    Fantastic company. Highly recommended. Really friendly, helpful and highly skilled. I find that these guys go the extra mile (for example, sourcing missing content without being asked). Prices are reasonable and turn around is great.

    Shopping Centres    Chatswood, NSW

    Chatswood Chase is a beautifully presented classic shopping complex. It is quite old school, none of he trendy eclectic decor that is so popular at present. Because of this is probably targets an older demographic. The fresh food section is a highlight with some lovely gourmet shops.

    LOVE Lorna Jane! My number one go to exercise clothing shop. The Macquarie outlet is bright and colourful and the service is friendly and helpful. Keep your eyes peeled for sales!

    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.
