Is the Marshall's opening in Galway a move or a second location? Also, does anybody happen to know what will be moving into the old Winners location,in the mall?

As far as I know Marshalls, Michaels and PetSmart are all second locations. There's been nothing on what is opening in the old Winners location.

Would bet that some/all of the new stores announced the other day (H&M, BR, ON, GAP) will be going into that space - previous plans posted on this site showed it being sub-divided.

I received an email from TJX with a contest to celebrate the opening of their 500th store in Canada - the Galway location of Marshalls/HomeSense.

That would be #11 for the St. John's area.

That has to be a saturation point for the city and surrounding area.

That is 11 with one more slated for the old Dooly's/Post Office downtown. I keep thinking they've reached saturation but they keep opening more. I can see one going in Churchill Square to serve the MUN crowd. Maybe the Goulds as well?

Each location seems to be only staffed with 2 or 3 people so payroll is not a big expense for them opening more stores lol

What I don’t understand is why there are two dollaramas so close together on Topsail Road! There’s one behind the new Tims where dominion used to be, and then 3 minutes down the road there’s another one in the Village 😂

Several Dollaramas are within close proximity to other locations. For example ...Avalon/Kelsey/Ropewalk as well as Torbay/White Rose/Elizabeth.

As for Topsail Road and the Village, there were once 2 Dominion supermarkets at both those sites, so I guess a Dollarama is not that unusual.

Hearing rumplings of Five Guys for Galway
One of the store fronts looks like a five guys. A lot of talk on twitter.

There was an announcement last year about them opening a location in Halifax and Saint John's. Further information pointed towards the actual city being Saint John, NB, however there was no confirmation. So in theory it's possible.

I would guess though if they were confirmed long enough in Galway that they could make a store front look like their restaurant, then the Galway website would be advertising them as a tenant.

EDIT: Just saw the Twitter post. Very interesting....

I can only speak for the larger locations, but they spend as little on staffing as they possibly can. One of the biggest volume stores, Kelsey Drive, has to split 400-500 hours a week between a Manager, 8 "full time" staff/team leads, and 6 part timers.

That being said, there's usually 5 to 8 people there at any given time. They don't wear uniforms so they're hard to spot sometimes!

Right next to the roundabout is a Scotiabank. I don't know if this will replace Centennial Sq. or be in addition to that location.

There is another building that backs onto Danny Drive and faces Marshall's etc., it appears there are 2-3 small units in the building. I'm curious what is going here.

I know up across from Costco the building is (from what I've read) to house Starbucks and Expedia Cruise Centre.

My husband had someone write him during the rumors and say it was definitely 5 Guys. Then it turned out that guy was full of crap when Urban Shoes claimed the spot people were speculating on lol.
