Hi Peeps, just letting the Canberra Community know Gifts and Gadgets at Tuggeranong Hyperdome is closing in September 2015.This is one of my fave shops for gifts and kitchen wear. The good news is the Queanbeyan store is staying open, yippee! Rents at the Hyperdome are so expensive that many stores can no longer stay trading there. That is very sad, as many people are not able to travel very far for various reasons and they will only have a limited choice of shops to visit at the shopping centre.
10 years ago I said that the big shopping Malls will close due to the banking industry and greed. It has already started. many shops have closed their doors in the past 3 years in Canberra alone, and it will continue due to corporate greed.
