Jean-Talon Market & area 2014
Big renovations coming soon at the market, SAQ will move in a bigger space: http://journalmetro.com/opinions/pays...
Thanks for the news, Glaff. Especially if the SAQ is towards the western edge of the market, and a bit south of the current Jean-Talon location, I don't see how they can justify keeping the current Petite-Italie location, as they are less than five minutes' walk apart (even with groceries) even now.
The SAQ at the market gets long queues on weekends, and there is no room to wait comfortably, or to put in more cash registers. I prefer to shop at Petite-Italie for that reason, unless I go to Beaubien. It is a tiny bit closer to my place than those other two are, but I really can't complain...
If the SAQ moves, perhaps Fromagerie Hamel will expand once more as well.
By the way, the Jean-Talon métro station is getting an elevator, set to open this autumn.
