New bar and grill, daycare opens the doors and personal stylists open up shop on the latest Business Beat


New business brewing

A new bar and grill will be turning on the taps on Monday. The Canadian Brewhouse has more than 28 other locations across Canada, but has had its eye on St. Albert for a while.

“We’ve got a lot of stores in Edmonton and St. Albert has been on our radar for many years, it was something we wanted to do,” said Aaron Ejzenbart, general manager of the location.

The brew house is approximately 8,000 square-feet, featuring two floors, an outdoor patio and a large dining area.

Each day will feature a new special, from Dry Rib Mondays to Wingtastic Wednesdays and Steak and Sangria Saturdays.

Ejzenbart said he’s looking forward to building relationships with residents in St. Albert.

“I’m looking forward to getting involved with the St. Albert community,” he said. “We’re really excited to get into the community and get to know everyone and be involved in as much as we can.”

The brew house will be hosting a VIP night on Saturday and Sunday for friends, family and a few residents in the area. Ejzenbart said all proceeds of the evening will go towards St. Albert Minor Hockey Association.

Opening hours will be Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to  2 a.m. The Canadian Brewhouse is located at 101 St. Albert Trail.

Child’s play

On Dec. 4 tiny feet started stomping around A Nana’s Love Daycare. The new business offers daycare for children up to five years old, with a capacity to hold up to 61 children.

Betty Smith, owner of the daycare, opened the facility after she and her husband retired and she was looking to start something new. When her daughter said she needed to find a daycare for her child, Smith got the idea to start the business.

“I love playing with the kids,” she said.

Smith grew up in St. Albert, giving her a close connection with the community. She said it’s only fitting that she’d open the daycare in her home city.

A Nana’s Love is located at 570 St. Albert Trail, at the old Soda Jerks location. It has four rooms for infants and babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and kindergarteners.

All staff members hold a minimum certification of a child development assistant and the daycare is expecting to be fully certified in the new year.

Shop in a box

For those who hate shopping, one business is taking over the tedious task.

Frock Box offers personal stylists who will put together a wardrobe fitting for the customer. The business celebrated its grand opening on Thursday after being a home-based business for the past two years.

The store will offer clothes and accessories, along with personal stylists to help make the shopping experience easier.

Frock Box also operates online, where people can create their own profile and wardrobe budget. Personal stylists will then create an outfit based on the profile and send it in the mail each month.

The business is located at #105, 5 Rowland Crescent. For more information visit:
