H&M Polo Park Cladding Up

On the Main Floor Polo Park
The cladding has gone up and all the rumours about a two floor H&M have been false. The new store slated to open in fall of this year will be 25,000 square feet making the third largest in Canada. Only Toronto's Eaton Centre and Vancouver's Pacific Centre will be larger.

The question of what is going up in the nearly 100,000 square foot Zellers on the second floor is a mystery. Suffice to say though that several stores have been displaced to make way for H&M. Mexx, Dyamite, Garage and Fairweather all closed and relocating somewhere.

In the competition to attract shoppers, malls are always looking to re-fresh things. St. Vital Mall went through and extensive re-modelling on the inside the brighten their look. Grant Park Mall is almost complete in its mission to keep Target happy in their new home with a full mall upgrade.

There will be further announcements to be sure in regards to Polo Park and what goes up in the old Zellers.

Lastly, Sears still hangs on my their fingers. This could be the last year for the store in Polo Park if they can't turn things around.
