Has there been any rumours as to what's being built in the old Halloween Store/Christmas Warehouse location on Kenmount?

I think the Habitat for Humanity Re-store is moving there.

Had a quick glance at the render on the sign posted and from what I can tell it looks like it will be multiple stores in there.

Anybody know where the new skywalk will connect to in the mall? You can see now that they are building escalators going down to what appears to be the back of Lawtons???

Do you mean the skywalk that will connect the mall to the new parking garage? If so, that one was installed weeks ago, in the same location as the old one that they removed.

Actually it’s in a new location, it’s going to come out where Olsen Europe was

Yeah I think people are conflating where the skywalk literally attaches to the mall vs the route you take after you leave it.

It looks like the skywalk itself is pretty much in the identical location it's just a different route then after. From what I can gather you basically take escalators down and then go through a corridor that is further up closer to Lawtons than the old way.

You can get an idea with this render:

Yes you will now enter where the Olsen store was.

Kearney’s is now located where the stairs for the pedway/skywalk had been.

The Body shop is taking in the space where Kearney’s was, going back to Avalon Dental.

In the food court they have an overhang built next to the escalators, on the opposite side from the elevator. They are either expanding the food court or digging under a&w and subway for something. There used to be washrooms in this area. I suspect they are putting something there because of the way they have dug down at the corner of the food court where Booster Juice used to be.

At first I thought there were moving the entrance to the food court...anybody have any info?

Also Little Burgundy is now open at LuLu Lemon Court.

Haven't seen any renders for the food court entrance but it's likely they are updating it to have the similar look as the other entrances will:

As for the food court no idea what they are doing there. Though it wouldn't surprise me if they tried to eek out some more space for seating.

Mastermind Toys on Hebron Way opened this past weekend. Nice to see that space getting filled. If only something would go into the remainder or the old Target Building.

Seeing on VOCM that JAG Hotel is looking to expand and has purchased several buildings in the area including the building with Gaze Seeds in it. I saw a post in a facebook group that it's going to be a good change for them.

Update: Gaze has posted an update on their website that they will indeed be moving to a new location but looking to stay either downtown or in the centre city area.

The new Avalon Mall intersection with Polina Road looks to be a couple weeks away from completion. I also noticed a second intersection wired for traffic lights. The O'Leary entrance near the food court entrance lines up with the new parking garage entrance and the bases for traffic lights have been installed in the four corners. A wise move as I'm sure this will be a busy spot.

Was at the airport last night. The former location that use to be the Relay Newstand is now gonna be a store called Jellybean Harbour.

The intersection is OPEN today. They beat my own estimate of 2 weeks. It must be the night work. :)

Costco's move to Galway delayed, according to company's website

It looks like it will be early 2019 before new store is open

CBC News · Posted: Oct 11, 2018

It looks like Costco will spend another Christmas at its current home in the east end of of St. John's.

The megaretailer will not open the doors on its new store in Galway, the new development on the outskirts of St. John's that is spearheaded by former premier Danny Williams, until February 2019, according to the Costco Wholesale website.

It has been anticipated that the new location would be ready next month.

The Wicker Emporium is going out of business and shutting down its last 6 stores including one in St. John's (on White Rose Drive). No surprise - I never saw anyone in there.

Nygard has opened a plus store at the village in addition to the store they already had there. Labels is still there although in a smaller space. Saw a permit in another spot for Hakim Optical which I believe would be their first location in the province. Could there still be life in the village lol.

Did anyone participate in Cannabis Emancipation Day? Good, bad experiences? What are the stores like? My curiosity has piqued enough yet to head out there myself. Apparently some of the independently ran stores are running into supply issues. The guy out in PC-SP ran out in less than 24 hours!

Haven't participated yet, I will once the restock/expanded stock happens. I think supplies were low to begin with, but stock at Tweed is okay. I think it's because Canopy Growth is the supplier for all of the marijuana in the province, and also owns Tweed, so priority for product is going to Tweed first, and the other stores after that.

I was down to Tweed last night on Water Street. Options were limited, but seemed there was still good supply of what they had left. Store is very nice inside. They had 5 cash registers I think. Line ups of 10 or so in each line and they moved pretty quick. Only took me 10 minutes or so from when I walked in to when I walked out. There was no line up to get in the store when I arrived, but when I left there was a line of 15-20 to get in. Obviously they are controlling the number of people in the store with someone standing at the entrance.

Overall, a great experience.:yes: :tup::ohyeah
