Where to meet, eat and shop now winter is here
As the days get shorter, the wetsuits longer, and your shopping list peppered with winter’s favourite treats, here’s a where-to reminder that the perfect winter escape (and every major supermarket) is just down the road at The Pines Elanora.
Where to warm up your wheels
The coolest months of the year are a good time to get your tyres checked for traction. Remember to be more vigilant about checking tyre pressures during this time of the year too. Drop your car off at Kmart Tyre & Auto for a winter health check while you shop.
Where to take better care of yourself
Up your personal health game this winter with everything medical, dental, and health related conveniently located in the one place. Have you had a flu shot yet?

Where to cake, coffee and chocolate
Hot chocolate, velvety cappuccino and biscotti, private tables down the back and plush banquettes overlooking the passing parade. These are the ingredients of a winter catch-up at The Pines. (Don’t miss the new ‘Meeting, Seating and Eating’ place near Brumby’s & Taboon.)

Where to plan your next getaway
Lots of us on the coast think this is the best time of the year, but if you beg to differ why not plan an escape to somewhere more to your liking? Winter is the most wonderful time of the year to dream of faraway places. Summer in New York? Europe in the fall? Come in and toss a few ideas around.
Where to blow away the winter blues
For those days when you’re a bit “meh” and not sure what to do with yourself, spend some time with us. One of the first things you notice about The Pines is the free and plentiful parking. You can browse accessories and homewares or marvel at the multitude of merchandise in our discount variety store. Have something to eat and drink and look around. There’s nothing like a bit of retail therapy to while away a wintry day.
