Halifax Restaurant

After Vandal Doughnuts closed shop in Gus’ Pub, one of Halifax’s favourite watering holes on the corner of Agricola and North Streets, Taco Lina’s has filled the space (and the stomachs) of North Enders. Owners Sam and Tony Rinaldo, who also run Rinaldo’s Italian American Specialties and the hot dog pop-up at Good Robot Brewing, saw space in the area for a taco shop featuring tacos, nachos, jalapeño poppers and salads.

St. John’s-based clothing brand The Shop, SALT is expanding their online shopping business to a brick-and-mortar holiday shop in Grand Falls-Windsor. Owners Emily Evans and Lauren Saunders — who both grew up in Grand Falls — decided it was the right business move for SALT.

Close To The Heart, an online babywearing store based in Moncton, New Brunswick has opened a new storefront at 1988 Mountain Road. After five years of selling online and being named the best babywearing store in the country by Babywearing in Canada, owner Larissa Flanagan decided to open a shop with a variety of babywearing products as well as local handmade wares. The store will also have a community area for local events to be held.
