I'm wondering what is going to happen to that mall. They did a massive renovation when Zellers folded and added the usual dreck (Dollarama, Ardene). The new seniors complex that is currently under construction and replacing the the old Canadian Tire might give it a jolt of life. They are building a Super C on the ground floor, replacing the current one on the other side of the mall.
For the towels we have a part hippie/part homeless guy driving a converted 60s school bus who parks in the Husky gas station parking lot selling these things haha!

Speaking of dead malls New Jersey’s aborted Xanadu mall is being brought back from the dead by the family that built West Edmonton Mall. Who wouldn’t want to take time from all the sight seeing in NYC to visit a tacky Dubai meets Edmonton megamall that Chris Christie called the ugliest building in the world?

We'll see. Ghermezians have been trying to get this completed for 5 years now. It's 3 years behind schedule. No one is buying into their vision.

Anyone here ever been to North York Sheridan Mall?
Yeah, I sometimes go to the Walmart at Sheridan Mall. It's kind of the immigrant working class mall I had in mind: 1980s decor, stores that sell hip hop wear, discount baby clothing and samosas, and elderly Pakistanis and Jamaicans hanging out in the food court.

I will be sure to leave this place off my itinerary next time I visit NYC.

Fuck the MET, central park, Broadway, the Natural History Museum, the Guggenheim, the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty! I want to go to the Xanadu mall!

Dollarama is going in a mall that has The Bay. This is filling in part of the former Target space; there's still the Sears space to deal with. If Dollarama can locate in that mall, I wouldn't be surprised to see Giant Tiger show up next.

Kingston is going to have about 5 Dollarama locations per 100,000 residents once this one opens.

Also interesting is that Indigo is moving into the mall. They have a big box Chapters store a short drive to the east, which I wouldn't be surprised to see close. Not every day in Canadian retail you see a big box retailer move to a traditional mall.

This may not be Canadian but it gave me a chuckle.

Would it represent a downsizing, I wonder?
