Bob's

 

A lot of shops have moved sideways in the Manning building to accommodate the redevelopment that Silverleaf Investments are doing there.

When walking back from the Christmas Carnival at Victoria Quay yesterday I noticed that the Bob’s Shoe Store has relocated and now is in a lovely modern new shop with exposed brick walls, designed by the son of owner Cory Fong.

Broome resident and Aboriginal elder Fong told me that Bob’s had been at the Cappuccino Strip for over 30 years. That is about as long as I have known Cory.

REAL FREO SHOE FUN SHOPPING!

The first of the FREO NOW initiative pop-up retailers opened in the Fremantle High Street Mall on Saturday, so make sure to go and have a look at it. It’s opposite Culley’s.

SHOE FUN is full of funky, punky, cute, crazy, lovely, colourful shoes, that will delight many Freo women, and no doubt some of our queens as well.

Retail is a fickly business at the moment, so I wish the owners all the best!

On the Freo retail grapevine rumours are abound about alleged generational changes at Cicerello’s, Camera House and Gino’s, but I have no confirmation of that yet.

I have also been told that the relatively new Dangerfield shop is Market Street has reduced staff from three people to just one. Not a good sign, if the rumour is true.
