I was walking through Westfield Hornsby over a four hour period today (friday) and noticed a Manly merchandise store on the top level beside JB Hi Fi. I walked past it about five times and saw no customers in there; only two bored guys working there in Manly shirts... so bored they were passing the footy in this 40square metre store. I know the rent would have been cheaper than usual, because it was formerly a vodafone store, and now waiting a full paying tenant to put up signage etc. But, with no one in there, and a store only selling Manly stuff in a fairly neutral territory (more of a Rugger crowd), I'm not sure if this little experiment is that beneficial. Any of you guys/gals seen a Manly store outside of the district, and how it has traded?
