For the second time I've barely noticed a storefront closing before a new business opens in the same space. This time it was Necessities on Quebec Street, which as I understand remained as the outlet for IF.. after that store moved to the square, before closing last week or so. The Little Fifth, which was in an impossibly tiny space across the road, is moving into the vacant space. A couple of weeks ago and a few doors down, a knitting store opened in the space of a gift shop that had just closed.
While that's all going on, though, the Daydream Nation space on Macdonell has been vacant for months, and of course retailers are seeming hesitant about the north end of Wyndham, where storefronts may or may not be torn down to make room for the new library.
In any case it seems Quebec Street at least is a desirable location.
