Now, I would hazard a guess that I’m not the only one who gets into a larger centre and starts to stumble from one shop to the next until frustration dictates that I find an information stand and ask for what I’m looking for. Sometimes I even ask for directions back to my car using a photo I have taken of my parking spot. Great tip Danimezza.  Now, the My Stocklands app can’t help you find your car {I don’t think, but that might be an idea, don’t you think…?} but it does have a centre map.

Shops here I come.

I pictured walking into the centre, iPhone in hand, app loaded and swanning to the coffee club without a care in the world. That was my destination after all. The reality was pretty similar actually. Now I don’t have a local, local Stocklands centre so I did my test run in the Caloundra Stocklands. I hadn’t been there for years so I had no idea what was there and where it was located. The app performed beautifully. In fact it was ALL kinds of brilliant.

PLUS there’s a discount calculator… Well. It may be simple but gee whiz it does the trick. My sis and I are often left standing in the shops trying to figure out discounts by figuring out how close to 10% it is. Bet we aren’t the only ones either. Right? We don’t even have to remember how to use the calculator to work out percentages. Multiplied or divided by 100% or what is that thing…?

So, my total fail at maths aside. This app suits me just fine. I like to know where shops are if I’m in a hurry. So if you’re interested it can be downloaded for free from the app store here. A full list of feature is there too. Treasure hunts, shopping lists and lots of cool stuff like that.

Oh, the boots photo is from a while ago and totally unrelated to this post. Other than the fact I purchased them shopping. And could have probably bought another pair if I hadn’t already spent MY gift card on lunch and a whole bunch of junk for my Hubby. But don’t worry. I didn’t have ALL the fun. YOU can win a $100 card too!

    I would use the shopping list feature to keep track of all the basics I need to stock up in my wardrobe. I would then use the calculator to hit the discounts for some extra special non-basics and make my $100 gift card stretch as far as I could.

Then with the money Mr MMM has kindly handed over…off I go with the app to work out those discounts and make that little shopping spree stretch as farrrrr as possible 😉

  • I went to Westfield Hornsby once in Sydney, and they had these colour coded tickets you could take to remember where your car was parked. The sign said “I never lose my car” and I thought, I don’t need that, I NEVER lose my car! So I didn’t take one. Guess what? Yep…

      Haha. Love this. Stuff like that always happens to me. Damn cocky internal voice. 😉 

  • I would use the Stocklands app to calculate my discounts, because as well as losing my car (that one time!!!) I am NOT a mathemagician.

    My idea of heaven would be a Stockland App that sorts the shops by products stocked… I could quickly locate everything stocking kitchenware goodies!

    Our stocklands is just about finished building Townsvilles first Myers… Hello beauty section… If in doubt shoes… ALWAYS shoes… THATS what I would spend it on. Plus everyone knows what I am like, I have lived in Townsville for over 10 years and I still get lost, add the excitement of retail and I am pretty sure they built this app for some one like me.
