  • On the NW corner of 101 St and 107 Ave (kitty-corner from the original Brick Warehouse, now The Brick) there was a record store.
    It was Marquee Music and then A&A or Kellys, or vice versa.

    • Yep, I remember it being Marquee. Thanks.

      • It was right on the corner of 107th and 101st street. They had a huge selection of media I recall. They phased out I think in the 1990's. I'm not 100% certain on this but I think it latter became a daycare. I bought my first cd there.

        • Okay, so then where was the ALCB outlet that had the big wine cellar in it? I thought it had moved into the Marquee space, but it sounds like I might have been wrong.

          • There was the A&B sound at 102 ave and 107st, Norquest is in that building now, and there was an ALCB there at one time.

            • ^^ The name might have changed but the Marquee building still holds a daycare.

              As for the ALCB, they stopped retailing as far as I know, about the time of the Tornado.

              • ALCB sold off the stores '93-94, a good while after the tornado.

                • ^ Thanks for clearing that up. Early '90's. The good old days.

                      Thanks, that's probably the one I was thinking of.

                      • I remember spending entire afternoons at the downtown A&B Sound. I browsed through various CDs in the alternative and classic rock selections and ended up buying some of them. This was back in the good old days before the internet and YouTube. It's been many years since I last bought any music. Next time I make that purchase, it will likely be classical or jazz.

                        • I remember Club Trend, a nightclub for minors that didn't serve alcohol, and barred over-18s from entering. I think it was located in the old Studio 82 porn theatre on Whyte, just west of Mill Creek Bridge.

                          I also seem to recall that that same building hosted a similar kids-only club under the name "Studio 82", but can't recall if that was before or after Club Trend.

                          The media, as I recall, ran reports describing these clubs as safe places for kids to hang out, though I do recall some dispute about this among the general public.

                          • Shakey’s Pizza was mentioned earlier. I just remember it being a big open restaurant (long tables nothing fancy at all) with all you can eat pizza.

                            Anyway, were there any other locations than the one in west Edmonton?

                            • I remember little corner stores in several locations. All long gone. Can’t think of any of the little privately owned ones surviving. (Just all branded same-old-same-old chain stores now like IDA, Red Rooster etc)
