ReTales: A new Pete’s, Scanway Cafe, Halifax Moxie’s

A weird week. I launched NSReTales on twitter and Facebook, to cover things I find on the outside of the city. I went to McDonalds against my no chains philosophy for eating and blogged about it.

I was invited by the Downtown Halifax Business Commission to participate in the Big Day Downtown, $150 to spend on something Downtown I am going with an ambitious A to Z theme. With all that said there were still things uncovered including the fact Costco has Christmas trees out.

Pete’s Fine Foods is coming to the former Motherhouse lands at the Mount which are being redeveloped a mix used neigbourhood called Seton Ridge. This will be a new concept store and the Bedford store will continue as well.

Bowring and Bombay have filed for bankruptcy protection, business as usual for now but some store closures are expected soon.

Black’s Photography is closing its 2 remaining NS stores in Mic Mac and Halifax Shopping Centre.

The Attic on Queen is closing shop, last day will be August 30th.

Scanway opened their new Grafton St cafe, housemade donuts, and interesting gelato flavours like Rum or Popcorn are available.

Moxies has a job posting for an assistant manager at a soon to open Halifax location, where exactly in Halifax who knows. I have heard too many spots to confirm.

Dartmouth Crossing but flags up on the land just above McDonalds, strong indicators that it will be a Hilton Garden Inn. Also in DX the Woodys has signs that say it will be reopening soon.

Coming up this week, The Marshalls in Bayers Lake opens Thursday and Bubba Rays Too opens Monday in the former Red Fox.


I went to one of my favourites

Also this week I need to get out to Lawrencetown to try the newly created Donair Taco at Bro’s Tacos.
