That was short lived.

Yeah, apparently they hadn't paid the landlord for three months. It's happened with other locations.

Sad as I was considering buying some things there for Christmas. I guess I will have to look elsewhere.

I noticed over the weekend that Bell and Best Buy are teaming up in a rebrand of The Source stores to Best Buy Express. It indicates there are about 300 stores and they will be reducing it down to around 169. I wonder what that will mean for the locations locally. We used to have 3-4 The Source location in St. John's and now just the 1. Will it remain open.

I wonder what the future holds for the 9 others across the province.

Can't wait to get the hard sell on a new cell phone plan every time I go in. Or internet. Or cable. Or Crave.

Some more Village news: Charm has opened their new location downstairs next to Showcase. There's also something going into the former BMO next to 1949 Barbershop, but no signage has been posted on the construction wall

Have we not reached a saturation point for "Dollar" stores? Same goes for pet stores and micro breweries.:shrug:

Not near enough micro breweries!

Can confirm. Saw the signage in the Mall today. Can't quute remember whrre, perhaps near tge Source? This was first announced when the released plans fir the mall reno.

Yeah I remember seeing the malls renovation floor plans a few years ago with Lindt store being in there. I think the original location for it was around where the Bubble Tea place is now across from Old Navy. Look forward to seeing their selection when they open.

Saw a job ad for a manager for Aritzia in St. John's. Not sure if we're getting that store or if its supposed to be Saint John.

Avalon Mall on its facebook page has announced that Forever21 will be opening soon in the mall. I recently seen Forever21 banners hanging inside of the Urban Planet store. Not sure if Urban Planet is being rebranded as Forever21 or if it’s going to be a separate store.

Searched Forever 21 and their website redirects to Urban Planet.

The company behind Urban Planet bought the Forever 21 name in Canada. It will basically be an Urban Planet store with the same Forever 21.. selling the same Urban Planet crap.

Best Buy Express
 
Anyone know if The Source in the Avalon amall will shut down like the one in the village mall? Most of them are closing randomly and rebranding as "Best Buy Express". It would be great to see one of them in a mall so I'm not on the bus for almost 2 hours going to Stavanger. Thanks in advance
