Only because we don’t have enough malls. Malls are the ultimate pedestrian environment: no cars, no weather. So it’s natural that when there aren’t enough, they are full of the highest-end retail. As more malls get built (or as certain ones lose their cachet for whatever reason), there is eventually room for lower-end establishments within them.

Well, Frederick Street Mall isn't your typical mall. Just sayin'.

Some more progress on the new LCBO store. According to the staff at the current location, the opening of the new store is planned for February.

Sad news, but as someone who used to manage a bike shop, its a tough business.

I never went but I always thought it was a creative idea, too bad that it didn't work out.

I thought their food was excellent, although the food prep/service model was not everyone's cup of tea, at least not if you were in a hurry.  The bicycle aspect of the business seemed superfluous to me.
