COLES STAYING AT FREO WOOLSTORES!

I received information from Silverleaf Investments director Gerard O’Brien who assured me that the Coles supermarket will stay at the Fremantle Woolstores.

It will only close for 14 months during part of the development, so that is good news.

Now could we have a pop-up supermarket somewhere in the CBD during that period? Is the space Woolworths occupied in the Adelaide Plaza still available, Sirona Capital?

COLES LEAVING FREMANTLE CBD?

Posted in city of fremantle, city planning, development, shopping, Uncategorized by freoview on December 5, 2019

The Fremantle grapevine is abuzz with the rumour that Coles will be leaving the Woolstores shopping centre and that staff have been told the supermarket chain won’t be part of the new hotel, retail, child care and police station development by Silverleaf Investments, that still needs planning approval by JDAP.

It would be a pretty big shock for Fremantle if there were no longer a supermarket in the CBD, but I am quietly confident that with all the development happening and in the pipeline in Freo another chain like IGA or Woolworths will find the Woolstores option an attractive opportunity.

UPDATE at 1.50pm:

The rumours are only partly correct as Coles will only close doors during the development, but return when the new building is finished, which will still leave the CBD without a supermarket for at least two years.

GREAT NEW SYNAGOGUE VENUE FOR FREMANTLE

Posted in bar, cafe, city of fremantle, food, hospitality, tavern, Uncategorized by freoview on December 2, 2019

 

 

The official opening of the Fremantle Old Synagogue tavern, bar, restaurant and cafe is this coming weekend, but they did a soft opening yesterday, and I noticed when I walked by that they are also open today.

Here some more photos I took yesterday. What a great new venue, and so nice to see that important corner of Freo being activated.

Surprisingly there are still a few tickets left for this Thursday’s FREO LONG TABLE, so make sure to snap them up by midnight tonight!

The Freo Long Table is one of the best events in town with a long table stretching from Market Street all the way to Mouat Street in beautiful High Street of our heritage West End.

There will be roaming entertainment, John Butler and Mama Kin will be performing, and it is always a really fun evening

Proceeds go to St Patrick’s so it is a very worthwhile fundraiser. Don’t let Freo down. I needs to be a sell out!

STUNNING FREMANTLE SYNAGOGUE TAVERN

I got a sneak preview of the Old Synagogue tavern development today, and I already know this is going to be my local and favourite watering hole in Fremantle.

It is a fantastic development that has got so many gorgeous features. I specifically like all the greenery; trees, planter boxes, lawn.

The Old Synagogue is next to Fremantle Oval and opposite the Norfolk Hotel. It has three levels and will have two rooftop bars, one of them looking straight down the Cappuccino Strip.

There will be a cosy whiskey bar, a great restaurant, many, many craft beers, a changing wine list featuring WA wines and the favourite wines of the moment.

And the good news is that it will open at the end of this month, so in time for all the office Christmas parties and functions. Book now!

A new Fish&Chips outlet has opened at Fremantle’s Bathers Beach. TWIN FIN has taken over the site where Sweetlips used to be, so make sure to give it a try and support a new small business in town.
