Current HOURS 

Tuesday to Saturday  10-5

This is our family business and sometimes family commitments, illness or weather may impact these hours. Any changes will be posted on our social media accounts @trainyardstore



53 Portland Street Downtown Dartmouth, NS  B2Y 1H1 

Our address is 53 Portland Street, but our entrance is actually located just OFF of Portland Street in the private parking lot between The Portland Street Creperie & New Scotland Yard Emporium. If you’ve found the Lawtons or RBC we are directly between across the street. We’re also accessible by crossing the parking lot from Queen Street. See below for parking information!

When the weather cooperates we have our sandwich board out on the street, but your best bet is to look for our bright blue pillars! 

If you’re coming up from the Ferry, both Queen Street & Alderney will bring you to us! 



This is the best way to reach us during open hours, especially if you are looking for a specific item!
