There’s yet another addition to Dartmouth’s budding downtown— The Trainyard General Store is a new shop that’ll open this summer. The store is going to be focused on all gifts, goods and furniture crafted in Nova Scotia, and there'll be workshop space for people who want to do their own creating.
Saturday "Open Project Days" will feature craft experimenting with a weekly featured material. Other crafter-led workshops will be held throughout the week, giving the those of us unskilled at craft to try our hands at it.
Jason MacDonald, who’s opening The Trainyard General Store with his wife Kimberly, is happy to be adding to downtown Dartmouth’s development.
“Dartmouth has a really cool vibe going on right now," he says. "Why not bring a little more awesomeness to the community?"
The shop, which will call 53 Portland Street (right between New Scotland Yard Emporium and the Portland Street Creperie) home, is getting ready for a soft open in mid-June.
