Hmmm... I may have to pop down there, but I'll probably be too cheap.

White Rose Drive is shaping up.
Bulk Barn is open and Dollarama is close to being finished.

Golf Town and Le Boudoir are open. And the space in between Wicker Emporium will be opening soon. Construction has started on the foundation work for the remaining store to be attached to Le Boudoir.

Empire Theatres is selling it's chain to Cineplex in Atlantic Canada. Wonder how this will affect the new cinemas being proposed for Torbay Road?

I was going to post the news here first but decided to put it in the East End thread. I guess we can expect duplication of info.. or in this case triplication. :cheers:

I was speaking to the owner and they still don't have ALL of their stock in and are waiting on more shipments

Well Victoria's Secret parent company L Brands Inc. owns La Senza and Bath and Body Works. So, it would just be the same kind of situation as Best Buy and Future Shop both being on Stavager Drive a stone's throw from each other and both owned by Best Buy.

Some people prefer one store over the other... even though both carry mostly the same or similar products.

Target has gotten its signage in place now on Stavanger.

Oh no. The tacky Bench clothes with the word 'Bench' plastered all over them are already at epidemic proportions around town.

A new Walmart supercentre opened up last week in Halifax. I found a story on Walmart's expansion into Atlantic Canada and apparently they're planning to upgrade 9 Walmart stores to supercentres in Atlantic Canada. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be one coming to St. John's which I don't understand... there's definitely a demand here. I'm by no means a die hard Walmart fan but those supercentres have full grocery sections and their prices are very competitive. I guess it's like everything else - we'll get one a couple of years after everyone else has one!!!!!

Here's the list:

Quote:


Fredericton - 125 Two Nations Crossing
Dartmouth - 90 Lamont Terrace
Fredericton - 1399 Regent Street
Bedford/Sackville - 141 Damascus
Dieppe - 477 Paul Street
Halifax - 220 Chain Lake
Saint-John - 450 Westmorland
Halifax - 6990 Mumford Road
Moncton - 25 Plaza Boulevard

Seems like a lot of more retail space being built on White Rose Drive behind Dominion.
