To help with the startup, there is a Kickstarter with some awesome donation perks. I’m tempted to go for the create your own sandwich. Maybe I should crowd fund to crowd fund?

Meanwhile, up the other end of Downtown Portland St where it meets Prince Albert, Cardboard went up on the windows and all it’s says is “Coming Soon” “Much Fun” “Good Times.” When I figure it out, I’ll let you know

This is kind of interesting. Costco announced 7 new Canadian stores (none in Maritimes), but they are opening their first “Business Centre” store in Scarbrough it will be about 2/3 the size of a current store and service small business with “a wider selection of business-oriented merchandise and services” and doing away with consumer sections like toys, in-store bakery, and clothing.

Tim Hortons outside of Brantford ON. I know big deal a Tim’s, but this one is on a First Nations reserve, and therefore it’s 8% cheaper.

Danier has re-launched in a few Ontario Malls, they have a new owner, new business model. Why keep the Danier name?
