General Urban Kitchener Updates and Rumours
Not sure if it's already been mentioned, but Nougat will be relocating from Queen Street to Courtland/Stirling. The property has been sold and will be redeveloped.

Does that include the auto shop beside the Nougat that has been up for sale for a while?

Terrible move IMO. They had a great little spot before with some real charm and what I would consider a hidden gem of KW. Sure it wasn't perfect but this new spot is a definite downgrade.

For charm sake, yes it is a bad move, but moving next to Medix with some hungry PSW's, and right next to Iron Horse trail (again), makes it just as easy a destination for us sugar hoarding fiends. Also easier for traffic, that lot is horrid.
For me, it is 2 minutes from the kids' bus stop. DANGEROUS.

Stampede isn't really open during the day, so that won't affect the patron culture (thinking drunk patrons forgetting Nougat isn't a pizza joint), and it means I am WAY more willing to support them than my local Timmy's, as it is way walk friendly for me.

Not sure where to stick this:

The Nougat website has a render/mock up of what their new location will look like.

I think "a bust" and "goes bust" are slightly things.

The article is somewhat confusing though, given that apparently the property is advertised under power of sale right now (with apparently false advertising), and also NLK is looking for new financing, do they intend to buy it back?

I agree.  Less eclectic but it should be a net gain for the business.  For a business owner being a "hidden gem" isn't necessarily the best thing, it's better to have more visibility.  And the new location is still about as walkable as the old one.
