Well now that IKEA has opened, I asked what people would like to see next and overwhelming it seems people want an Olive Garden

The Bayers Lake Bed Bath & Beyond with Buy Buy Baby have opened in the former Future Shop beside Superstore. The Buy Buy Baby is only the fifth location in Canada

Seasonal PopUps
Pumpkin Village is opening in Dartmouth Crossing by Shamus Davids and on Spring Garden in the old Mills Building at the end of October
•In the meantime, Home Comforts has opened their seasonal popups in Halifax Shopping Centre and Mic Mac Mall
Go! Toys and Games has also opened in Halifax Shopping Centre
Christmas Discounters is now open at Woodlawn Mall

The VR/Escape place I mentioned a few weeks ago opening by McDs on Portland St. is having a Hallowe’en pop-up at Mic Mac with the Virtual Reality: Hospital of Horrors

Halifax Shopping Centre is adding the first North American location of UK based women’s clothier Oasis

Halifax Shopping Centre is also adding an authentic Levi’s store.  N previous years they had a 1850 store that was operated under license by Pantorama.

Her Obsession is moving from Historic Properties to Dartmouth Crossing.

Mezza and Bento Sushi opened in the Dalhousie Student Union Building.

Downeast Brewery and Beer Factory on Windmill has closed.

Sears announced the closure of 11 more stores including St. John’s. Halifax is not on the list, but I suppose that just helps with the rumour Simons has already acquired the lease.

Flair Airlines (who bought discount airline New Leaf in June) is discontinuing service to Halifax next week. New discount airline Jetlines is expected to offer Halifax to Hamilton (and then connections) starting in June and Halifax to Orlando seasonally.

Months ago I posted how much I liked the promo video for Quinpool now I present the Spring Garden one that I really don’t like

And a quick shoutout to Hoghorn BBQ on Tacoma that has the best BBQ, I have ever had in Canada.
