Location is permanently closed, I'm amazed he lasted that long. Never should have been a stand alone store, made much more sense to sell through Pseudio or somewhere similar.

Fog Off closed their brick and mortar store on Water Street but are still in business online ( https://www.fogoffclothing.com/collections/all ) and at various retailers across Atlantic Canada ( https://www.fogoffclothing.com/pages/where-to-buy ).

Article from The Telegram on Volkswagen moving to Kelsey Drive. I hadn't heard of it until now - I missed the post on it here from June.

"Engibeer
This may have already been posted but anyway, I was in VW/Audi the other day and the sales manager said they're about to kick off construction on a new VW dealership behind Wal Mart on Kelsey Drive. The existing building on Kenmount Rd. will sell only Audi products. Not sure on the timeline."

Yes, I believe the sign in their door said for personal reasons. Likely a death or illness I'm guessing.

Toys R Us in both USA and Canada have filed for bankruptcy protection. Not sure what this will mean for the St John's location?

Although it's not a big shock, Sears has been in decline for years. However, it'll be a definite impact on the local economy - I would imagine Sears employs around 100 people here. The retail sector is a tough place to be in right now.

Avalon Mall should take this opportunity now, especially since it's planning some major renos to rethink the Sears space. It's likely they will never get a tenant to fill that large space anymore. Last hope was Hudson's Bay perhaps, but they are struggling too these days. If it were up to me, I would devide up the space and extend the mall into it. Perhaps now, they will be able to entice some new tennants that they never had space available before, like H&M, Forever 21, or others. Though it still might be difficult with online shopping systematically destroying the physical retail store and shopping concept.

I'd imagine this would be the most logical step for the Avalon mall, especially given the ongoing renovations. The days of larger department stores are over and this can present an opportunity to attract new retail to the city. Hopefully the lag time will be minimal and those affected by this closure can seek re-employment.

Should move the food court there, get a few big name large restaurants added on to it.

Gap is actually apparently being split up into four smaller stores: Jump Plus, The Source, Charm Diamonds, and the fourth one is still unknown.

This mall floor plan from Crombie's website shows this.
