I think they are doing a great job with the Avalon Mall. It's going to be much larger once they develop the parking lot area outside of Starbucks. Interested to see what new tenants are on the way as the Mall claims that they have stores on a waitlist wanting in.

I find the updated lighting to be a bit intense. Was talking to one of the kiosk employees at Bell one day and he was saying the same thing that it's a bit hard on the eyes all day. other than that, it's looking nice and the work seems to be moving along at a good pace.

I must agree that it is pretty bright, especially if you are working there all day.

Noticed yesterday that Newfoundland Chocolate Company are setting up in the Torbay Road Mall, next to Home Hardware. They are taking over the space that used to be the dollar store.

Here's mine:

Mountain Warehouse for 3.

Forever 21 for 4.

And the long shot....a relocated Chapter/Indigo for 5.

I'd almost go with a relocated Sportchek/larger Atmosphere location over Mountain Warehouse. Either would be great though.

Not sure if it means anything or not but in many of the original concept drawings of the mall renovations and expansion, it shows a book store that looks kinda large. Could they be trying to woo Indigo to move down from up the road perhaps?

Forever 21 are in trouble, are closing stores, not opening.

This is the floor plan of the new mall expansion, anybody got any guesses for whats going where?

I'm guessing H&M will be next to Coles (29,540 sq/ft), Banana Republic next to that (15,620 sq/ft), Gap in the 10,000 sq/ft spot, and Old Navy next to the new Winners (25,600 sq/ft).

Was kinda hoping they might bring back a fountain. They are still in vogue in other locations. Wonder why we can't keep a fountain running in St. John's?

There have been many down thru the years. My favourite as a kid, was the old Colonial Building, with the colour changes.

I can’t remember a fountain at the Avalon Mall, only the iconic one at The Village. Was sad to see that one go.

I assume that the Old Navy location will be a second one? I’m sure we can support two of these stores as they seem quite popular.

I saw a comment on Avalon's FB page (on the announcement of the stores) that Old Navy was moving from Stavanger. Don't know what truth there is in this?
Maybe someone should pop in to Old Navy and ask a manager?

So much for that old saying "three things are guaranteed in St. John's: death, taxes and H&M rumours"

A second Old Navy isn't surprising, that brand is doing well. I'm surprised to see a GAP and Banana Republic store opening, they've been closing stores, GAP is not doing well.

They're actually separating Old Navy into it's own entity (company), distancing it from the other brands.
