Rhodes Shopping Centre is one convenient, and pleasantly located shopping centre in suburban land. Whether you're coming by bus, train or driving; it is easy to get around.
Situated over two floors, you have the standout IKEA on the first floor with some quality retailers. Surprisingly, there are some wonderful, quirky shops for the kids. One sells cool stationery, while Adairs Kids sells some quality home ware items. You will never know what great things for the home you will find here.
Hungry souls are also catered for (sorry terrible pun) with some quality Asian cuisine, as well as a food court area that is home to some common chain store. Movie goers will like Reading Cinemas, with an access back to the corporate park for office workers not too far away.
This little shopping centre is home to cooking demonstrations, and other events. There is also a quality Justice of the Peace service for witnessing and verifying documents available too. Magic movie days also feature on the events calendar from time to time.
If you ever try to take a supermarket trolley outside of the centre, it will be locked at a certain point. Now back to the fun stuff...
It was surprising (on my recent visit to this centre) to find an abundance of clothing stores and treats for the kids. Parents will like the parents room, as well as the mums and bubs club. Some beautiful clothing store beckon on the ground floor, as well as a few others on the first floor.
Target is also popular, and it is great to know that there is an Oliver Brown chocolate cafe nearby too. It is small, yet popular and elegant - right near a fresh florist.
Quirky stationers Typo are also home here, and if you love hanging up canvas artworks in your home; from first hand experience - this is the right shopping centre to come to.
Two great floors, together with great play equipment for the kids. Kiddy Cruisers are also available to hire at the information desk. Good news, you don't need to spend too much money to come shopping here. I also love Dusk here too. More on that for another article on my recent shopping experience there.
Pleasantly surprised, yet you're in and out in a fuss free manner. Sydney, we like that when it comes to our shopping.
