80 Prince William Street, Saint John, New Brunswick
Entrepreneur Katelyn Price had a successful first day yesterday at her new shop on Prince William Street called Juniper. She had identified this storefront as the perfect location back in March of 2020. The day she came in to sign the Offer to Lease, COVID-19 was first hitting the news! With all the uncertainly, she decided to delay signing the Offer in favour of a wait and see approach. Fast forward 3 months and she was ready to sign!
According to the ABOUT section of her Facebook Page, Juniper is “a sustainable lifestyle store”
“Juniper will provide the Saint John community with a convenient avenue of making sustainable and ethical consumer choices. We will carry clothing and skincare, as well as gifts and small home wares.”
Many of you may know the space as the former location of Liquid Gold and most recently ladies fashion store Uptown Vibes. For many years it was the home of the Buckland Gallery. The space has such a great aesthetic with the high/exposed wood ceilings and makes the perfect backdrop for all her beautiful natural products!

Something’s brewing at 60 Water Street but it’s probably not what you’re thinking!
More excitement and suspense for uptown… A brand new business leased space today on Water Street just steps from the corner of Princess & Water. Watch for an announcement and new signage in the not-too-distant future!
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/

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!
