Shopping trading hours for Anzac Day 2010

PLEASE NOTE: This post refers to information in 2010…If you have come here looking for 2011 information, please read this.

Due to some differences between states, I thought I’d summarise what the biggies (i.e. Big W, Target, Coles, etc) will be doing over the long weekend to make your iTunes bargain hunting more effective! Especially if you’re heading out to Target to get 25% off!

The below is taken from the Shopping Centre Council of Australia’s website.
