|Disney store returns to Winnipeg|
The closure of Zellers and the desire of H&M to occupy a large section of the main floor triggered $49 million of upgrades. Some shops have been moved around while dozens of new shops have been banging at the door to get in. The 114,000 renovation is a massive investment. Polo Park owners wisely decided to re-create the old corridor to the outside exit and sub-divide the space into 22 stores. This represents the most stores added since the second floor was added in 1986.
As mentioned here, Fossil and Anthropologie are some of the new tenants. Zumiez has been mentioned as well.
For the sake of those who may not know some of the retailers, the name of the store and what it sells will be listed below.
Anthropologie: A women's apparel retailer ownded by Urban Outfitters
Urban Outfitters: A retailer of Bohemian and hipster clothing, footware and housewares for men and women. Often gets into controversy for their t-shirts.
Fossil: A retailer of clothing and accessories for men and women.
Nine West: A footwear and and accessories retailer.

This marks the return of Disney store to Winnipeg after five years. Previously, they were in St. Vital Mall. A stumble by the store five years ago saw the company closes many of their stores. They seem to back on track now.
