    Huh, I walked past the other day and they had signs of a sale, but I thought it said "25th Anniversary Sale" or something like that, not "going out of business." I guess it's both. Also, I had no idea Minty owned the store.

    Yeah, in their old location (currently The Situation), you would often see him up in the little booth/office that overlooked the store. He typically just sat up there, only occasionally going down, even if people were obviously loitering. Which is odd, because at Warp One, you couldn't look at a comic for more than three seconds before hearing "We ask here that you can read the first page, but then buy the book and read the rest at home" with that trademark smirk .

    Well... that's a bit scary for anyone living nearby. If the chemicals have gone across the road they're likely at the properties right beside the cleaner.

    The front of Re:Grub was totally defaced with graffiti when I drove past yesterday. They are closed for renovations.

    They’ve been closed for renovations for awhile... but are they actually renovating? I hope they just remain closed.

    I don’t think anything has been done inside Re:Grub. I don’t think it’s just closed for a renovation, more likely closed for good.

    ReGRUB had lines around the block when it first opened, but I think the notion of $12 for a sundae was always gonna be short-lived. I recall it being pretty dead every time I walked by there after a point- I only went in there once, as it's typically out of my way (ie. I wouldn't be around when I was in the mood for dessert).

    And then with that Choco17 or whatever it's called opening up literally right around the corner... they probably saw the writing on the wall, with that place's franchise and bigger location, and went "WELP that's it".

    Though they announced at first they were gonna be back, that might have just been a lie or wishful thinking.

    They served overpriced burgers and milkshakes there. There’s not really any crossover between there and Cacao 70, which is a chocolate/brunch place.

    It's still dessert. And, I mean, Cacao70 serves chocolate EVERYTHING, including some fancy milkshakes. There's absolutely some crossover.

    I looked it up, and it’s a place called “Ripe Tomato.” They bill themselves as “the best Neapolitan pizza in Alberta.” Pretty ballsy opening up less than a block away from Famoso.

    Yeah, that’s not Neopolitan pizza, though (which is what Famoso has). Blaze pizza is pretty much like a pizza version of Subway; quite similar to Love Pizza downtown. With that said... that’s a lot of pizza places in a small area (plus Royal Pizza 2 blocks south).

    Pizza is good for soaking up beer in bellies and dollars from wallets.

    The leasing signs for the space east of Malt + Mortar are gone, replaced by security warnings.
    O'Byrne's is closed for renovations.
    Huge lineup outside of Yelo'd!

    Spotlight Cabaret has replaced O2's. Apparently the owner is the 2X4 Guy.

    Yeah, been closed for awhile; I think it was closed before Valentine’s Day. Not shocking, as that’s not a busy pedestrian spot, and the branding of the store looked really weak. With this, and Sanctuary gone, as well as at least one vacancy on the second floor, that building is pretty empty now.

    Ah, I thought they were just advertising in the old chocolate place, but I checked their site and sure enough they’re moving there in the summer.

    Chapters has been closed for two days at least. Flood? Fire?

    I walked by on Thursday and they were posting the notice saying something about “unforeseen circumstances” forcing them to close for the day. Not good hearing that it was more than a day.

    I see heating vents pointed towards the door-probably a flood. My apartment got hit from windy runoff, too.

    Bottega has closed for a renovation according to a half dozens colour 8x11 printouts in the entrance way door and window. Any news?

    It’s open, and has been for at least a few days. We were in there on Sat, and I completely forgot to ask about the closure.

    Not something I’ll use, but her business sounds fantastic.
