With the heavy reno going on in the building at the northwest corner of Windsor and Almon, the businesses that were once in there have all had to relocate. Shoptalk reported that the first to go, Jeans and Gents
, having been on Windsor for 20 years, now can be found at 2592 Elm at Chebucto. Family-run antiques store Almanac Antiques, Books and Records
has reopened in an old garage at 2820 Isleville Street (455-1141). Expect to find the choice pieces of furniture, old books and records as at the previous location. They’ve even brought along the big blue canopy, which regular customers should recognize. Bikes by Dave
has found a home at 6191 Young (455-1677) in a former internet café directly adjacent to the Atlantic Superstore on Young Street, a location that offers a little more traffic than before but is still in the same ‘hood. The vibe with the bike experts remains consistent, with the same top-notch service and dog-friendly atmosphere, and look for the store to get a website this winter. Another refugee from the Almon/Windsor building is Permanent Ink
tattooing. You’ll now find it at 3040 Oxford Street at the corner of Young, 444-4465. Strictly Single Sports Cards,
(455-2132) the last business left in the place, will be moving September 1 to 6160 Almon---just beside the Legion and across from the CNIB.
