** 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.
