Good stuff! I'd like to know some of the new tenants - Avalon Mall must have some already leased. 32 new spots is a lot!

Nice! I predicted Starbucks would be moving to be closer to one of the new entrances. Be interesting to see who else is lined up.

One of the photos shows what looks to be:

Steve Madden; Levis; Indigo (Coles upgrade?); Tommy Hilfiger. Sneak peak of future openings??

From floor layout it could be view looking from new Lindt location, with new mall entrance on right. According to Indigo website, large format stores average over 20,000 square feet.

The website for a new archery lounge just launched: https://narrowsarchery.ca will be opening upstairs from Jack Axes on Water Street. I had no idea this was even coming but it's something I'd definitely be interested in checking out.

Yeah, not sure if the pictures are generic or not. To me, at least, they must have some of the spaces leased. That's a lot of empty space. Winner's will be set up in a ghost town.

I don't see Starbucks on the layout, do we know exactly where it's going? As well, I haven't heard any time lines.

If Indigo is opening in there I wonder what will happen with the space on Kenmount.. they won't keep that open with a new large store in the Mall.

Coles is also owned by the same company. If Indigo does open in the mall I could see that store closing for sure. The Chapters might stay open - not sure if its a Best Buy/Futureshop situation.

Hey guys,
I would suggest you take any concept pics of what the Avalon Mall concept drawings with the stores in place with a grain of salt. These are just concept drawings to suggest what could be. Nothing is set in stone. Believe me, if Indigo were moving to the mall, I am sure they would announce it big time. All of the names on the concepts drawings are just suggestions. Nothing more.

You never know though. Perhaps Crombie Reit will offer to purchase the Chapters building and then offer to move them into the mall. Crombie already owns most of the surrounding real estate right up to the Chapters building anyway.

Looks like The Rec Room is opening tommorow:
https://www.thetelegram.com/business...-johns-302628/

Quote:
It’s worth noting, as well, that the Rec Room obtained a recreational liquor license, meaning patrons are free to move about the entire facility — not just the bar and dining area — with their alcoholic beverages.

The Rec Room opens to the public this Thursday. Hours of operation for the first week are 3 p.m. until close, which is dependent on how busy it is. After the first week, regular hours of operation 11 a.m. until close. Initial demand is expected to be quite high, so Cineplex officials are strongly advising potential guests to make a reservation.

An official grand opening is set for mid-May.

Yes, these are just concept drawings. Obviously, they must have some bigger tenants lined up to do such an expansion. As for the timeline, Winners/Homesense is opening August 1st, along with the new mall entrance next to it. This entrance will be needed as the rest other 2 entrances in the inner parking lot will be closed to make way for the expansion. Some of the steel is going up now. The entire project, last time I heard, will completed in late 2020, with the new tenants in place.

A lot of Coles Stores in BC and Alberta have been renovated and rebranded as Indigo Spirit. Thats what could be happening as its been rolling out the last few years.

I asked at the Costco Optical counter last weekend.

They are told June 27 as new opening day.

I was enquiring about the optical area. She said the new location will have a much larger optical area with more selection.

Looks like the Shoppers Drug Mart on Freshwater/Empire is finally ready to be demolished soon. They have a fence around the building and a temporary medical clinic set up on site.
