Think its time for some shiny new shops ahhh we all love those shiny things that catch our attention , or is that just me ??
So after all these amazing jumble sales , op shops and consignment shops thought we would give you the JOY run down on the new Indooroopilly Shopping center
Where do we start ???? ……..
So yep its now huge and has loads of amazing shops and we’re not going to cover them all so here are some JOY tips
David Jones has arrived ( which for those US peeps is like a Nordstrom and for those UK peeps a John Lewis ), But !! David Jones is most definitely not for the bargain hunter !!! It is beautiful and smells amazing ahhh yes lovely, but have to say I did walk around clutching my hand bag, as there were many very beautiful precious items on display, and my bag is rather larger !! and it has been known to swing into precious things on occasions oops .
It is a truly beautiful experience though and does make you feel as if you should dress up just to go in the doors
Myers has had a face lift and now features an enormous makeup department which for those who love make up is a dream , and even has a MAC counter ( I am reliably told this is the best ever !! )
Ok what next , so yes we have all the usual Witchery , Country road , dotti , forever new, Jigsaw , Sass and Bide through to Hugo Boss, and Bose enough to keep teenagers through to true designer junkies happy, and nail bars enough for each different nail 🙂
We also now have H&M which has come to stay and is fabulous, a great way to get some trendy clothes at a great price and they also do kiddies ones too.
There are comfy sofas dotted all over for those in need of a little nap 1/2 way through all that shopping 😉
There is even a running shop called Intraining that will look after your running needs amazingly well, they will discuss any issues you have, they also have podiatrists and physios in store to help you out and make sure you get the best shoe . So for those serious about their running, this is definitely worth a look.
You’ll find Coles and Woolies down on the lowest level and both of these offer parcel pick up which is fantastic, as you can do your grocery shopping and then leave it in the shop whilst you finish off all the fun shopping elsewhere. Then when you are ready to leave, you drive your car to the designated area in the car park and they will bring your groceries to you !!!! Awesome I say 🙂
The one down side to this new mall is the car parking which can get a little crazy at the weekends so just be patient there is room for everyone you just need to keep a cool head as you wait, the first 3 hours of your shopping trip are free which is wonderful.
Well in true JOY style no shopping trip is right, without mention of the coffee shop low down
So my favourite has to be Raw , as the girls will tell you I love all this weird and wonderful health food stuff and this place is delicious
For those who may not be quite so keen on a green smoothie with yummy crazy stuff in it there are plenty of fantastic coffee shops as well.
My favourite is the Foundary Artisan coffee where the coffee is yummo and the slices ….. well what can I say …., as you can see I had to try 2, all in the name of research, honestly !, and unbelievably all their food is gluten free and tastes delicious and I have tasted most if now 🙂
You’ll find it on the new glossy side of the centre in one of the beautiful bay window areas.
If you are fancy something a little more refined how about some High Tea 🙂 there is the gorgeous Passion Tree Velvet which is just gorgeous. I took my sister here for birthday tea and it was so lovely, they have cucumber sandwiches and scones and jam, as well as so much more. All in the midst of doing your shopping 🙂
So go have a wander ( as I’m sure many of you already have ) and if you work out how to stay away from all bright shiny things let me know !!!
There is so much on offer here in Indooroopilly Shopping centre now you can even buy a car if you like !!! and new restaurants have opened up on station road which we will bring you the Joy low down over over the coming months
