Did it say permanently? Vic's and Avenue are temporarily closing.

That how it sounded to me. Struggling ones that were going to close permanently bc COVID was going to be too much to absorb. I guess that's the tough part of social media. Sometimes the message isn't clear.

I posted that on Social Media. Businesses will announce it when they are ready to. Some of them see the writing on the wall, while reality hasn't sunk in for many others.

I talked to lots of other biz owners that really have no plan and are hoping for the best. Many have said they can survive 2 weeks being closed, but not more.

This is all anecdotal, and hopefully there will be some govt relief for small business, but I think we all know how many of them have been barely scraping by for the last 3-4 years anyways.

It's always sad to see independents go. Their investment in the community is important. I hope the federal money announced today will help some of those entrepreneurs, even if they do have to close temporarily.

The other one I thought of later in the day yesterday was Fresh and Sweet. They've been hamstrung by the capital point hole and construction for years, and now when things look like there could be some semblance of normalcy, bam!

From CBC news...

It sounds as if the owner(s) of The Capital were already planning to rebrand that business and turn it into a burger bar. Read more in the article attached, written by Kendall Latimer of the CBC.

Probably old news to others that work downtown...

I called the Cornwall Centre this morning and the food court remains open for take out only. No seating is allowed.

I was also informed that there are 30 stores currently closed. They are allowing stores to remain open is they wish. The mall hours have also been reduced to 11 am to 6 pm Monday to Saturday and 12 noon to 5 pm on Sunday.

I have posted this in the Regina Retail thread as well.

Any word on what’s happening at the old Glitters location? Noticed the for sale sign was marked as sold earlier this week and today there’s a dumpster out beside the building. Seems like that building should have been knocked down.

There is a hand-written message taped to the west side of their electric sign saying opening in May. It has been up there for at least six months. I agree that it looks as if something is happening. The place needs a major overhaul. I used to go their once in a while. The place was dumpy but the food was okay.

Beer Bros and Bar Willow's owner thinks it's a 50-50 chance whether his two restaurants will survive the C19 shutdown.

Joeys website says it closed temporarily for COVID.

India House in the old South Keg has closed after a fire.

And so it begins.

I haven't been anywhere except to run so I haven't seen the empty places.

Sign went up on the Southland Swiss Chalet this week for Panda something Buffet.

Seems like an odd time to open any sort of restaurant, but especially odd to open a buffet (yes, I realize planning for this would've been well underway before physical distancing, etc)

Building sold, I've been assuming totally new concept.

I saw the back side of the former south Swiss Chalet, and the sign on the building reads Lucky Panda Buffet. Good luck with that.
