Walmart, who own the plaza were going to take it over for their own, likely for groceries. No Frills was letting their stock dwindle as the closing date loomed, however they ended up entering into a new lease agreement with Walmart. So the shelves are fully stocked once again.

Did you check store locations, on The Source site? If it's not listed there, that store is gone.

I'm a bit stunned, but this nugget fell through the cracks here...

New No Frills opens on west Hamilton Mountain

A new 20,000-square-foot grocery store is open and serving the southwest Mountain.

Paul and Adele Henderson opened the new No Frills store at the corner of Stone Church and Upper Paradise on March 27.

Paul started in the grocery business working for his father in Niagara Falls in 1983.

Adele met Paul when she first started working with No Frills in 1995 in Welland. They’re been married 19 years and franchisees for 13 years.

Before opening the Upper Paradise store, the couple ran a No Frills in Elmira.

The new west Mountain store is one of the first to feature an updated look.

“No Frills is still committed to value and pricing for customers, but this is a new look just to freshen things up,” said Paul.

With the nearest grocery store nearly two kilometres away, the Hendersons see an opportunity to do well in an underserved area.

“There is a need for a neighbourhood store here,” says Paul.
It's nice to see that that part of Hamilton has a closer option for people to bag some food stuffs than the Meadowlands now. =)

I saw that the other day. I used to live near there when it was a grocery store before it became a DOT. I was surprised that DOT lasted as long as it did.

20,000 sq feet is small for a grocery store now, and there's a Food Basics at Mohawk which is very busy and a No Frills at Magnolia and Mohawk, plus Sobeys in the Meadowlands. The Meadowlands power centre really made that plaza struggle.

That would have been very convenient when I lived in that area, lived almost across the street from Gilkson Park.
I used to shop at Metro at Mohawk and Upper James. I'd also shop at Sweet Paradise a lot because it was close.
I'd never go to the Meadowlands except for a rare trip to Costco because the traffic in the area is also bad.

I was kinda hoping it would be the Box instead of No Frills. There's the Box at Queenston.

The Box is a small store with low operating cost therefore it's cheaper than even No Frills. Box is also owned by Loblaws.

By the way the new No Frills is really nice. I was really surprised by the large produce selections. The aisles are clean and spacious and pretty much the end walls are side to side with fridges and freezers, so tons of options.

Remember our recent back-and-forth about Jackson Square? Flatspot is yet another example of a store which could help make J Sq a destination mall. Nicely designed retail space. Yet the store is leaving!

Jackson Square is truly the "utility mall"

Thats really weird. They just moved into that freshly renovated spot in Jackson a year or two ago. Before that they had also been shuffling around King Street West a bit. They can't seem to get their feet planted in the ground anywhere...

The former Target/Zellers in the Ancaster Meadowlands is being renovated into 3 units - a Marshalls, a Home Sense, and a Designer Show Warehouse. (Source: City of Hamilton Building Permit Search). Work is already underway with most of the front facade ripped off.

Yup - beside the Sports Authority, so now that will be vacant unless someone is already lined up to move in.

Apparently the rumour is that Farm Boy is going to Mohawk and Magnolia, used to be No Frills.

The format kinda reminds me of the old The Barn, basically farm fresh produce, sourced locally when in seasoned, mostly organic options, organic meats, free range eggs and prepared foods with no preservatives. So kinda like Goodness Me meets The Barn.
