Meet Darren, Store Manager of Big W Hyperdome

From men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, to baby products, home appliances, toys, beauty and health needs. Name a household essential and Big W most likely has you covered. 

With a vast range of big-name brands and quality basics, Big W prides itself on being ‘big on family’ – and its Hyperdome store is no exception. 

For store manager Darren, Big W’s focus on family is a value that’s close to his heart too. He once shopped at the Centre with his parents - now it’s a favourite place to take his own family.  

“Hyperdome is a great place to shop and work, and I love the North Mall’s fresh new look,” says Darren.

“Being conveniently located opposite Woolworth’s smart store has brought a new wave of customers and locals to this end of the centre. It’s an exciting place to be.”

And while celebrations might look a little different these days, Big W still has the product range to suit every special occasion.

Darren says Big W’s ‘one-stop party shop’ is stocked with a colourful array of balloons, decorations, costumes and party accessories to ensure your next gathering feels festive, regardless of size.

Meet Angela, owner and Manager of Haha Sushi

A mainstay of Hyperdome’s foodie scene, Haha Sushi has been serving up its popular Japanese fare to shoppers since 2013. 

Led by a small team of five, Haha Sushi’s recipe for success is simple - good customer service, fresh produce and quality recipes.

And, according to store manager Angela, it’s their famous chicken sushi (prepped in a special sauce before being wrapped into rolls) that keeps hungry diners returning.

“We pride ourselves on delivering fresh, delicious and healthy food to our customers – a bit like ‘home-made food’ from Mum,” says Angela.

“In Japan, ‘Ha Ha’ has two meanings – translated to both ‘mother’ and ‘happiness’ – so our name plays into our focus on family and food. Our aim is to make our customers happy, every visit.”

Hungry yet? You’ll find Haha Sushi’s bold and bright new kiosk located near Big W in Hyperdome’s revamped North Mall.

Meet Karen, Store Manager of Nextra

Hyperdome shoppers - Nextra’s made your trip to the newsagency that much easier with the opening of its second store, nestled in the centre’s new-look North Mall. 

Store manager Karen says Nextra’s sister outlet in the fresh and inviting North Mall wing is a welcome addition for regular customers. 

“We’ve built a loyal following over the years and our new North Mall store has built on that loyalty,” says Karen.

“Our customers love the convenience of knowing there’s a Nextra nearby, wherever they’re shopping in the centre.

“For me, meeting new customers and seeing our old local customers visit both stores for a chat is my favourite part of the job.”

Known for its stationery and Lotto products, Karen believes it’s Nextra’s range of gorgeous giftware which sets them apart – making it a one-stop shop for your next present purchase (with an impressive range of greeting cards and wrap to boot).

Meet Leah, Store Manager of Priceline Pharmacy North Mall

Priceline Pharmacy’s become a household name in Australia for stocking big name health brands and cult beauty buys – a formula that’s made their North Mall store a must-stop destination for Hyperdome shoppers.

From Bioceuticals to Loreal, their affordable and quality range of cosmetics, skincare and vitamins has gained a legion of loyal local fans. 

Priceline Retail Manager Leah Hammel says her team of 15 is dedicated to delivering quality customer service and product advice to meet shoppers’ needs. 

“We’ve developed a strong family culture at our store and have gained a lot of regular, loyal customers as a result. We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming vibe for our shoppers and that extends to the centre too. 

“Plus, the new-look North Mall has attracted a new stream of customers to this part of the centre, who we’re excited to get to know.”

And if you’re shopping at the southern end of Hyperdome, Priceline Pharmacy is still only a short stroll away.

A second store - conveniently located in the South Mall - has undergone a renovation. The revamp is set to be completed later this month.
