And yes, that building is awful. I remember when it used to be... wasn't Liquid right there? I forget what was in it.

Liquid is still there, its the round window part, Erin's pub is just on the bottom floor

Either way, it's still a hideous looking building and needs a major overhaul to make it fit in with the Water Street facade.

Zellers/Target
 
I was at Zellers on Stavanger over the weekend. They have now started their closing sales and have everything in the store posted at 10-30 percent off. So, my guess is they are planning to empty the store over Christmas and will likely be closing early in the new year to make way for Target.

Arrakis Nov 19, 2012 2:22 PM

Didn't someone on here say Zellers was closing in March?

Actually, i just checked the Target website and it states that they won't be opening until Winter 2013. Seems a bit early for Zellers to being their "Everything must go" sale.

Winter 2013 is just a couple months away.

I interpreted that meaning later in 2013 and that if it was opening in March, it would say Spring 2013....but perhaps I am wrong.
Either way, if you are looking for sales, time to get to Zellers before the shelves are ravaged!

Arrakis Nov 19, 2012 3:52 PM

Also heard the rumor that Target will be building onto the old Zellers building on Stavanger too as it is pretty small for a Target store.

Ayreonaut Nov 19, 2012 4:59 PM

Winter 2013 could be Jan or Feb though. They should really use quarters to avoid confusion.

Mexicali Rosa’s closes its doors again
 
Actually, I thought I'd post on this thread as well seeing it's retail related.

The Telegram, Nov 22, 2012

Quote:

About a dozen Mexicali Rosa’s employees are out of work after the restaurant closed its doors Wednesday.
Franchise owner Matthew You-den of Moncton, N.B., — who reopened the George Street restaurant late last year, after taking over the shuttered location from previous management — said the location never got the business it needed in the downtown to stay open.
“We’re not quite sure (why),” said Youden. “We reopened the store and cleaned it up, and it just didn’t take with the market, and that’s pretty much the gist of it.”
Between 12 and 15 people work at the location. Youden said staff were notified Wednesday by the general manager. Asked if employees would be given severance or help to find new employment, Youden said they’re still working that out.
“It’s still very early, to be honest with you. And we want to make sure, we obviously would love to see all of our staff in new jobs and taken care of,” said Youden. “We very much want to do our best to help them out, but obviously for me to comment on that, I’m not able to.”
Youden said it’s a “difficult day” for the restaurant.
“It’s a tough thing to have to do, but unfortunately sometimes there’s just no other choice,” he said.

Don't think it will sit empty for too long, prime spot for a lot of businesses.

It is a prime spot... just not for a restaurant. It's too out of the way on George St. and it's adjacent to two strips clubs. Probably not the best place for a family-style restaurant. May be another bar/eatery would do fine there? I guess we'll see....

statbass Nov 29, 2012 5:38 PM

Not sure if this is the right thread to post on, might as well just to give it a little bump.

Does anyone know what's going on in the Kelsey/Goldstone area next to the Kent Contractor's store? An entire area has been cleared off there. I suspect more Class B office space, but it could be some retail.

I think Dollarama is going to part of this construction in the Harvey Power Centre behind Dominion on Stavanger. The building is much larger though than your typical Dollarama so I would say there will be more than one store in here when finished.

I think this new store is going to be Golf Town or something like that. Right behind Dominion on White Rose Drive in the Harvey Power Centre.

Here is what I think is Harvey's Restaurant on Hebron Drive and Torbay Road in the new Field Power Centre near where the new Empire Cinemas are going. If anyone can confirm this, please do.

According to the lease plan a Bulk Barn will be a part of this building as well.

Arrakis Dec 3, 2012 2:43 PM

Yes. I think you are correct. I know there is a pdf of the partial list of new stores somewhere on this blog but I was too lazy to search for it.

Anyone know what the plans are for the old Brass Rack pool hall on Duckworth Street? I stumbled across this drawing of a proposed design for it but it didn't say what the type of business it was going to be. I assume by the look of it that it will be a bar or restaurant of some sort. They have applied to install garage door windows (much like what's on The Grapevine) so most likely this will be a bar of some sort. Good idea I suppose with the Marriott expansion going up across the street.
