So the last time I visited Rhythms it was the items for sale were so-so and the ladies behind the counter were polite but not super friendly. Today's visit was a game-changer. If I was to make an Op-Shop my local, Rhythms would be winning. The store has had a massive makeover, with industrial crates screwed to the walls, old leather handbags used as shelving and vintage timepieces scattered through the store. Head stylist and employee, Heather's styling has you wondering whether she has a background in visual merchandising. And yes, she does! There are particular racks that have exculsive Aussie labels at only $25 each while every other item throughout the store is charged at a flat rate: dresses $8, skirts $6 and jackets (on clearance) $5. Amazing quality items and great service, with locals coming in to get help with things from making appointments with the doctor to filling out job application forms. An initiative of Castle Hill Church of Christ, you can really feel that the staff here at Rhythms are genuine, interested people who are not your regular, boring Christians. The work that they do really shows both the love that they have for their jobs, the people whom they serve and the overall cause. Love this place!
Went here using a Groupon Voucher and it's true when they say you get what you pay for. One World Sport is a pub on busy Church St in Parramatta, so we assumed the food would be competitive. Glass of wine, beer, two mains and dessert were on offer and wow, what a massive let down. The food was brought to us by a staff, who I think may have been the cook. Partner's steak sandwich was alright, with the steak being pretty good to eat. My souvlakis (two) were miniscule but the chips were alright. We assumed we'd be given the packet chocolate cake for dessert so we skipped outta there before it arrived. It's worth noting the place is under renovations also so everything just seems a bit icky, particularly the crowd!
I don't know what iandsh's issue is (they haven't really mentioned anything but the price), but I often get myself half a dozen Pacific Oysters or fresh Tuna or Salmon Steaks from Costi's and they are great. While the prices are on the more expensive side, the service is prompt, fish is fresh and they know what they're talking about if you have any questions.
