AFAIK, On The Run is the largest convience store chain in the GTA. I guess Couchetard will be rebranding these too. It will be tough for anyone to top Circle K.
It simply matters what information we're looking to discover. If we're looking to discover which chain has the most locations including those part of gas stations, then no. But if we're looking for the retailer with the most stand alone stores, then yes.

Personally, I don't care how many stores that are part of gas stations exist because I see these as being gas stations that just happen to offer a wider variety of services rather than retail chains because the retail portion probably wouldn't even be there if the gas station didn't exist.

One thing I am wondering: what will happen to retail in small to mid-sized cities in the future? I'm thinking under 200,000 especially.

They have never released a rendering of this project.

We'll find out soon enough though.

(The Nordstorm and Uniqlo will share that second level space)

I find Yorkdale unbearably crowded and an unpleasant place to shop.

They can expand that mall 100 times and it will still be insane.

IKEA Canada Announces Full Size Store in Halifax


http://www.ikea.com/ca/en/about_ikea...canada_halifax

This location will be the most sustainable IKEA store in Canada complete with focus on energy efficiency, waste management and mobility


Burlington, ON – In November 2015, IKEA Canada announced a coast-to-coast expansion plan to double the store count from 12 to 24 stores in the next 10 years. Today, IKEA is pleased to make the first announcement on this coast-to-coast journey that a full size IKEA store will be coming to Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Located at Dartmouth Crossings, the store will take roughly 14-16 months to build once the ground has been broken in summer 2016 and will be approximately 328,000 square feet (30,500 metres squared) in size. The store will include a restaurant, Market Hall, Showroom, and SMALAND playroom and offer customers a complete range of convenient services such as product pick-up, home delivery, assembly, planning, returns and exchanges and online sales support.

“IKEA is thrilled to be bringing a store to the Halifax marketplace, we have for a long time, considered Halifax to be a key market for expansion,” said Stefan Sjöstrand, President, IKEA Canada. “We look forward to serving the Halifax market and are confident that we will have a positive impact on the community as well as the economy through directly and in-directly creating nearly 500 jobs.”

“I want to thank IKEA for hearing the chorus of voices eager to see a store open in our city. This store will be a significant employer and a big draw for the entire Halifax region,” said Mayor Mike Savage, City of Halifax.

IKEA Halifax will be constructed to operate as the most sustainable IKEA store in Canada, with a particular focus on energy efficiency and waste avoidance. Key features of the building will include a rooftop solar photovoltaic installation to provide electricity to the store, geothermal energy generation system to support heating and cooling needs, as well as 100% LED lighting throughout the store. Waste management equipment will be installed to maximize material recycling and diversion from landfill, and a free take-back service will be offered for household batteries and light bulbs to ensure the hazardous materials contained are recycled responsibly.

“IKEA’s vision is to create a better everyday life for the many people, and we are determined to have a positive impact on people and the planet,” added Sjöstrand. “IKEA Halifax will be constructed and operated with sustainability in mind, and will also be a destination to find solutions for a more sustainable life at home.”

To become a leader in life at home in the Halifax marketplace we need to truly connect with people and helping them live a better everyday life at home. Before the store opens, IKEA will do 100 home visits, interviewing people in their homes to get a deep understanding of their needs, dreams and frustrations in and around the home. The new store will reflect the market with relevant, affordable home furnishing solutions and local architecture. Our intention is not to mirror what people have in their homes today, but to help people live a better everyday life at home and show them new ideas to solve their needs.

As the smallest city with a full-sized IKEA, Halifax will dominate the key "most IKEAs per capita in Canada" metric. For some reason mass-produced IKEA stuff is also okay with most hipsters so the city doesn't have to give up on that dream either despite the fact that this is exacerbating the hideous sprawl in that part of town.

I figured IKEA would open a full-sized store in Halifax since Winnipeg has had one for a few years and the volume of online orders was supposedly similar. When it comes to regional stores and infrastructure Halifax tends to get more than other Canadian cities of similar size because there aren't any comparably sized or larger cities in the Maritimes. People will come from nearby parts of NS, NB, and PEI to shop here, whereas in a place like Kitchener the shoppers are already siphoned off by Toronto.

January 22, 2016


HALIFAX — Ikea has announced plans to build a full-size store in the Halifax area, the first of 12 new stores the Scandinavian furniture chain will roll out across Canada over the next decade.

Stefan Sjostrand, the president of IKEA Canada, said the 30,472 square-metre store will be located in the Dartmouth Crossing retail area and will include a showroom, playroom and restaurant featuring the company’s signature Swedish meatballs.

IKEA currently has Canadian stores in Coquitlam, B.C.; Richmond, B.C.; Calgary; Edmonton; Winnipeg; Montreal; Quebec City; Boucherville, Que.; plus six in Ontario: Burlington, Etobicoke, London, North York, Ottawa and Vaughan.

Halifax, which according to the 2011 Census has a population in its census metropolitan area (CMA) of around 390,000, is the 13th-largest CMA in Canada and, until the announcement Friday, was the country’s biggest region to not be serviced by an Ikea. The next-biggest CMAs without an Ikea within reasonable driving distance: Victoria, B.C. at 345,000, followed by Saskatoon at 261,000 and Regina at 211,000.
