Seasons of Tuxedo Store Preview Part Deux

Well, looks like a revision of what we saw on the Seasons of Tuxedo video. No longer does IHOP appear and ditto with Montana's Cookhouse or the banks. DQ and Harvey's have disappeared as well.

I can still make out Pita Pit and Subway but can't make out the other two. Looks like restaurants to me. Can anyone tell from the logos?

There are a few store additions beside the Ikea but I can't make those out either.

One new addition: Opening date of Cabela's is listed on the building.

Edit: It looks like it is Winnipeg's first location of Taco Del Mar, a Mexican restaurant.

On Friday, January 22, 2010, Taco del Mar filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Seattle. Among its major creditors were Suzanne Todd, a franchisee in Maryland, with a disputed claim for $500,000; Paul & Shahnaz Hendifar, with a $125,416 judgment entered in Texas; Canada Revenue Agency, with a $105,324 tax claim, and the city of Seattle, with a $95,289 claim for taxes.[13]

Taco del Mar was auctioned in a bankruptcy sale on September 30, 2010, and the winning bid of $3.25 million came from Connecticut company Franchise Brands LLC, according to a story in the Seattle Times.[14]

Franchise Brands was created in 2005 by Fred De Luca and Peter Buck the founders of Subway restaurants. Both Subway and Franchise Brands LLC are based in Milford, Conn.

Hello, I'm not sure you're correct in saying that it will be Winnipeg's first Taco Del Mar location. There are two other locations that appear to be 'ahead of the game' on opening: On on William at Sherbrooke, and one at Kenaston and McGillvary. Both are joint with new Subway locations. Its definitely interesting that they've removed IHOP and Montanas, but I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of them showed up anyway. The south and southwest quadrants could certainly use some breakfast-oriented restaurants... Coras on Waverley is a zoo; another Pancake House, or an IHOP would do very well near IKEA. I guess time will tell.
