Coming soon to Stittsville: A Toys “R” Us


UPDATE: Toys “R” Us in Kanata / Stittsville grand opening is on Saturday, November 10.  More info…  It’s open for business as of the November 2-4 weekend.

There’s a Toys “R” Us coming to Stittsville, on the north side of Haleldean Road near Huntmar.  If I’m not mistaken it’ll be the region’s fourth Toys “R” Us in the area alongside Merivale Road, St. Laurent, and Gatineau.  (Update: Fifth if you count the Toys “R” Us Express mini store inside Place d’Orleans. Thanks SB!)

Joining Toys “R” US will be Ottawa’s 315th Shoppers Drug Mart, and a Food Basics.  For the longest time there was also a “Metro Coming Soon” sign just around the corner – I’ll ask around and find out if the Food Basics is replacing that.  We must be reaching the saturation point soon for grocery stores in Kanata/Stittsville.  Farm Boy alone is opening two new locations in Kanata South / Stittsville in the next few months, and Sobeys just added a second store earlier this fall.

(Update Nov. 15 – Councillor Shad Quadri tells me by email: “It is my understanding there will no longer be a Metro and that the Food Basics is taking that space.”)
For the record, Stittsville still does not have a Starbucks.

    Do you know when it's expected to be opening?

    No I don't, but my uneducated guess based on where construction is at right now — maybe in the fall?

    Got an email from Farmboy today. They will unfortunately not be opening a store at the corner of Eagleson Rd. and Bridgestone Dr. in Kanata South. But the email also states they are still looking for space in the general area.
