Any word on whether Shoppers Drug Mart will be moving into the vacated Chapters location on Douglas? I apologize in advance for this off-topic post.


My understanding is that's been a done deal for a long time

Bass Pro doesn't really do "urban" stores... just look at where they're located in every other city. Pretty much always at the edge with major highway access. Mayfair probably doesn't tick the right boxes for a Bass Pro/Cabelas.

 

Ivanhoe Cambridge owns Tsawwassen Mills, so it's not like they're unfamiliar with the brand.

Yes I know i've patronized the brand for 20+ years now (where is that facetious emoji Mike K?) both here and the US and know that with the BP in Tsawwassen and the Cabela's in Nanaimo that Mayfair is a long to non-existent shot. That said.... 

 

.....my actual point was that by continuing the previous rinse and repeat trend of offering up little more than "fashion chain" stores, primarily, the expanded Mayfair like many malls continues to ignore the other half of the demographic that could care less.

 

Whether it be a fishing/sports or hardware or hobby store include something - anything - that will entice males to walk through their doors. At the very least it will give us something to do while the wives and daughters make a fuss over the Pandora beads, the Coach purses and the Sephora makeup kits.....

I'll throw another guy-friendly name out there: Lee Valley Tools.

The latter name seems rather ironic, n'est-ce pas?

I own some commercial real estate and I will say that while I have the list of tenants on my wishlist not all want to lease in the locations I have so there is that

 

I've been to Cabela's in Nanaimo, walked around, yawned and then walked out without buying anything.  Never been to BP thou although I do like to fish

 

Anyway like I said earlier with the age of online shopping its rare I need to even go to a store, everything comes right to me usually at cheaper prices and if I am lucky I can even skip the PST.  I am almost on a first name basis with the UPS guy he is at my house so much

Perhaps the Indigo opening is imminent: Chapters downtown is having a “store closing” sale with all books 25 percent off. The magazine section in the downtown store has been discontinued (I believe it was managed by a third party).

The downtown store closes Sept 10.

Apparently there's also a deal this week where if you buy $40 in books you get a $10 Indigogift card. Might have to try and get down there tomorrow.

Well, the more they sell now, the less they have to pack and move. May pop in after work and see what's available.

The new Sportchek at Mayfair is quite nice. Although, the golf section seems to have actually shrunk.
