Myer Hobart fire and re-building

The Hobart city centre certainly changed without Myer dominating Liverpool Street. The old building was impressive and had a grand staircase from the ground floor. The hole in the ground left after the fire was there for way too long.

Finally after 8 years, the new Myer building opened in November. The second Myer building in Murray Street (which housed a smaller store for 8 years) is now under renovation. So eventually we will be back to having a large Myer across the two connected buildings.

This video shows a little of the story, along with some images of the fire and aftermath.
