Boston Pizza Lougheed closes down

The Boston Pizza on Lougheed Hwy between Madison and Gilmore has closed.  With its closure, the rumours can now run rampant (starting here) on whether or not Boston Pizza will set up shop in the Entertainment Plaza of the Amazing Brentwood development or somewhere else in the area.

Several years ago, the Milestones Restaurant closed down to make way for the Solo District development and had stated its intention to return to the neighbourhood.  Maybe Brentwood will also be the new location of Milestones.  As we approach 2018, some news on new commercial tenants for Brentwood should begin to come out.
