOUTH FREMANTLE ALDI OPENS

Posted in aldi, city of fremantle, food, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on July 12, 2017

 

A 4

 

German supermarket giant ALDI opened today at the South Fremantle Marketplace on the corner of Douro and Hampton Road.

Parking bays were hard to find but it was quiet inside the supermarket when I went for a look at midday.

I bumped into a very excited English lady who gushed about cheap German beer for only $ 8.00 a six pack.

I was delighted to get a Dutch rookworst for only $ 2.99 when they are $ 9.00 at Woolies and bought fresh Australian salmon for about $ 4.00 less than I normally pay elsewhere.

I did not have too much of a look around but noticed a giant 58″ high definition TV for only $ 499.00.

Nice touch to have special close-by parking for those special parents with babies.

SUCCESS AND CLOSURE FOR FREO TRADERS

Posted in city of fremantle, food, Uncategorized by freoview on July 5, 2017

 

RAW Energy in Cantonment Street has already closed after opening I think it was in December last year.

It is always disappointing to see a business close, but one has to wonder why it is a business closes within six months. Did they do proper market research and did they not understand that it takes well over a year to establish a new small business, and that one needs financial back-up to get through the rough first year and a bit?

On a more positive note, Richard’s Gourmet Sandwiches in the High Street Mall has also closed but it is due to the success of the business.

The business is developing into a Perth-wide commercial supply of their delicious sandwiches and will be stocking Parlapa in William Street opposite the Fremantle Townhall.

STUDIO 37 CAFE SATURDAY BREAKFAST

Posted in cafe, food, fremantle, Uncategorized by freoview on June 16, 2017

My mate Tom at the lovely STUDIO 37 Cafe in the PS ART SPACE in Pakenham Street is now open for Saturday breakfast from 8 am till midday, so go and enjoy great coffee and food in the cavernous heritage space that often has fantastic art exhibitions.

Several offices, including Centrelink have closed in Pakenham Street so there is plenty of parking in the area.

The cafe is just twenty metres from High Street.
