Great to see, but as with Sobeys (and Rogers Place for that matter), I hope we don't see vinyl all along 103ave.
I hope some of this excessive window coverage disappears when it opens. Maybe some corporate executives think it is great to cover almost every window in what they consider advertising, but it actually is a turn off for customers and others.

It really is a waste of their money and it diminishes their image and the image the premises they are trying to get people to go to. Sometimes less is more.

I think this is all we’ll get till the tower starts being built, other wise complete externally. They are doing some panel work buy the parkade entrance today though.

Personally, I’d be offended if there wasn’t a weed and liquor store in an entertainment district. So far the cannabis and liquor store are the only thing that could entertain me in that district. The ice house and bowling are the only other entertaining additions. You could make the argument that a liquor store isn’t needed as there’s bars around but I think it’s more so for the residents convenience, which means when phase 2 rolls out they’d probably just relocate the store and switch the plaza location to something better. A cannabis store is great for the area and a flagship one is even better. You have to change your perception to understand the addition better. Restaurants attract people to the district but they won’t always attract the right crowd. A lot of the times it’s just people grabbing a bite or having a business meeting over lunch. A cannabis store however is drawing the right crowd. Walk in the store grab yourself a joint rolled by the devil (fuck that guy) and get high af and play a round of bowling with friends or go play some ping pong high as shit. Casino is opening soon. Spark up your grass roll and 20 minutes later you’re on the moon, the only other thing on there happens to be the grand villa casino. Boom you just had a fun night and you’d probably tell a few people and word would get around. The power of weed. You know how many high people are hitting up those slot machines just for the fucking colours spinning and the noises? Me, I am “people”. It just connects everything in a nice way.
