In 2013 Sobeys moved its store on Primrose Street in Dartmouth to Wyse Road leaving a large piece of empty real estate in Dartmouth’s north end.

Some of the space has been utilized in the interim by Dartmouth North Community Food Centre but on Tuesday a new retail food business opened at 6 Primrose St.

Coincidentally, in 2013 Lyndell Findlay started her company Blue Harbour Cheese in north end Halifax. Until now it has been mainly a cheese manufacturer but that will all change when she opens her new manufacturing plant and retail shop in the Primrose Plaza.

The retail shop will feature Blue Harbour’s three cheeses: the original cow milk based, semi-soft blue veined Urban Blue, which may be found in many food shops around the province; the sheep milk based semi-soft blue veined Electric Blue; and, the semi-soft washed rind Hip Hop, which is washed in craft beer.

Findlay also said she is “excited to promote all the Nova Scotia cheese makers” and all eight Nova Scotia artisan cheese makers will have product featured in the store. The store will also have some cheese accompanying items including crackers and jellies.

The new Dartmouth facility is also four times larger from Blue Harbour’s former location and where it used to only have a new Nova Scotia manufacturing license. Now it has a federal license, which opens significantly more markets to export its cheese.

I asked Findlay why the move to Dartmouth and she cited that it was a long look for the right facility and the Primrose site suited her needs best. Findlay and all her current staff live in Dartmouth, so she says the new location works out to be beneficial for everyone.

The store hours to start are going to be 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
