GOODBYE PARTY FOR FREO MANY

Posted in fremantle, retail, shopping by freoview on February 9, 2017

MANY 6160 in the former Myer building at Freo’s Kings Square will have to move because of the Kings Square project development, so on Friday February 24 there will be a goodbye party. Below the details:

Wonderful friends of MANY. As you know, at the end of this month, we’re on the move…. so that means one thing;

A GOODBYE PARTY! BAZINGA!

Everyone is welcome to join us for this free-to-attend event at MANY (entry via King’s Square doors) from 5pm on Friday 24 Feb. Come by to enjoy live music, DJ’s, games, food trucks and a bar.

We’d love to see as many of you here as possible – so we can thank you for your amazing support over the past 3.5 years.

Kids, grannies, pets, and all your mates… everyone’s welcome to party with us. See you there.

I understand that some of the MANY businesses will temporarily move into the former Spotlight building that is also earmarked for development, while others are moving into the Henderson Street police station/courthouse complex.

NEW CALYPSO WAREHOUSE IN FREMANTLE

Posted in clothes, coffee, fremantle, retail by freoview on November 18, 2016

c-1

A funky new cafe and clothes shop has opened at Elder Place opposite the Fremantle railway station. The Calypso Warehouse looks inviting, cosy and cute, so check it out when you are down that way.

They sell women and men clothing, coffee and other things.

It is on the corner of the Wilson carpark and next to CODA architects.

Sadly further in town at the Piazza the Red Cherries coffee bar has closed but they now operate the cafe in the Fremantle Markets food yard section on weekends.

FREO’S RETAIL REVOLVING DOOR

Posted in cafe, development, economy, fremantle, hospitality, retail, shopping, western australia by freoview on August 10, 2016

 

Small retail is sadly still a bit of a revolving door in Fremantle with new small businesses opening and closing regularly. No doubt some of the failures are due to a bit of naivety and not doing market research before opening shop.

The small fashion boutique next to Common Ground and The Bank cafe in High Street has closed, but west of it in the former newsagency next to the Adam Monk Gallery and Bitches Brew framers ACAI Brothers superfood bar is setting up shop.

At Atwell Arcade they are nearing the end of the development and already HYPE is moving in goods on the corner of Cantonment and Market streets, under the new tin awning. Lights are hanging in the arcade and in the High Street mall new businesses have opened in the development.

In the former TAFE Quinlan cafe site at High Street a new small cafe has opened as part of the private hospitality training centre there. No idea why a small cafe needs five large flat screens on its walls, so not my cup of tea for a quiet coffee and reading the morning papers.

We still got a long way to go in Freo to claim economic recovery, but with the real prospect of development at Kings Square and many more buildings sites popping up around the CBD Fremantle is well on its way to the future.

VERY FREO BLINCO STREET FLEA MARKET

Posted in fremantle, hospitality, markets by freoview on April 24, 2016

 

What a lovely atmosphere today at the Blinco Street Cafe FLEA MARKET in the very arty and hippy Fremantle Fibonacci Centre, and how nice to see so many people turn up to grab a bargain, listen to live music, catch up with friends and have an excellent coffee and meal at the cute little cafe.

I hope they will make this into a regular once a month event during the colder months.

If you haven’t been to the Blinco Street Cafe go and try it out. Tomorrow morning they will open at 4.30 am to cater for the people who attend the ANZAC DAY dawn service, so go and grab a cuppa on your way to Monument Hill! The cafe is only a three-minute walk away from it.
