Dear WRConnected Users: WOW! Our fourth "birthday"! We've grown so much over the past four years, and much of that is because of you, the amazing WRConnected Users. But like any other website, there are costs associated with running it. As some of you may already know, we accept donations. Some of you have made donations (thank you!). This helps cover some of the background costs associated with running this site. If every user were to donate $1 we would more than cover our yearly expenses. If WRConnected is useful to you, take a minute and help keep it online for another year. Any donation is helpful. Thank you.

Liquidation World was much later. In the late 70s it was K-Mart and Zehrs.
I still remember the basement, with the bowling alley.

Don't forget the pet and hobby store
I remember working at cyclepath on King and Erb and walking to A&W for lunch. Long time ago.
The city is repairing the sidewalks along Regina (and the surface asphalt).

It seems like an odd choice given that all this new concrete will get trashed and redone during construction:

Granted the sidewalks (and asphalt) were it horrible shape along there, but couldn't they have saved some resources and money by grinding trip hazards down and patching holes until after construction and prioritize another project area?
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.

I noticed that they replaced some of the short brick sidewalk portions closer to Erb with concrete too.
I guess the alternative would be, leave the sidewalk in poor shape until construction starts at some point in the future. Given that it is right next to City Hall, I could imagine that someone who was upset about the poor sidewalk conditions wouldn't have far to go to complain!
Driving past this the other day, it looks like not much was done around this development property — most of the replaced sidewalks were further along regina.
