Or they buy them at the 100 other places that sell greeting cards. You can get cards at wal-mart or dollarama for much less than at other stores.

Cards feeling like a rip off probably also doesn't help...

Pier One is closing half its stores in North America and is reportedly close to declaring bankruptcy.

Not surprised to hear this at all. They’ve been going downhill for some time now. Seems like all the home decor chains are hurting or closing up shop. Bouclair Home recently filed for bankruptcy too and was purchased by a new owner. Home Outfitters which is owned by Hudson’s Bay closed all of its stores, Bombay Co., Bowring closed all of its stores too not too long ago. Online shopping?

Not surprised either. I would say online shopping combined with places like IKEA and Winners/Marshalls/Homesense. I find Pier One pricey when I can get similar items for cheaper elsewhere.

Downtown bookstore. They used to be over by Model Citizens and moved into the Afterwards space on Duckworth after they closed.

Another mall chain has bitten the dust it seems.
I noticed that Things Engraved had a “store closed” notice posted in their door yesterday at the mall. Now it seems they have shuttered all stores across Canada without hardly any notice to employees.

While out for a walk today, noticed that the spot Yellowbelly had on Prescott Street now has a sign for Volcanic Bakery hung.

Good. That yellowbelly sign was up for about 10 years and I don't think it ever materialized.

Not sure if it’s been announced yet or not, but the brick is going in woodgate plaza, late fall opening.

Arrakis Feb 17, 2020 2:24 AM

Where did you here this?

I think NL is only province without a Brick store. Leon’s owns The Brick so they are kinda already here I suppose.
