Scotia Square’s Pay a Dollar Store
closed on Friday last week, and that isn’t the only change in the downtown mall: The Wicker Emporium
is closing, “hopefully at the end of March,” says a helpful staff person over the buzz of customers and cash registers. She says “hopefully” because it’s possible they could close sooner. Right now everything is in liquidation, 50 percent off most products in the homegrown, home accessories business, with key items going for as much as 70 percent off. Though Wicker Emporium won’t be downtown anymore, there are still locations at Halifax Shopping Centre, Bayers Lake, Sunnyside Mall, MicMac Mall and in May a new location will open in Dartmouth Crossing.
