Demolish old urban texture on Fort Street while preserving service station bays at Cook and View? Sounds about right for Victoria.

Looks like Russell Books will retain its Books on View location and will also obtain a warehouse in James Bay as part of their move to the former Staples location: https://www.timescol...town-1.23847571

Yes, they will and they’ll also be unveiling signage on the new space very soon.

The Rohani tower previously featured a Scotiabank sign, and most recently a Staples sign. The top is now unadorned. Will a giant illuminated Russell Books sign beam down from the tower's apex?

Bahr's? They've relocated to 920 Pandora (formerly Relish) right beside the Pandora Pharmacy

The Mac's Store in Cook Street Village has re-branded to Circle K.  The Mac's and Circle K brands are both owned by Couche-Tard of Quebec, and I believe their intent is to transition all of their non-Quebec Mac's Stores to Circle K.

Couche Tard also owns the Wink's brand, so I'm not sure if the Wink's store in the shopping centre at Burnside/Douglas will become a Circle K or not...

 

Sign permit is in for the rebranding of Mac's on Douglas and Yates

I've seen quite a few Circle K signs pop up throughout the region.

Eventually it will be revealed that this entire exercise is a corporate tie-in with "Bill & Ted Face the Music".
