  • A Gala Party Hire
    Party Supplies    Hornsby, NSW

    This is a no frills party hire provider and the service is effective and friendly. The range is standard (for example, they have around 5 chair options rather than the 20+ some companies offer!) but they deliver what they advertise. Highly recommended for about 95% of parties which have typical requirements. If you are looking to hire specialist crystal red wine glasses, ghost chairs or similar this probably isn't the place for you.

  • Tigerlily
    Clothing Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    This shops sells very relaxed bohemian style clothing. Think loose long tops with beautiful detailing, floaty dresses and swim wear. As mentioned by previous reviewer they burn beautiful scented candles which make for an enjoyable shopping experience. Expect to pay a little extra but in return you get unique designs.

  • Fare Game
    Takeaways    St Ives, NSW

    I was desperately looking for rabbit for a stew (don't ask why). Anyway, after much searching at woolworths and the other butchers has faulted, I was directed to this store.

    If you need any cut that is a little odd or any game, then this appears to be your place!

    Whilst this is one of the largest stores in the Westfield complex it is only moderately sized for a Rebel. Staff receive some incentive for every item purchased that they manage to tag with their identifying sticker. This makes for eager service, but don't expect expert advice. When it's busy it's hard to find someone to help, but they try to cater to self-service as much as possible. For example shoes of various sizes are stacked for customers to try and buy. Good for sales, good for browsing and an excellent returns policy. Just don't visit with very specialist requirements.

      cant recall) couldnt properly speak to the pros and cons of alternatives. I thought the assistant was helpful, I just didnt think the very specialised product knowledge was there.

      Overall I am very happy with the Rebel value proposition. I enjoy going to one stores and being able to buy most of my sporting requirments. This is reflected in my high star rating.

      Hi Gareth,
      Thank you for your feedback. I have since revisited the Chatswood store as well as the Hornsby and Macquarie stores. I initially thought these two were larger than the Chatswood stores and have been doubting my size-evaluation following your comment. You are correct, the Chatswood store is large, I do however believe is 'feels' smaller because it is long and thin with 'isles' coming off the side. The Macquarie and Hornsby stores are squarer and I think they feel larger. Obviously I haven't compared them square-foot-to-square-foot.
      Regarding expert knowledge, I wouldn't expect Rebel staff would have in depth knowledge about such a diverse product range. I was not criticizing, I was trying to describe the nature of the stores and distinguish it from specialized outlets such as Athletes Foot (specialization in foot wear) or Lulu Lemon (specializing in womens gym wear). My specific reference experience was when buying running shoes, I felt that the assistant (whose name I...

    I tried this cafe for coffee after reading about from a very reputable website regarding good coffee. I try good coffee where ever I go, but to date, this was the very best. These guys know what they're doing. Their aim is clearly to make excellent coffee, and they do it very very well. I'd absolutely recommend this cafe.
