The picture is not of the facade facing the street, it's the part that will face the parking area.
Sadly, it looks liek the houses were the location on the new store:
and gone in two days
So what will the facade facing the street looked like when all is said and done?
I have no idea. going by the render, Ridge Ave is on the far right of the image(The cube next to the tiny windows), so it could be a brick wall or another entrence...
So it looks like the new store WON'T be at the sidewalk, as the houses have been replace with parking:
Bricks, mortar and memories as Stanley's expansion gets underway
"The new building will have the wide, low profile and brick facade, but will sit perpendicular to Ridge Avenue, lessening its impact along the street. A temporary parking lot will be set up where the houses and garages were, while the new store is built, Jaconski said.
Eventually, the temporary lot will become permanent, with a stormwater retention basin beneath. The last part of the project will see the current building demolished."
Like how lessening the impact along the street means parking lot desert along the sidewalk.

I parked across from Stanley's on Wednesday (11/14) while my friend ran into another store. There were 4 guys with cardboard signs around their necks pacing around on the sidewalk, at least two times they wouldn't move to let cars into the driveway. I don't know what kind of protest it was, the writing on their signs was too small.

I am the first to admit that I am the stereotypical clueless girl when it comes to tools /building/renovations, anything a hardware store carries. Whenever I go to Lowes/Home Depot I feel lost and like I am in a foreign country, and rarely get the help I need. I have made a few stops at Stanley's, and every time they have been incredibly welcoming and kind, and very helpful. I have gone in there with the WEIRDest requests and no idea what I was doing, and was never treated like I was crazy haha, and always left with exactly what I needed.
When I first saw signs of construction around the store I was scared it was closing, I am so happy to hear they are successful and expanding. I wish them all the luck
Even if the police where not union, there is't much they can do about legal protest....
I am not sure that blocking entrance to a private business lot qualifies as legal protest.
