The vacant area is first being redeveloped, beginning with nearly 100,000 sq. ft. on the first floor.
The release states that Winners, PetSmart, and Dollarama will be opening their doors in the newly-renovated space, with Dollarama expected to open in the fall and the other retailers come spring 2021.
“We are the first shopping centre in Calgary to redevelop retail space of this scale in recent years,” said Jason Bos, General Manager at Southcentre Mall, in the release.
“We strive to introduce retailers that serve our community’s needs and wants. These three new retailers deliver on this goal and reinforce Southcentre’s reputation as an important, local shopping centre with strong community connections.”
The three new retailers are expected to create 150 permanent positions once operational, while the construction phase will create 200 jobs.
Future phases of the redevelopment will see additional businesses open in the upper two floors, with all phases expected to be completed by 2022.
“The redevelopment of this real estate was designed to complment and diversify Southcentre’s existing retail mix,” said Bradley Jones, Head of Retail at Oxford Properties, which owns and manages Southcentre Mall.
“We aim to connect people to exceptional places; Southcentre is a best-in-class shopping centre that will continue serve the community’s needs at large.”
