To the point about Starbucks I heard the same about the stavanger locations as well they hope to have more than 10 locations in the cma in the next few years

The old Zellers reno is moving along pretty quickly. The entire side is gone getting ready to build onto the west side of the building facing Kents. Looking forward to seeing the finished building. Apologies for the crappy photo. Weather wasn't too nice that day.

Wow! That's moving along quickly! :tup:

I was at the mall today and popped into Jump+. It's a pretty decent store, it's pretty much a smaller scale Apple Store. There's nothing there that you wouldn't be able to get at, say, Futureshop or Best Buy, but it's nice to have another option for competition purposes (i.e. sales). One big plus is that Jump+ does in-store servicing on Apple products - the only location on the island as far as I know. No need to send your iPhone or iPad away anymore. :D

Wow - that's awesome. That's going to draw a lot of business. Purchasing AppleCare in NL until now was almost a waste of money.

MUN has a service area for Apple now. I'm not sure if it is just for students and I don't know what they fix.

I tried having my Macbook pro serviced while I was home once and they wouldn't help me because I wasn't a MUN student. Unfortunately.

PoscStudent Mar 24, 2013 6:22 PM

Odd, I wouldn't think they'd have enough business to turn away people like that.

Hmm... maybe it's university policy?

Nice to hear about Starbucks expansion in St. John's. I remember back when there was only 1 store which no one ever went to, and now it seems like everyone loves it. It'd probably be nice to have a stand alone store downtown, as well as one in the west end of St. John's, and one in Mount Pearl to compliment the newer stores on the east end. Also, a location in the airport is a given, hopefully one will pop up once the terminal expansion is done.

As far as I know MUN computer services will only repair your mac if it's under warranty with Apple. They are not obligated to fix it if the warranty has expired.

The Apple service centre at Mun is no longer a registered service provider by Apple. Probably due to Jump Plus.

Arrakis Apr 6, 2013 3:31 PM

Good to know. Thanks for the update my friend.

also there's a lot of ads for an outdoor sporting store called Atmosphere .. it could already be there but it's not something I'd notice. Anyways it's in the Village mall

on another note did anyone notice the new bedroom store in the Avalon mall? it's called "Quilts etc." .. looks nice

PoscStudent Apr 10, 2013 1:16 AM

Atmosphere is part of Sport Chek.

There is a sign up in what was Athletes World in the mall saying they are closed for renovations and opening up under a different name that I can't remember. Our shopping experience is going to improve though, well according to the sign.

Intersport I believe it's called, which sounds much less inspired than Athlete's World. Corner Brook is supposedly changing over as well, I really have to take a trip in there soon and see what's up with Target etc...

I just checked out their website, it looks as if they're aligned more towards sport apparel and equipment; very similar to SportChek and I would assume a competitor. I'm interested to see how it turns out.

Here's the website: http://www.intersport.ca/en/

Intersport is part of the Sportchek family, as was Atheletes World. All of those companies fall under the FGL Ltd family (Forzani Group) with Sportchek and Atmosphere being their flagship stores. Kind of a Futureshop/Bestbuy sorta thing.
