    I believe it's going into the spot that was occupied by South St Burger.

    A couple of other things that are apparently happening:
    - The Milestones that closed in Empress Walk is being replaced by California Sandwiches. They're a mini-chain in the GTA.
    - The Keg's new location is mostly finished. I'll post a picture later - it looks really slick. Some similar restaurant building also seems to be going up a few blocks north of Empress Walk (I didn't get a picture when I passed that one)
    - Farther north, Lowe's is going into the Centrepoint Mall's north anchor spot, which has been empty since Target's big failure in 2015.

    The Lowe's has been open for a while now. However, due to space restrictions it's not a full size Lowe's so it doesn't carry the same amount of inventory that a normal Lowe's would.

    I've never seen staff avoid customers so blatantly as I did at this location. I was killing time during a car servicing appointment and wandered in to browse. This wasn't too long after it had opened, and it wasn't busy.

    Several staff members walked right by me. Not a single one greeted me, asked if I needed help, or even made eye contact. And a poor older couple in the bathroom section was standing by the service desk waiting for someone -- anyone -- to help them. I think they finally got someone to page whoever was supposed to be "working" in that dept, as I heard the page request about 3-4 times after I'd moved on.

    Doubtful I would ever go back.

    Morals Village (a Chinese hot pot restaurant) is opening on the second floor of Empress Walk directly above the new Pet Smart.
