5 THINGS TO DO IN PRESTON, AFTER YOU'VE VISITED OUR STORE! 21 September, 2012

5 THINGS TO DO IN PRESTON, AFTER YOU'VE VISITED OUR STORE!

 

1   PRESTON MARKET

Forget Queen Vic, the ultimate market experience is to be found in the heart of Preston. 

Preston Market is nestled between Gower St & Murray Rd, conveniently located next to the Preston Station. 

Don’t expect to hear ‘sorry’ or ‘thanks’ too often, as you are jostled around in the swirling crowd, especially nearing closing time when all the bargains are to be had. 

You see, this is the Preston way- everyone is on a mission to get the best produce, at the best prices, in the quickest time!

You’ll leave feeling alive & invigorated, with a hefty load of fresh goodies to see you through the week.

2   GOLD LEAF RESTAURANT

Walk thru the mini arcade & up the stairwell to find the ultimate local Chinese restaurant. 

It's loud, colourful and opulent- a huge space adorned with golden dragon statues, bulging with smiling patrons of all ages, enjoying great food at great prices.  Be sure to sample the Yum Cha, a definite favourite. 

After dinner, wonder down High St and explore more local gems, you’ll feel like you’ve travelled abroad!

4  THE RACCOON CLUB

Conveniently located right next door to us is The Raccoon Club. 

A great local bar, serving the best local brews -  Kooinda (West Heidelberg), Thunder Rd (Brunswick), Hawthorn Ale (Hawthorn), 3 Ravens (Thornbury).  And if you fancy a local wine, they’re currently stocking some great Victorian drops from King & Yarra Valley, Red Hill & Avoca regions.

Free pool, dial in dining and a great atmosphere.
