Coffee Matters looks to be closed and there's a poutine restaurant opening on Water Street.

Coffee Matters is still open, I know someone who was there last night actually. The Poutine shop is called Smokey's Poutinerie, and it's a part of an Atlantic Canadian chain I believe. Do you know the address of their store? I think it's going to be on Duckworth street?

A specialty burger shop is also opening downtown this summer. Also a chain, Relish will be located in the abandoned building currently sitting on the corner of Water, Waldegrave, Harbour drive, and George Street W. (the building right next to the Ultramar gas station).

I walked Water Street last night and I can tell you that it's definitely on Water. I actually remember commenting on it and saying I didn't think it was possible for a specialty restaurant to survive on poutines. I know for certain i was on the east end of water towards Job's Cove/Baird's Cove. I'm trying to use Google Streetview to remember which building it was, but I'm drawing a blank on it.

It will be on the south side of Water Street around where the Asian Variety store used to be by that little alley that leads down to the parking lot off Harbour Dr.

There was paper over all the windows of Coffee Matters the other day when I went by, I figured they closed.

Smokey's Poutine is going on Water Street near the Fortis Building.

Smoke's Poutinerie is an Ontario-based poutine chain. They've just recently expanded to Atlantic Canada, I believe one opened in Halifax back in the fall. Here is a link to their website:

http://smokespoutinerie.com/

The burger place opening up on Waldegrave is called Relish Burger. I'm a huge fan of burgers so I can't wait for this place to open! Check out their website:

That's weird. Is that the location up by the Sheraton?

I noticed that the space behind Starbucks on Kenmount Rd. will be a Menchie's Frozen Yogurt store, a sign was posted in the window.

89,000 square feet of Walmart. That's a lot of space for an "express".

I would say once Target is firmly established in Canada and Newfoundland, you will see other Target Stores opening. Most likely in either the Kelsey Drive area or in the new Southlands Big Box area which is suppose to start construction this year. Time will tell.

I noticed that Wingin' It is opening a second St. John's restaurant on Kenmount Road. It's in the newish strip mall building that's been vacant for many years just west of Kelsey Drive. Looks like it's going to be a pretty big location, so I have no excuse not to try and go there now

I've updated the main page with a list of up and coming retail openings around town, along with a link to a google map. The list isn't extensive at all, so if anyone can think of anything I haven't thought of please post (there's a lot I know, so lets brainstorm an extensive list). I can also add businesses that are already open around town. It'd be impossible to list every store in town, so I'll just try and add any notable stores.

Bed, Bath and Beyond will soon be opening in the Village Mall.

I heard on the radio this weekend that the new Wingin' It location will be at 93 Kenmount Rd. Apparently it's where the old Taiwan restaurant used to be. I guess they'll have a lot more space than the downtown location, also less hassle with parking! I Google mapped it below:

Yes, it definitely is a step up in size. The old Taiwan restaurant building was demolished in favor for a strip mall styled development with about 4 or 5 stores. But as of right now Wingin' It is the only business opening in that complex.

I'm surprised it has been vacant so long as it sits on the doorstep of Kenmount Terrace/Bristolwood/Westgate.

Hmmm... with Wingin' It's huge popularity maybe it will serve as a somewhat anchor tenant and thus help bring more businesses to that complex. I think it's a great spot to open a restaurant; there is a large residential (e.g. Kenmount Terrace/Bristolwood) and business (e.g. Kenmount/Kelsey) population it can serve. The potential to do well is definitely there.
