Woolworths is doing some refurbs and expanding the length of their aisles. Trying to get your loyalty before Aldi and a spanking new Coles pops up in the redeveloped Rosenthal Avenue Car Park. Woolies take note – your trolleys are being abandoned around Lane Cove. Many of your trolleys will no long accept coins but will accept the plastic tokens. This means there is no incentive to return the trolleys.


We told you last month that La Piazza is being refurbished. ITC thinks this is an understatement. The restaurant has been gutted and it looks like they are starting from scratch.
