In Bondi Beach NSW on “Consolidation of three...” at 12 Hall Street Bondi Beach NSW 2026:

Erica commented

As so many others have pointed out, we don't need another big chain store in Bondi. We already have a Woolworths, IGA and Harris Farm within short walking distance. The village feel that locals love and that draws so many visitors to Bondi will be further eroded by converting more premises on Hall Street into a big chain store. It will also create more traffic on a busy street without enough parking to serve need already, and where pedestrian safety and enjoyment should be more of a priority. Let's keep the village feel alive by nurturing smaller businesses that enrich the culture of our suburb, rather than big chain businesses that homogenise it.
