I'm curious about the Dartmouth IKEA. When did it open? When did it close? What building was it located in, exactly? (My parents said it was on Akerley Blvd).

Edit: I was searching for info in old editions of the 4th Estate newspaper available online at NSARM and found this interesting map from 1976. Interesting because I had always simply assumed the earliest Burnside developments would have been closer to the Circ.

I remember shopping at Ikea in Burnside in 1986; it wasn't there long before that and was probably gone by 1988. I was in Halifax then, and we had to take a bus accross the bridge, and then a bus to Shannon Park, and then walk in ti Burnside. Ikea was near the mooshead brewery (Is now brewdebakers?) location.
