Interesting! I thought that, eventually, the building would be torn down with Toys R Us being relocated. It's been pretty much a vacant building for quite some time. I guess Crombie has some longer term plans for it. If so, hopefully a face lift as that building is definitely due for some renovations.

Pretty sure Crombie had plans to renovate Woodgate Plaza and the office building next to it because I read about it on here at some point a while ago.

Not sure if they are still planning on doing it but the render is still on the website:

Ah yes, I remember seeing this render before. Thanks for jogging my memory! Definitely a well needed refresh to what's currently there. That building has looked old and run down for years now.

I understood that Crombie wood be renovating woodgate plaza during the last phase of the Avalon Mall renovation, once that was completed. I think they going to put storefronts all around it. But plans can easily change.

Pier One (amongst other retailers in this speciality sector) have been struggling for quite some time. It seems boutique and specialty stores cannot survive in this retail environment. It tough when facing competition against online giants like Amazon, Wish, Wayfair, etc. that sell basically everything. Call me old fashion but I do have a soft spot for the brick and mortar buildings. Just the evolution of retail I guess.

Another famous brand is struggling and starting to close stores. Victoria's Secret closing a store in a large Calgary mall. I wonder how long the one in Avalon Mall will last?

I couldn’t find anything on the Crombie website but I texted directly to The Brick and they just texted me back saying they will be opening here in 2020.

Seems to me like the Mall is saturated with this type if store...La Vie en Rose, another I'm gapping on and Torrid opening soon. How many stores specializing in drawers do we need? I haven't bought underwear since Sears closed.

New batch of stores annouced by the mall:
- Sport Chek
- Tommy Hillfiger
- SKECHERS
- Michael Hill
- Bikini Village
- The Brick

So another shoe store, a relocated sports store, more jewelry and bikinis...

Torrid isn't just underwear it's plus size clothing in general

Drove up Kenmount today and noticed there is demo work happening on woodgate plaza. Not sure if tearing down or just stripping the exterior at this point.

At one point the ghost of Consumers Distributing was making an appearance there.

They are tearing down about a third of the building.

Anyone know what the deal is with Bouclair? The local store has been closed since the pandemic began, of course, and was listed on the site as temporarily closed. We wanted to buy an item and the shipping was insane so we kept checking the site to see if they were doing curbside here but now it comes up as permanently closed. I can't find any closure announcement anywhere though...
