The Halifax Bead and Metal Clay (AKA Feroz Beads) on Grafton is closing on February 14th.

Found this old floor plan of City Centre At;antic when it opened , no one is the same. Lillian’s is still there but now hidden up on the 2nd floor. I had forgot how big the HMV was.


The Pub at the Lake Loon driving range is closing this month but the golf activities will resume when the weather allows it.

Bedford Place Mall has lost International Clothiers and Fairweather as tenants.

Ray’s Falafel and the Indian Buffet have both been told their leases will not be renewed in Scotia Square’s Food Court. Thai Express and Subway are both expected to be there in the near future.

RUMOUR: McDonalds has acquired the former KFC on Cole Harbour Rd.

Martime Summit Shop: The North Face store emptied out and closed their Barrington St storefront late this week.

More froyo, yes more froyo.  yeh! will be opening outlets in Downsview Plaza and inside the Dartmouth Crossing Walmart.

and finally this was submitted to me by @AmandaWalker80, Target has some really fancy sidewalk chalk.

  1. I worked at MT&T in the late 90s there. The HMV went in in late 97 or early 98. I was at ITI in 94/95 so this had to be from later than 98 or it was a planning layout for HMV going in. Anyway wanted to clarify this was not from when it opened. Brings back some memories from then.

    As for SS – we loose two great foodies outlets to be supplanted by chains. The coast has a piece on this I think. There is now a McDonalds there too. Guess they think they can bring in more with chains, but the real gem here was it was a special place. Something that really defined Halifax in an Anthony Bourdain type of way.

    Thanks. I will follow this blog as I just found it. I was looking for info on Sleepys which was a stereo store on Barrington in the late 80s.
