Two retailers opening in May, others in works as construction continues
Metro Moncton shoppers can soon expect to find out which retailers are going to be setting up shop in the new Mapleton Power Centre.
Construction is back on schedule and details are being ironed out. Monctonians have been waiting since the development stalled when American-based retailers's expansion plans were slowed by the recession a few years ago.
The developer of the power centre, Ashford Construction president Patrick Gillespie, remained tight-lipped about naming additional stores moving into the 280,000-square-foot shopping centre.
'It's the same as the last time, most of them don't want me to say anything, there are a couple that do,' he said.
Cleve's Source for Sports, currently at a temporary location on Record Street, and Golf Town are well under way to open later this spring.
'Two of them that are opening in May, Cleve's is relocating to a much larger store there and Golf Town are opening,' said Gillespie.
Last July at a Moncton city council meeting, development plans for the Mapleton Power Centre were handed out that identified five retailers as anchors for the shopping complex. Electronics giant Best Buy; housewares chain Bed, Bath and Beyond; pet supplier Petsmart and both Golf Town and Cleve's were named. But Gillespie said that aside from Cleve's and Golf Town, not all of the stores are ready to make announcements until they have an anticipated opening date.
The article does confirm that there will be a couple of restaurants as part of the development. The article does talk about PetSmart, Bed Bath & Beyond and Best Buy. The developer would not confirm these stores, but would not deny them either.
We have good evidence that both PetSmart and BB&B are coming. Best Buy remains a bit of a mystery but I remain confident that they are coming too.
