Let Junction Fair help you prep for back to school and work

Can you believe it’s that time already? The time where you need to start prepping the whole household to get back to your usual school, work, and all-round life routine. It can be a great time to freshen up your work wardrobe, clean out the kid’s school bags, start planning out everyone's snacks, and even working on some meal prep for the new year.

Whether it is that new statement piece you want for your work wardrobe, a new backpack or water bottle for the kids, filling up the pantry with healthy food, or even getting your technology up to speed for another busy year at work, the incredible retailers at Junction Fair Shopping Centre have got your back.

Getting the bits and pieces

Got a crack in your phone that you’ve been putting off for far too long? Maybe you need a little something to keep that new tech Christmas present protected. Whatever your technology issues may be, the crew at Hunter Phone & Computer Doctors can sort you out. They can even assist with computer issues, like Windows installation, virus removal, hardware, PC upgrades and so much more.
