Pop-up Shop in the Fundy Chocolate River Station
Isaac Lawson Stylish Clothiers, a Canadian fashion retailer for men and women, has opened a pop-up store in the Chocolate River Station. The temporary retail concept is modeled after similar pop-up boutiques appearing in major urban cities across North America. By offering the physical space for a storefront, retailers are able to test the market in Riverview before deciding to expand their business. The pop-up shop is open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday to Saturday until mid-April.
We hope to see you on Monday as Council will be debating the 5yr and 10yr capital plans. A lot of investment opportunities and projects that will really move us forward! Meeting time starts at 6:00pm. A Special Council meeting will follow as Council will hear a recommendation to extend the winter parking ban.
