Is there anything more magical than the 9th Annual Crosby’s Gingerbread Trail?
Visit 26 candy-coated gingerbread creations, scented with cinnamon and bursting with colours of the holiday season.
Follow the Gingerbread Trail map HERE, and discover these holiday treasures at Uptown shops and restaurants. Tie a bow on a very special Christmas tradition! See displays now until December 24th. Sponsored by Crosby Molasses and Country 94.
When you think of Uptown Saint John, immediately King Street comes to mind. As does Germain, Canterbury, Princess, and others. There is another street, somewhat off the beaten path, that is part of an important revitalization.
That’s where you will find Riff Raff: Record and Skate Shop.
You can’t miss the striking yellow awning at 12 Charlotte Street. It’s where Trent Wheaton set up shop in March of 2020. COVID-19 forced a late opening in May, but Riff Raff was already adapting through e-commerce.
In-store, a larger than life Lemmy Kilmister overlooks the operation from above the room which is loaded with enough hard rock, metal, and punk vinyl to satisfy any degree of hard-edge musical taste.
The shop also carries a wide selection of skateboard equipment, clothing, and accessories. Essentially, it’s a boutique music store where you can get really cool skate stuff!
In a city which once had “Sam’s”, “Radioland” and “A&A Records”, the appetite is there for a specialty music store, one that compliments what Uptown Saint John already offers. The main difference being, the current music stores are 100% locally owned.
And for Saint John.
Visit Trent at Riff Raff, 12 Charlotte Street, and #LiftUpLocalSJ.
In this time of concern, we applaud everyone for staying home and staying safe. At the same time we salute our local businesses for their quality service during this time, as always, and others who are hanging on for when everything returns to ‘business as usual.’
Please feel free to join us in using these graphics to show our solidarity in fighting through these trying times, and demonstrating our support to the businesses we know and love.

SAFETY CHECKLIST FOR BUSINESSES
For businesses whose operations are closed during this time, Ottawa Police have created a safety checklist to ensure your shop or restaurant remains secure. Police recommend the following guidelines:
- Keep the lights on
- Remove ALL cash and receipts
- Do not leave any valuables clearly visible or accessible
- All safes and tills should be emptied and moved off-site for safe storage
- Keep all cash drawers open to show that nothing is in the drawers
- All ATM’s should be emptied and moved off-site for safe storage
- All alcohol products removed from bar and put in secured storage areas (no alcohol left visible from outside)
- Consider posting “NO CASH or Valuables on Premises” signage
- Deactivate all scheduled FOB door openings (ie. Cleaners, deliveries, etc)
- Disconnect all kitchen gas lines from their gas source
- Make regular site visits to monitor your shop/business and to manage inventory and storage conditions (consider scattering the times this is done to not establish a pattern)

Statement from Uptown Saint John Inc. – your local Business Improvement Association. Supporting our local businesses always.
Uptown Saint John Inc. your local Business Improvement Association (BIA) is currently making our best effort to provide additional social media coverage from our local businesses as they continue to make adjustments in response to #COVID-19. We ask that you check before you head out to businesses for their hours and offerings.
Please continue to support our small shops and restaurants as much as you can. We have noticed many restaurants jumping to services like Skip the Dishes and offering door to door delivery as well as take out. There are many shops who are asking for support through online and gift card purchasing, this is a very difficult time especially for our small businesses, support in the best way you can.
The BIA will not be conducting any further marketing and/or event type initiatives at this time. The Annual General Meeting to be held at the end of April will be reassessed closer to the date. Currently, the venue is closed. We are collaborating with other BIA’s across Canada through webinars and email discussions on future additional support. #strongertogether
