Polo Park 7
Forever 21 store coming to Winnipeg.
The old Safeway location in Polo Park is presently being renovated into one of the lager locations for the store Forever21. As the name suggests, it is a store that is described as a trendy version Le Chateau.
It is the fourth location for the store in Canada and at 38,000 feet is just shy of their large store in Pasadena, California.
The other store coming to the mall is BCBGMAXAZRIA or as it known for short: BCBG. It is a classy dress store from Los Angeles-based French designer Max Azaria.
Another store that I saw this past week close to the Apple store is Skechers, a shoe store.
The Safeway store closed in 2008 and it probably was no mean feat convincing stores to locate off the main corridor. At first it looked like H&M was coming to the mall. However, it seems a good bet they are looking at the stadium site or the IKEA site for their entry to the Winnipeg market.
