I'm a bit too young to be able to contribute to this thread much, but I love reading through it.
I'm curious about the Dartmouth IKEA. When did it open? When did it close? What building was it located in, exactly? (My parents said it was on Akerley Blvd).
Edit: I was searching for info in old editions of the 4th Estate newspaper available online at NSARM and found this interesting map from 1976. Interesting because I had always simply assumed the earliest Burnside developments would have been closer to the Circ.
