I’ve been compiling a list of national/regional retailers who currently have a presence in Atlantic Canada (specifically Moncton and/or Halifax). These retailers are hot prospects for attraction. They already understand the east coast so opening a store in Saint John should not be too much of a stretch for them.
If I’m missing any, please email me at email@example.com
LIST OF RETAILERS WITH LOCATIONS IN ATLANTIC CANADA (but not in Saint John, NB) in alphabetical order.

8-10 Millennium Drive, Quispamsis, New Brunswick
Murphy’s Pharmacies of PEI are opening a location in Quispamsis under the Guardian Drugs banner. Murphy’s operates a chain of independent pharmacies and have been serving the health needs of communities across Prince Edward Island for 30 years. “We’re been working with Irving Oil through Partners Global and Provincial Realty for some time now to lease space in the Millennium Drive retail development. We’ve leased the two remaining vacant units between Subway and House of Chan. One side will be a pharmacy and the other a medical clinic including after-hours clinic” said Jeff Murphy, Chief Financial Officer at Murphy’s Pharmacies. “We love the location. Being close to a growing residential area made a lot of sense for us.”
Stephanie Turner was the listing agent.
66 PRINCE WILLIAM STREET, SAINT JOHN
The Prince William Street storefront which is well known to locals as the upscale hair & esthetics salon “Salon Circa” has announced it is closing at this location.
Owner Donnie Coholan posted the following public statement on Facebook this morning “To our dear clients and friends….after (20 plus) years of service, we at Salon Circa have collectively decided to end our joyous run and go separate ways! As sad as we are to do this, we are going to keep our business uptown and close to one another…”
The 1,775 square foot salon with embossed ceiling and exposed brick is available for lease.

Something’s brewing at 60 Water Street but it’s probably not what you’re thinking!

Kate Thompson (née Lordon) owner of Silver Daisy (80 King) fell in love with the former Birks location and knew immediately that she wanted her business there. “The space is elegant and it inspired me to rethink my whole offering. LORDON is Silver Daisy’s upscale and sophisticated older sister and we promise you’re going to LOVE it! We’re keeping all of your favorite brands but we’re adding SO many more.”
“We are over-the-moon excited to show you everything!” says Kate. They will be keeping everyone informed along the way with sneak peeks of their gorgeous new store and amazing new product. Follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/SilverDaisySJ/

20 King Street, Saint John, New Brunswick
The sun came out and so did the tenants! The Landlord, in fact, received two offers to lease on this space just days apart. The ink is now dry on a lease for a tenant to set up in this prominent uptown corner formerly occupied by Birks Jewelers. The store is scheduled to open in August.
Unfortunately, I’ve been sworn to secrecy on who it is. All I can say is that it’s retail and is a good fit with the mix of tenants currently in CenterBeam Place. Be patient…it won’t be long!
Cox Electronics, with locations in Saint John, Fredericton and St. Stephen, have announced that the stores will be closing at the end of 2016. After more than 40 years in the consumer electronics business, the owner, Philip Brewer has decided to retire. “Although it is time for me to enter a new phase of my life, there’s tremendous value in our bricks & mortar which means a fabulous opportunity for other retailers who are looking to enter and/or expand in to the Saint John market”, says Brewer. Although the Saint John building has been used for retail in the past (more…)
