For months I have been wondering what would go into 2173 West 4th Avenue. The Urban Puppy Shop made a quiet exit a few months ago, upon which the old building was torn down and replaced with a big bright new box.
At first I had high hopes of a great new restaurant ala Fuel or Gastropod, but the distinct lack of a kitchen quickly squashed those. This was destined to be retail. Boring retail, it turns out. There’s a poster in the window, announcing that this will be the new home of a Foot Locker outlet. This certainly continues the trend of big retail chains opening on 4th; first Reitmans, then Le ChÃ¢teau, and now Foot Locker.
