I really hope that more mature clothing stores for men and women will come like Banana republic etc.
- The Brick was supposed to be part of the original iteration of the Mapleton Power Centre before it tanked during the recession. I don't know what the current status of the Brick is.
- Opa (Ela) Greek Taverna has expressed strong interest in the Moncton market and there are a couple of available restaurant pads at the Mapleton Centre. No official announcements have been made.
- MEC has more or less stated that they are not interested in Moncton. The new Cleves store however will be a combo "Source for Sports" and "Source for Adventure". Source for Adventure franchises do carry a lot of the same things as MEC would.
- I have never stated that Banana Republic is definitely coming to Moncton. I have just commented on the fact that Champlain Place is working on filling the mall exclusively with upscale national retailers and that I felt that Banana Republic would be a "natural fit".
