That rumor has been around for awhile now I think. Would love for Giant Tiger to set up shop here.

The old Furniture Market will be home of a merged NAPA store. Both the Commonwealth Avenue and Freshwater Road locations will close and this new merged location will open that will basically be located midway between the 2 current locations.

Just noticed an approval of renovations in the city’s agenda to 24 stavanger Drive which is the former Target store. They reference it as shopping centre. Anyone know of any more details on this? I already heard about the Giant Tiger rumours but that’s all they are at this point.

Now that is interesting. Nice to see something happening there.

The NL Chocolate Factory's new location is now opened in the Avalon Mall across from the new Winners.

Also. TipTop is going to be moving too into the new expansion area also across from from Winners.

Also gotta peek into and former Winners space. It's completely gutted to the studs or steel beams in this case.

Shoppers Drug Mart has opened in the new Paradise Plaza development.

Sounds like the Avalon Mall is starting their renovations to Toys R Us plaza finally, noticed a permit for it in the council agenda for this week.

Also noticed new construction starting in Galway for a retail store at 95 Danny Drive, and a new restaurant going in the same plaza as Wingin It on Kenmount Road?

Well it seems that Aéropostale which closed its store in Avalon Mall and left the Canadian market a few years ago due to bankruptcy is re-entering Canada with a store within a store concept by teaming up with Bluenotes. I saw an Aeropostale banner the other day in the Bluenotes front window display at the mall. Aeropostale also plan to open its own standalone stores in Canada again too so perhaps we’ll see them again at the mall.
Here is link to the article.

Here is a link with photos showing the Tip Top concept store. They are moving from their current location in the mall to a new spot near to the new Winners.

I posted in another thread about activity around the old RONA store on Hebron Way. There are cars parked there most days day, building materials in the building, etc. I'm hearing rumors that its Atlantic Home Furnishing either moving or opening a second location.

Was just speaking with one of the supervisors for the new Mountain Warehouse store in the Avalon. They will be opening on Dec. 13th.

Anyone hearing that Bouclair (spelling?) is closing?

Arrakis Dec 15, 2019 1:53 PM

Bouclair has filed for bankruptcy as a means to be acquired by another investment company. Haven’t heard that they are closing though but did hear some underperforming stores could close.

Stores in Fredericton and Halifax are closing.

Stores in Moncton and St. John's are remaining open (at least for the present).

The new Shoppers on Empire and Freshwater is now opened.

Oh I wondered why the one in Grande Prarie (alberta) was closing

Apparently Carlton Cards in the Avalon Mall is closing. Did we know this? Is it moving to a new location in the mall?

Arrakis Dec 30, 2019 1:52 PM

The Village Mall Store has closed some time ago too. Perhaps is just a sign of the times. Like everything else, people tend to send electronic greeting cards a lot more now.
