Farewell, Freshmart

Posted By on Thu, Feb 14, 2008 at 10:26 AM

Another longtime Halifax business is also toast: Locally owned grocery emporium the Novalea Freshmart (3576 Novalea), open since the ’60s, shut its doors last week. Another yet-to-be-announced business will open in the space in March, but Freshmart owner John Harlow was tight-lipped about what that mystery business might be. Harlow says that the introduction of Sunday shopping in the chain grocery stores was a major cause of the Freshmart’s closure: “Ever since Sunday shopping came in, we knew it wouldn’t be long. We kept doing what we could to try and survive, but it’s just not feasible anymore.”
