Planet fitness
 
Planet Fitness is opening in St. John's. They will set up at 650 Topsail Road next to Dollarama in the old Dominion/Home Hardware building. They have not given a timeline. My guess would be spring of 2023.

Does metro really need another pet store chain with several pet supply stores here already?

The new tenant to be next to Dollarama on Ropewalk Lane is another pet store. Back in the 80's and 90's we had 2 Pet City stores roughly the size of a convenience store, now we about about 20 large pet stores in Metro.

Was listening to an interview with Pat Thompson who owns Diamond Design in Terrace In The Square. He was concerned about the parking issues in the area of Churchill Square in the CBC radio interview. He mentioned that the new apartment building under construction that replaces the old Dominion supermarket will also house Shoppers Drug Mart on its Main Street level floor which would mean it would be moving from the Terrace in The Square building. That leaves a pretty large retail space for someone else to move into. Dollarama anyone? Just my prediction.

Ropewalk Plaza in receivership??
How does something like this happen when pretty much the entire plaza has been leased with such big brands as Dollarama, KFC, Burger King, Plaza Bowl and many others? Would love to know the real story here.

I don't think any of these stores are part of this property.

The Telegram had a story on this with Vic Lawlor, who owns the plaza. According to him he renegotiated leases with some of the smaller businesses to help them get through Covid. The businesses owe him a million dollars in rent and this has become an issue with the bank.
