Wowzers, ok it was some time ago then. I guess because nobody really noticed it stuck to its original name.

Perhaps this is a record holder for a place that changed its name (well, the part after 5th Street) but common parlance never caught up.

Know it all.

Their branding within the few months uses at least five names, all prefixed with "5th Street:" Bar & Grill, Wood Fired Rotisserie, Wood Fired Grill, Rotisserie, and Bar & Wood Fired Grill.

Suffice to say they remained 5th Street and ran with that.

Along with others above, I still constantly call University Heights "K-Mart Mall".  I also still call the old Safeways (Tillicum Mall, University Heights, Fort-Foul Bay) Safeway.

Memorial Arena is another one that stuck. If anything I probably hear it mistaken as Save On Foods Memorial Arena more than Save On Foods Memorial Centre!
