    Toronto non-mall retail (Odds & Ends)

    Per an email to members, GoodLife claims they are being forced out of their space at 10 Dundas East:

    Toronto | Atrium on Bay Expansion | 82m | 19s | H&R REIT | P + S / IBI

    On the east end of the building, Boathouse recently reduced their footprint, and the balance was just taken over by Long Tall Sally, which moved across the hall despite only renovating a year or so ago. Their previous space is of course adjacent to Muji, which (one can only speculate) might be...

    Dagu Rice Noodle at Bay and Dundas opened tonight. Place seemed to be packed, though they didn’t make much effort to remove the old delivery-service decals from the previous tenant.

    Sears Canada (1952-2017)

    Yep. Re their Avalon Mall location, St. John’s was basically a captive market for them as the only traditional department store left in Newfoundland. During the oil boom a few years ago, this might have created an opening for Hudson’s Bay to come in, but it may be a longshot in the current...

    Well, if that block of the mall can support two Freshly Squeezeds - one on each end...

    Sears Canada (1952-2017)

    This is just court approval to start liquidation sales for the closings previously announced. No more stores are being closed (yet) beyond those in the original creditor-protection announcement.

    Restaurant Comings & Goings

    The Bareburger franchise at Bay and Dundas has been closed the past few days. I remember seeing a closure for emergency maintenance a couple of weeks ago (but then reopened), then over the weekend they were closed again with a sign up saying they were having difficulties, "please bear with us"...

    Toronto Eaton Centre

    Dairy Queen/Orange Julius has a banner up to the effect that their lease is expiring shortly, "thank you for 38 great years".

    Shoppers Drug Mart

    That may be true but I'd be surprised if it's Nutella, given that the concept isn't exclusive to Loblaws. But along the same lines, I don't suppose they might squeeze in a Joe Fresh there...?

    As per a SIR Corp. press release, their Far Niente, Four and Petit Four restaurants (all in Commerce Court at 187 Bay) will be closing at the end of the month, due to a dispute over lease renewal terms. Edit: actually closing this Saturday, then vacating by end of month.

    Toronto | Atrium on Bay Expansion | 82m | 19s | H&R REIT | P + S / IBI

    As was noted in one of the retail threads, the space Nike is taking (formerly a Guess store) will be a store for their Jordan brand. I work in the area – they are doing extensive work in that space, but the rest of the building isn't affected.

    Mr. Sub vs. Subway

    Mr. Sub sends out flyers occasionally (I got one last week), otherwise the only marketing I see nowadays are ads on the boards/ice at Leafs and Raptors games. I recently heard from a family friend who is involved in a few locations (not around here) that a big chunk of their ad budget is tied...

    Toronto non-mall retail (Odds & Ends)

    I assume this is the thread for Atrium on Bay, seeing all the Muji discussion is here. Anyway, noticed today that there's a coming soon sign for a Ryerson University campus store in a small space in the basement level on the Yonge end, next to Pickle Barrel. Seems like a curious location to...

    Toronto non-mall retail (Odds & Ends)

    I doubt the rest of the chain will be around much longer, as it recently went into bankruptcy protection.

    Toronto | Motion On Bay Street | ?m | 29s | Concert | IBI DAA

    Updates to the retail in this building: Bubbletease and the aforementioned nail salon have now opened on the north side of the building. Aroma Espresso Bar recently put up "coming this fall" signage in the space at the southeast corner of the building. They appear to be taking over both the...
