Changes at Almon and Windsor

Posted By on Fri, Mar 20, 2009 at 4:00 AM

"In '89, there wasn't much going on here," says Jeans and Gents Clothing Company (2816 Windsor, at Almon) owner David Kaulback about the corner where you can find his 20-year-old shop, just down from the Halifax Forum. "The original building owner said he'd give me a good deal on the rent and I could stay here until he died." Unfortunately, the gentleman in question did pass away, and the inheritor of the building appeared at the door to Kaulback's shop on December 27 of this past year. "I thought he was coming by with a Christmas card," says Kaulback. It was an eviction notice. "So, for no reason, we're going." Jeans and Gents Clothing Company closes its doors on April 1.


Kaulback is considering trying to find a new location for his cool, new and mildly used clothing store, its walls lined with jeans, jackets and apparel. He keeps a binder full of people's requests for pea coats, designer jeans and leather goods and he calls the customer when he's been able to find what's needed. Clearly, there are plenty of things still needed. "It's hard to find the right place with the right atmosphere," he says. Watch this space for more information, as we get it.


A door north, Bikes By Dave (2828 Windsor, 455-1677) is staying put at least through the summer, but a door south, the delightfully cluttered Almanac Used Furniture and Antiques (2810 Windsor, 455-1141) is also closing after 18 years. Michael and Lisa Isaac, the owners and operators, would like to say thank you to their many loyal customers.

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
