Polo Park, which is currently in the middle of its biggest renovation project in 28 years, will see various new retailers fill the 90,000 square feet void that previously housed Zellers.
Over a dozen new stores will fit in the new space and its expected to be ready by October 1, 2014 – just in time for Christmas shopping.
Anthropologie, who specializes in women’s clothing, accessories and home decor, will be one of the first tenants in the new space. Canadians who frequently shop the U.S. will be very familiar with this store.
Anthropologie currently operates over 175 retail stores worldwide. Canadian locations include Albert, British Columbia, Ontario and Quebec. The company is based out of Philadelphia and is owned by Urban Outfitters.
Now that the doors are open, let’s hope Winnipeg gets an Urban Outfitters as well!
