Starting with Area D the corner of Lacewood and Dunbrack is home to huge mini malls originally Anchored by Sobeys (who moved from Area E) and IGA (which became SuperStore and then moved to BLIP). The Sobeys is still there and there is a large RBC and a Cora's free standing in the parking lot. Along the mall which is anchored on the other end by Canadian Tire there are slew of shops and services. There is a UPS Store, a tanning salon, chiropractor, physiotherapist,Maritime Travel nail salon, RBC Insurance medical clinic, Snore Store, FootSolutions for your orthopedic needs, Dental and Family Vision. Lawtons has a large store here and this is where to go for local MLA Debbie Whalen (champion of a February Holiday). Need to Eat there is always prepared food at Sobeys but you can also have a sit down meal at Brewdabakers and their yummy bread or Subway or maybe Zen Chinese is what you crave. There is also the odd Wild Bird Co / Best Friends Pet Supply a throw back to the old school neighbourhood pet store and supplies for the ornithologist in your life. The gem of this development is Gleneagle Bakery a true baker with Breads. pastries, cakes and pies already to fatten you up and make you happy doing it!
Across the street on the south side of Lacewood we have Tim Hortons and McDonalds and an Ultramar with Corner Store freestanding in the parking lot. Shoppers anchors one end of the plaza again a whack of services Dentist, Medical Clinic, Walk-in Medical Clinic, TD Canada Trust, Hair Design Centre, Fabutan, nail salon, MassageAddict, Clayton Park Veterinary, Edible Arrangements, H&R Block, Deluxe Dry Cleaners, Good Life for Women and U Weight Loss. There are places to make terrible financial decisions at EasyHome or MoneyMart. PetValu for your pet suppl needs, Everything for a Dollar or More and a Gem in the stores The Last Game Store charming little video/comic/sci-fi shop. Some food to be have first with Winstons and their famous wing nights.It's your late night local tavern. Applebees the only Atlantic Canadian location of the american neighborhood restaurant and you know for a giant chain it's not that bad (holds head in shame). King of Donair has a shop as does WokBox. Ricks Variety covers the convenience store needs and M&M Meat Shop can fill your freezer. Sushi Nami has a location here with yummy Japanese fare. There is also Fong Sing another Chinese restaurant and a Marble Slab Creamery for paddled ice cream.
Onto Area E the original Clayton Park mini mall this was originally built for with Sobeys on one end which has now been converted into a 24hr GoodLife Fitness, there is Medicine Shoppe on the other end and of course there is a dentist and a physiotherapist. Greco/Cap't Sub and a Needs for munchies. Clubmen Barber Shop and the odd ball but intriguing Cutting Grade paper crafts.
and finally Area F Rockingham Ridge 2 strip malls up here we have the simple one on the corner of Lacewood and Langbrae the halifamous Carnegy Animal Hospital with the Four Feet on Ground pet gifts. Pizzadelic has spot here and it rounded out with Tim Hortons. On the next corner Farnham Gate rd. We have the always Wilsons Gas Stop and a slew of typical services, Tailor, tanning,Physio, 2 medical clinics, aesthetics and dental. Head Shoppe, Weight Watchers, Select Roses and Pure Freedom Yoga round out the services. For Eats we have Pepper Jacks pub, Jessy's Pizza, Arirang Korean and Japanese which I hear is ok but not as good as the departing Milimado that was there before it. Canton Garden the egg rolls and fried wontons were excellent but after that I found the dishes uninspired. If you need to unwind Dooly's is here for bilards and a beer.Pharamasave anchors out this mini mall. I rember years ago that this mini mall had a fantastic place called Kelly's Deli and they made fantastic subs.
That rounds out the neighbourhood, if you like parking lots there's lots to be had between 2 parallel lines.
