Just a small seasonal retailer to fill the space.

The Calendar Club has been open in the old Payless spot for a few months already.

I'm quite surprised that no one here actually knows what's going on there. Is Shoppers actually moving in there?
They've also opened up most of the (newly) drywalled ceiling above the Sask Drive entrance (there's also a drain pipe protruding down below the ceiling line - it definitely wasn't there before they opened the ceiling up. And - as noted - they are doing quite a bit of work inside the former Sears space on the 1st floor.

No chance. This is designed for dense urban downtowns.

You are probably right, but wouldn't it be cool if IKEA opened one of these small stores in the Cornwall Centre?

The new Lush store at Cornwall Centre is disappointing. It is tiny, not but not only that, it is very plain and dull looking. It almost appears to me as if it is just a temporary store for the holiday season.

Every Lush store is tiny, though it does look distinctly temporary. I will say though that over lunch hour when I happen to walk by, it's packed.

It is definitely a pop up shop. They are hoping to stay and either renovate that location into a full Lush store with proper plumbing on the sales floor for a sink or to move to another spot in the new year. And that location is actually larger than some other LUSH stores.

I was assuming this to be the case. I wonder where they could end up moving to more permanently?

Somewhere in the old Sears space? The old Payless spot (calendar club is currently there)? Gap kids?

There are several options for a smallish spot.

Maybe the GAP could be split into 2, or the former Volcom or the former Payless.

It is nice to see the investment they made in the place.

Last I heard Shoppers wanted to move but did not want to pay for the cost of moving.
Do you mean swing space for SaskPower? They have announced a head office renovation. I don't believe anything major is planned for SaskTel head office.

SaskPower is undergoing a lot of office consolidation over the next couple of years which is going to require renovations to several of their properties. Not just their HO, but also the Financial Building (2101 Scarth Street) and the research facility at the Saskatchewan Science Centre. I noticed last week that all of the windows on one of the floors (6th or 7th floor?) on the north side of the HO have been removed and are covered with plywood.

I thought I would attach the link to the story from saskpower.com if anyone would like to read it again.

Hopefully SGI will announce something similar for their head office.
