Cmon Crissy, don't leave us hanging!! Which shops in particular are your fav's?
The girly ones. Bardot,Sabba any shoe shop that has a baragain hahaha
hehehehe...well I'm a boy so I guess I'm outta luck!!
I wouldn't say that i am sure there are shops in Burnley street that would be of interest to you.C'mon guys like shopping too :-)
We do like shopping...for ipods, Plasma TV's...beer etc :)
I do most of my 'clothing' shopping out at Doncaster Shoppingtown, but there are few decent shops in the Richmond area. Bridge Road and Chapel are the best in the area.
Parking always seems to be the problem with shops on Burnley and Bridge Road. Any tips?
Public Transport. Or sometimes the side streets are pretty good for parking :-)
Burnley Street? Really? I know there's a bike shop, furniture shop, some takeaway shops, a pub, a restaurant, a pet supplies store, a church...
Shopping mecca? Think I'm missing something.
Sorry i meant Bridge Road.Just realised now. I will update & yeah Bridge road is a great place to shop
I'm with Jonh - seriously missing something.
I'm more of a Brunswick Street girl with a dash of Smith Street seconds shops for trainers.
Ah Brunswick Street and an unlimited credit card - I could do some serious damage. T2, Lush, multiple shoe shops, Rich, Shag, Rose Street Artist Markets ..... I could go on and on.
I should also mention that you can stop for a wee lunch time bevie at Little Creatures.
I must say i do like shopping in Brunswick street also. I used to work on Smith street so yeah it was a routine of mine on my lunch breaks to look around :-)
Yeah, I was wondering where these shops are/where, on -Burnley St.- butwhen you said Bridge Road, I knew what you mention asap.
I've seen bridge road grow and change over the last 15 years. It's been interesting :) but if anything, it's getting better and better each year.
Both the cafes and shopping are great. Traffic and parking is the cliched elephant in the room.
This thread should almost be changed to shopping in Richmond!!
Being a new home owner, I've also found that there is great shopping for furniture and interior deco stuff along Church Street. Plush, Nick Scalli and more are all there in one spot. Fantastic for someone furnishing a new home.
I want to change the title of the topic how do i update it, can anyone help?
You can't actually change the title of the topic just yet, but i'll get in touch with you on the private messages, and I can get it changed for you.
Yeah i tried to change but could not find any options to get it changed
Great thread ! Especially this time of year , shopping, shopping and more shopping. I'm on my way to Richmond ! Thanks Cutie Pie : )
You can't go wrong shopping in Bridge Road. There are all sorts of shops.I should follow my own advice and start doing my xmas shopping cause i haven't even started :-)
Thank God for late night shopping , they should start earlier !
Yeah tell me about it. Wish shops were always opened late like in Europe. that would make it much easier. Specially shopping centres.
What does everyone think about Victoria Gardens? Has it been good for Richmond locals?
@JVS working in the area, I'm a bit over the food court to be honest. I WANT VARIETY!!! What they have is great, but there is not a single place in the entire foodcourt to get a good lasagne, or a nice slice of pizza. In terms of shopping? It has the essentials, but not much more. Coles, the butchers, the bottle shops etc are all great to have, and Richmond was in great need of something like this before, but I would like a JB or perhaps a Borders.
I think Vic Gardens is ok for your basic shopping but it doesn't have much of a variety of shops. For the locals i guess it is good Nice and close for them
Vic Gardens is ok for essentials but a bit limited. Definitely needs to have more variety.
Yeah i do agree. Also the food court needs more variety. I am so sick of the food there.
@CutiePie what food would you change in the good court though? I personally have been going a lot to the cafe's up near Keith's Pies for lunch. It's a welcome change to otherwise drab food at Vic Gardens.
Mmmm Keith's Pies! The lamb and rosemary is my favourite.
I would put in a bit more of a variety. There is two sushi places so they could take one away and replace with something else. The kabab place is yuk i would replace with a lambs souvlaki yummmmmmmmm.
where is keith's Pies?
119 Burnley St, Richmond, VIC, 3121
The Vic Gardens food court urgently needs a Pasta Bar. Tortellini, Ravioli, Lasagne - maybe even pizza.
It would be very very popular.
Yeah that would be great JVS. I do feel like pizza sometimes even pasta. At least it would bring a bit more of variety to the food court
Pasta would be good, if it was nice, but judging by the rest of the food there...
Even the shops there isn't much of a variety there.I would liek to see more clthing shops for men/women.
What about a Nando's. That would be great
Just had a conversation with a Richmond local who said the shops in the area (and Vic Gardens in particular) were "downmarket" in comparison to what is going on across Melbourne. She prefers to travel to Glenferrie Road or Chapel St for nearby clothes shop.
I have to agree with that. If you want to buy clothes Victoria Gardens is just not the place to do that. It is very limited.Lucky for locals they have Bridge Road. There are really good clothing shops and the prices are also ok :-)
