Do the Retail Shuffle

Seems  just a couple of short years back there was a flurry of new businesses opening on the westside. The Kent store aside, it's been quiet lately.  Maybe that will change.

I've heard recently that the site of the former Blockbuster Video at the Lancaster Mall will house a Second Cup coffee shop and a Little Caesar's Pizza. I wonder if this is rumour or reality? The site has been empty for quite  a while - it would be nice to have something in there.

And, I was told that Better Buy Sports in Lancaster Mall is not going out of business, but it's relocating to the site of the former NBLC store in Westwind Mall on Fairville Blvd.  Apparently it's a better fit for them.    

Could be.

Travelling west - a change.

For  many years the large "Thorne's" sign displayed on the Chesley Drive shop storefront was a sure sign for me that the westside was up over the hill  - then it disappeared a few years back and the huge white expanse of nothing was all that passersby saw. Recently Source Atlantic added their logo and name to the facade.

I hope they get the point

I guess some folks weren't paying attention on the way in to the Irving Nature Park.
This should grab their attention.
