Peoples Jewelers has closed in the Highland Square Mall, in a corner section of the shopping centre that has been emptying slowly over the last few months.
There are only two stores remaining in that section. One is Sparkles Family Entertainment, which is moving as soon as their new location is completed across from the Pictou County Wellness Centre. Eclipse is also in that section. An employee said they hadn’t heard of any plans of what might be happening to their store.
Michael’s has been speculated as a possible occupant for the section, but both mall management and Michaels are offering no comment about that.
