[Saint John] Retail Thread

Looks like RR Drummer was correct. The East Walmart will simply be a retro-fit of the current store. I came across this PDF yesterday, and thought I would share it with you.

I had heard similar word about Wal-Mart in the past few days re: renovating their current location into a Supercentre.

I wonder why that map pdf doesn't show East Side Mario's. Has it succumbed to the swampy conditions?

Yeah, that is odd. Even in the old map they didn't make any mention of it. I guess they are only concerned about their own property. Or maybe the swamp finally got the best of it. Haha

Saint John has an Old Navy and Freddy is still waiting ? TANJ!

Wish our Smart Centre would get off the ground more. It's got lots of pads available but no one seems to want to continue it since Kent, Crappy Tire and WalMart built

Saint John has had an Old Navy for almost 10 years.

LOL - I was just about to say the same thing! I believe the Moncton, and Saint John one's opened within a month of each other.

Shows how often I get down there. But I've got a friend/coworker in SJ for cancer treatment so I may be down a few more times. (If only it was a 4 lane highway thru and thru, then it'd be a quick trip down.... )

And regardless, it still sucks Freddy doesn't have it. Then again Gap Outlet just opened.

A few retail/consumer spending tidbits that I thought were interesting.

I also love how out of scale the site is with the surrounding contextual road map... Where did Parkway Mall and Morland Park go?

I don't blame them for forgetting about Parkway Mall.

It appears Fruits and Passion in McAllister has closed up shop.


Clearing way for a Bath & Body Works? Yes please.

Is BBW still slated to open in April? I've noticed a few job postings for them lately...

Even though it opened in November, I was really surprised to walk past Saint John's new Gap Factory Store in East Point.

They're hiring a Store Manager, it seems...

April seems feasible.

I was told yesterday by a shop manager in McAllister Place that B&BW will move into where Peoples and Blacks were

She also said that Walmart had purchased/Leased the Winners Property to expand. no sure if that is true or not.

She also mentioned that the rumor at the mall is that Sears will be closing and that H & M will be moving into that loction.

That Sears location is 130,000 sq ft. Meaning they would need to hack that location into many pieces. Which isn't happening anytime soon.

The Walmart isn't taking the Winners property. The site plan I uploaded is from the real estate firm who owns that property. As you can see Winners/Homsense is there along side of Walmart. So Winners/Homesense will continue to be there.

BBW are typically small stores. So I don't see them taking both Blacks, and Peoples. However we shall see I guess.

Why couldn't they? I think it would be better to have four medium sized stores in that area than trying to go for one large anchor tenant.

If Sears were to close, that would leave SJ without a traditional department store. Wow. That'd be quite the ego hit if we lost ours while Fredericton and Moncton kept theirs.

Maybe they'll relocate Uptown, lol.

I can't imagine SJ losing Sears. I think this rumour is highly unlikely.

Also, the Sears space is way too large for H&M.

Hardly. In fact, it'd probably be an ego BOOST. "Haha, we got rid of our useless and incompetent failing department store before you did!!"
