Apple Dental is in the process of refurbishing and upgrading their premises.  They have state of the art dentistry equipment – so they want to upgrade their premises to match the equipment (personally we thought their premises were swish before the upgrade).

There has also been quite a bit of building action in the premises near the BUPA dentist and Burns Bay Cottage.


Closing or Closed

Buby Bling

The kids clothing, accessories, and homewares shop, Buby Bling is continuing its closing down sale. It is located in the Lane Cove Arcade.

We did hear a rumour that it was going to be a formal hire business but have yet to have that confirmed.
