A lap around Telstra’s Sydney Discovery Store

Telstra Sydney George Street - Corner King and George Street Telstra Sydney George Street
Back in October 2014, Telstra opened their $112mil refurbished store in George Street –  becoming their ‘new’ flagship store and was dubbed the ‘Discovery’ store. Not just called ‘Discovery’ because it was something brand new for customers to explore and discover, but also a testing bed for Telstra to work out what works well, what could be improved, and what can be transferred into new stores as they become refurbished and get a refresh.

Do the Loop!

Just in case you’re feeling a little nostalgic about Sydney’s late monorail.

Back in 2001, as the monorail passed Chinatown station; ‘Do The Loop’ would play over the public address system, which thankfully finished after 30 or so seconds.
Unfortunately silence didn’t last, as on each subsequent circuit it came back to life again, so after a third lap we decided it was time to bail. ‘Do the Loop’ was last played back in 2007, and it sounds like that was a thankful change.

Lyrics:

Put your left foot in, right one on the floor, let’s have some fun!
Dad, watch the door!
Put your arm right up, put your nose against the window.
What’s over there?
Do the loop doop doop.
Do the loop doop doop.
Do the loop and do the round.
Do the loop doop doop.
Do the loop doop doop.
Do the loop and fly through town.
Sydney’s Metro Monorail – it’s a loopy way to see the city.
So get on board, and…
Do the loop doop doop.
Do the loop doop doop.
Do the loop and fly through town.
