I walked past Harbour Trading Co, at the corner of Govt/Wharf/Humboldt & there are signs in the windows, so it looks like another souvenier store is closing. I hope it doesn't get replaced by yet another gelato place....

Is this a construction project or a business closing its doors?

Know it all.

James Bay Trading Company (which is actually downtown at Fort/Government) is closing as well. The large, stuffed black bear is for sale @ $1,000.

Maybe I should buy it and put it in the garden. Might keep the deer away.

That bear scares the bejeezus out of my retrievers. I'm surprised - because I'm sure it smells only of acrylic: but something that big and toothy hits my dogs' ancient "uh-oh" instincts.

I guess so, but is it an average? And if it's an average, is it an average of each and every commercial space, or just a selection of spaces? And if it's an average of each and every commercial space, is the entire length of the street figured into the average? The lengths of these streets can very tremendously. If only a selected portion of the length of each street was considered, then how was the selection determined? What about those streets (like Broadway in Vancouver) that have commercial sections here and there that differ widely in character from one another?
