Great cheap shopping

Hi coming from Perth. Looking at shopping for teenager girl & boy (clothes & shoes) & plus size clothing for ladies. Staying at Crown. Thinking if we hire a car for a day or just using public transport. Thanks

Walking distance from Crown you have South Wharf DFO - just head out along the river towards the Convention Centre - cant miss it. http://www.dfo.com.au/southwharf/

Plenty of stores to suit the kids.

Main plus size store there is Warwick Jones.

Other good plus size stores are in Australia on Collins arcade. TS14 has a full store there but there are a couple more specifically plus sized shops in there too including Maggie T.

Not being sure what sort of shopping you are after - bargain, vintage, upmarket????

Here's a few ideas:

Best Mall for clothes: Chadstone (there's a free bus from the city - check their website)

Edgy/Funky/Different: Gertrude St and Smith St, Collingwood, Chapel St at the Prahran end, Flinders Lane in the city

Trendy/Upmarket: Chapel St (Sth Yarra end), Albert Park, QV in the city, GPO in the city

Vintage/Retro: Brunswich St, Fitzroy, SydneyCollingwood Rd Brunswick, Gertrude St

Cheap and cheerful: Victoria Markets, South Melbourne Markets.

Very cheap: The streets around the Footscray markets.

Bourke St mall is a mecca but there's nothing there you won't find in Perth.

Another vote for the DFO at South Wharf - its easily accessible from your hotel.
