General Retail News



Re: General Retail News - panamaniac - 09-03-2014

A "Re-opening Soon" sign has gone up at B & T Supermarket at 470 King St E. It is just about a year since they were closed following a fire.


Re: General Retail News - panamaniac - 09-11-2014

I had occasion this morning to stop in at Kishki World Foods, the updated version of Kishki Halal Food Market (200 Highland Rd West), which re-opened about three weeks ago. It has a very modern clean look to it, with a good variety of Middle Eastern foods, bakery, butcher counter, some fresh produce etc. I looks pretty good.

The variety of ethnic foods available down in that part of town is impressive. Afghan, Portuguese, Salvadoran, Ethiopian, Middle Eastern, plus EuroFoods just down the road.

Taya Fashion at 157 King St W has closed. The St Jacobs store remains open. It seems that retail continues to struggle Downtown, unfortunately.

The former KFC building at Highland Rd has been turned into an alterations and dry cleaning business.

Looks like The Bargain Shop's cousin Red Apple in Forest Glen Plaza is also closing down. Maybe the company is going out of business.

Sail opens in Cambridge on November 26, I am looking forward to checking it out.


RE: General Retail News - panamaniac - 11-26-2014

I stepped in to The Bargain Shop this morning on my walk. I had forgotten how large it is and that it has a full basement. The place could very easily be split into two large retail spaces.


RE: General Retail News - panamaniac - 11-29-2014

The Metro supermarket at 980 Franklin Blvd in Cambridge will be closing in the new year.


RE: General Retail News - TMKM94 - 11-30-2014

Do you know if the metro will be turning into a food Basics or are they completely closing it?


RE: General Retail News - DHLawrence - 11-30-2014

There's already a Food Basics at Franklin and Saginaw/Holiday Inn Drive, so it would be surprising if they did.

With a large Zehrs only five minutes away, the odds were not in their favour.

Part of the Metro could be turned into a No Frills apparently.

Stopped by there today, quite impressive. Amazing footwear selection, quite a good variety of other stuff as well; the hunting/fishing gear is all upstairs if that's not your thing, which is kind of nice.

The always higher prices in METRO stores likely caused its demise.

No Frills is a Loblaw corporate brand.


RE: General Retail News - panamaniac - 12-15-2014

The Cash Store at King and Queen Sts seems to have closed (again). I hope the closure is permanent this time.
