South Australians used to take a short flight to reach shopping mecca. Until Rundle Mall Plaza delivered it right to Adelaide’s doorstep!
The site of the original David Jones was always going to be a hard act to follow, but Rundle Mall Plaza rose to the challenge to bring something for everybody. It’s the home of H&M — the only one in South Australia. It’s also home to the only Glue Store and French Beauty Academy in the state, too.

FASHION AND ACCESSORIES
If you’ve been living under a rock and have never heard of H&M, you’ll find this brand in all the trendiest cities around the globe. What sets it apart is its commitment to sustainable fashion for everyone in the family. You’ll find unbeatable value for all your wardrobe staples, accessories and activewear.
And when you want to stay ontrend, head to the only Glue Store in South Australia for clothing, shoes and accessories from all your favourite fashion and streetwear brands, including Beyond Her, Nude Lucy, Adidas, PE Nation, Lulu & Rose, Wrangler and Polo Ralph Lauren.
If off-the-rack isn’t your thing, you can get a more personalised fit through meticulously handcrafted pieces from the world-class tailors at LaMilago Bespoke Tailors, located on the ground floor.

THE FRENCH BEAUTY ACADEMY
Adelaideans really are the lucky ones! The French Beauty Academy is Australia’s largest and most prestigious registered beauty training academy, and it chose Rundle Mall Plaza as its first location outside of Queensland. If you’ve ever thought about a career in beauty services, the Academy offers comprehensive training in make-up, styling, massage, dermal therapy, laser treatments and medi-spa therapies. And graduates have a remarkable 90 percent success rate when securing employment even before graduation.

The French Beauty Academy also offers pampering without the price tag! Adelaide’s best-kept beauty secret has a diverse range of treatments and services at a fraction of the price, while students are guided by their educators.
TECH, ENTERTAINMENT AND GAMING
The lower ground level is a must-see when you’re shopping for fun gifts. You can’t miss JB Hi-Fi, which is Australia’s largest home entertainment retailer, with all the biggest brands and a huge range to choose from. If you need games to go with your brand-new console, head out of the store and straight into EB Games, Australia’s number one video game specialty retailer; or Zing Pop Culture, which is filled with things from when you were growing up, like Pokemon, DC Comics and Star Wars.
And if you’re a big kid at heart, or a proud collector wanting to watch your investments grow, Shin Tokyo offers all the latest Anime and Manga collectables, plus one of the world’s hottest commodities — trading cards!
If you need an excuse to shop for everything that appeals to your inner child, drop your phone into expert mobile phone repair and accessories retailer, Any Mobile, for those screen and battery repairs you’ve been putting off. Located in the heart of the tech hub, it specialises in spot-on solutions for iPhones, Samsung, Google Pixel… and all other mobile phones.
While exploring the lower ground floor, stop by Rundle Mall Plaza News, which is the Mall’s longest-standing newsagency. Here, you’ll also find the CBD’s most extensive collection of greeting cards!

For the more sophisticated “collectors”, Rundle Mall Plaza has plenty of sparkle at Swarovski and Gerard McCabe — both located on the ground floor. If you want to shine bright like a diamond, Swarovski is the brand for you. For something more intimate, Gerard McCabe is a fourth-generation, family-run business that specialises in coloured gemstone jewellery and antique period jewellery, which make for the perfect engagement rings and bridal pieces.
STOP. EAT. GO!
Not going to lie, shopping makes you hungry… and Rundle Mall Plaza has plenty of choices. Your caffeine fix is only a few steps away, at Caffe Da Marco on the ground floor, which also offers lunch and snack options to satisfy shoppers on a mission.
Then you’ve got your grab-and-gos, like The Logical Indian, Soonta, Kyoto Sushi and Little Ban Ban for when you need to get back to the office or keep moving. Or there’s Clio Cafe on The Terrace overlooking Rundle Mall, where you can sit and enjoy a bit of downtime. The spacious Terrace makes for a relaxing dining experience that comes with stunning views up and down Adelaide’s bustling shopping precinct.
