Suburban Shopping with Ease of Access.

At one time or another, I’ve visited almost every major shopping centre in Sydney. Over thirty years as a resident, I’ve watched my favourite, comfortable shopping haunts grow from easy-to-access ‘shops’ to small cities, gentrified with every convenience known to man.

I now avoid large shopping centres like the plague and yearn for that little suburban retail space, where I can park with ease and access the most essential services, grocery outlets and department/variety stores. Might this be a thing of the past?

On the bustling Northern Beaches, with an exploding population and constant demands on infrastructure, Warriewood Square provides the closest to a traditional shopping centre I have found, within a comfortable travelling distance.

Locals might remember Warriewood Square pre-upgrade and long for the days you could be in and out within a few minutes. Well, there’s no stopping progress and the centre needed a facelift, a wider variety of shops and greater capacity parking. The northern peninsula, which stretches all the way from Manly to Palm Beach, was also in dire need of a viable alternative to Warringah Mall, which has become a nightmare of traffic and construction during its upgrade.

‘The Mall’ is looking beautiful inside now and it has almost everything you need but it doesn’t have a Roads and Maritime Service and it is becoming less accessible by the day, with Brookvale's traffic congestion and lingering construction around the main carparks.

But I guess if you are considering making the switch from a bonafide ‘shopping mecca’, you might need some more convincing.

For me, the new Warriewood Square is a one-stop shop almost always, acknowledging that there are some speciality stores and banking services I need to access occasionally at The Mall.
