Coffee Matters looks to be closed and there's a poutine restaurant opening on Water Street.

Coffee Matters is still open, I know someone who was there last night actually. The Poutine shop is called Smokey's Poutinerie, and it's a part of an Atlantic Canadian chain I believe. Do you know the address of their store? I think it's going to be on Duckworth street?

A specialty burger shop is also opening downtown this summer. Also a chain, Relish will be located in the abandoned building currently sitting on the corner of Water, Waldegrave, Harbour drive, and George Street W. (the building right next to the Ultramar gas station).

I walked Water Street last night and I can tell you that it's definitely on Water. I actually remember commenting on it and saying I didn't think it was possible for a specialty restaurant to survive on poutines. I know for certain i was on the east end of water towards Job's Cove/Baird's Cove. I'm trying to use Google Streetview to remember which building it was, but I'm drawing a blank on it.

It will be on the south side of Water Street around where the Asian Variety store used to be by that little alley that leads down to the parking lot off Harbour Dr.

There was paper over all the windows of Coffee Matters the other day when I went by, I figured they closed.

Smokey's Poutine is going on Water Street near the Fortis Building.

Smoke's Poutinerie is an Ontario-based poutine chain. They've just recently expanded to Atlantic Canada, I believe one opened in Halifax back in the fall. Here is a link to their website:

http://smokespoutinerie.com/

The burger place opening up on Waldegrave is called Relish Burger. I'm a huge fan of burgers so I can't wait for this place to open! Check out their website:

That's weird. Is that the location up by the Sheraton?

I noticed that the space behind Starbucks on Kenmount Rd. will be a Menchie's Frozen Yogurt store, a sign was posted in the window.

I noticed this. Upon looking in to the franchise a little further, it appears this store will be the only location east of Toronto for this chain.

Nice to see they'll use real curds (of course they will, being that it's what they do). I can't believe how many places here just shred some cheddar onto fries and gravy and call it poutine (Ches's, for instance). Really, even KFC uses curds!

Looking forward to this one. Fog City is alright, but it'll be nice to have a true top-notch burger joint in town.

I prefer shredded cheese.

Some of those poutines look a bit over the top, I cannot wait to try them. There's very few fast food restaurants downtow.

I'm all about poutine, especially REAL poutine. Enough of this shredded cheese mess, give me cheese curds and make me happy!

The Zellers that is closing on Topsail Road next to the village will reportedly become a Wal-Mart express.

Really? I was under the impression that all Zellers locations would be converted in to Target stores.

EDIT: Looks like Target sold their Topsail road location to Wal-Mart, interesting.

89,000 square feet of Walmart. That's a lot of space for an "express".

Not sure if it will be an "express" store, but this seems to confirm that it will be a walmart:

The Zellers on Stavanger will be a Target. I guess walmart is stepping up their presence to compete with Target. Funny considering they moved their old store in the village a few years ago which was across the street.
