What would it take to get a Mountain Equipment Co-op here?

OMG that would be amazing, you'd think with all the outdoor activities here in NL we'd have a few around by now. All we have is the over priced Alpine Counrty Lodge and The Outfitters DT.

Hmm. It would probably require someone to purchase the franchising rights, probably the construction of a building, hiring staff, ordering stock, ect... ;) :D

I'd say +100-150k in the metro region.

I would love to see a MEC here.

On another note, looks like we are getting another gourmet burger place:

Looking at this page, they are trying to expand to other provinces as well, but their focus is definately heavily based in Ontario. I was talking to a friend tonight about this place and apparently Relish has nothing on The Works. Can anyone else either confirm or deny this claim?

I've been to a Works burger in Ottawa (the one in Westboro) - a very good spot, I enjoyed it very much! I also like Relish as well, I believe there's much selection than at Relish. As for the price, it was a couple of years ago now so I can't remember exactly.

I went to Stavanger Drive today because my better half needed to visit a few stores. It took some pictures of some of the MANY buildings under construction there.

This is one along White Rose (Golf Town on the left) :

Another along White Rose (Bulk Barn or Dollarama) :

The intersection of White Rose and Torbay (Harvey's Restaurant) :

Basically on the Walmart parking lot (TD Bank) :

On Major's Path, behind the Canadian Red Cross (Canadian Blood Services) :

So, does anyone have any ideas what I photographed? lol

Arrakis Dec 27, 2012 8:55 PM

Let's see. I think the green covered building in the first photo is going to be Golf Town or something like that. Gap or Banana Republic is also supposed to go in that block once the rest is built.

The second building at the other end is going to be Dollarama and Bulk Barn I heard.

The third photo of the wooden structure on the airport side in the Field Power Centre land is going to be a new Harvey's Restaurant.

The building on the Walmart parking lot next to Swiss Chalet is a new TD Bank.

The last one is an extension to the Canadian Blood Services building?

Jeez, fantastic, thank you! That's where Harvey's is going to be? Excellent. I used to work at a Harvey's, lol... I can't remember if it was Corner Brook or Moncton, though.

This website gives more detail and some visuals.

awesome!

you can see how much is going on in the area and it is only including that small corner behind Dominion

here are the "Renderings/photos" for the development

so I guess this is what they will look like :)

Yeah it will be nice to see Harvey's back in St. John's again. I was saddened when they closed their Mount Pearl restaurant years ago on Topsail Rd at the top of Commonwealth. (Currently Vogue Optical)

I love the fascade on that Banana Republic store. Very Newfoundland-meets-New England.

It'll be right next to the Golf Town building above.

Arrakis Dec 27, 2012 10:19 PM

Hey guys, has anyone heard if Target is going to build onto the Zellers building once Zellers moves out? It's quite small for a Target store. There is a good chunk of land though on the side between Zellers and the Kent store to expand on if needed which would propbably be smart. I would say Target once established in St. John's will end up building a new bigger store in the west end also. Most likely in the new power centre in Southlands area once that gets going. Lets hope.
