It's a chain store, people. They have MANY locations. This is not unusual. Ottawa is severely under served by retail (per sq ft per capita), so I would argue it has more to do with a lack of other businesses being agressive more so than Shopper's being overly so...plus who doesn't love Optimum points?
Those Optimum points take forever to collect to any redeemable level for the casual user... This being said, they are starting to wake up to urban formats, and they're slowly starting to pull them off better. The one at Bank & Laurier has too much of the shelving and posters on the windows; the one coming on Rideau Street looks like it will have a full front window.
