YOU SAID...

“Prob­a­bly need a pass­word to get in.” An­drew Young

“Put it in Dock­lands or South­bank but not Fed­er­a­tion Square!” Bren­dan Dom­browsky

“That’s like slap­ping a bill­board on the Syd­ney Opera House. What a dis­grace.” Brodie Mitchell

“Why a shop of any kind is open­ing in a com­mu­nity space is in­com­pre­hen­si­ble. Es­pe­cially when protests and wel­comes to coun­try are oc­cur­ring against an Ap­ple back­ground.” Cathy Hunt

“Not a fan of Ap­ple presents imel­bourne. Leave Mel­bourne to grow or­gan­i­cally, as dic­tated by peo­ple’s needs, not a cor­po­ra­tion’s.” Shan­non Lough­nane

“Knock­ing down a pub­lic build­ing to put in a shop is cul­tural van­dal­ism.” John Nicholas

“Yay! Can’t wait!” Reece Joel Gock
