    I finally went to Rafters again- I feel like I barely discovered it a year ago and went in twice and then they announced their closure. Though I really only buy candy, since I don't collect those...

    I noticed the Pottery Barn closing signs last time I was there. How is that "two levels"? Do they mean there's a dip in the floor at some point? Because that place always looked like one floor to me....

    Yeah it’s a bit odd. Their sign comes off a bit sad, with “I know I said I was looking to sell, but nobody stepped forward” kind of phrasing. I’ve never seen another Rafters before, but I guess this...

    Yeah, I had heard the Starbucks by Save-On was closing, which surprised me- it constantly seemed busy (at least in the mornings), and has a fairly good location.

    Moreover, ANOTHER Starbucks in the...

    That's super-weird to me. That place was only open for what? Four months? Sweet Jezus had a longer run, I think!

    The one in Strathcona seems to always be busy from what I've seen, but I guess a...

    I was around this area today and had a look around. Unfortunately, once again being a late sleeper kills me, because I got there at 5:10 and so 90% of it was closed :).

    That might be the old Kingsway location- they told me they were opening up a standalone store as they were leaving the mall. Kind of funny how they'd move to an even easier place for me to get :).

    Wow I missed all the Walmart talk, haha. I had no idea. I don't mind it, since it's at least something else to do there. I used to walk to the Superstore to check out their toy section, but it's a...

    That is a great article about WEM and its changes. It really comes off like they're dumping the "low-tier" retailers and focusing almost ENTIRELY on trend-hopping and "Luxury" retailers, expecting...

    That makes a lot of sense- the Save-On Foods has the same problem (it's why they got rid of that triangle shelving space at the front- it let people hide from staff). I think all of Whyte, but...

    Sad to see Lillo’s and Avenue close- Whyte used to have very distinctive boutiques, but landlords and the economy are seeing to that.
