Marshalls and HomeSense have set April 18, 2017 as the date they open at Kildonan Place. The old Target has been transformed into a new wing of the expanded mall. The new stores will be accessible from inside the mall.
A new mall common area is being built at the same time as the rest of the mall’s renovations. HomeSense will lease 21,000 square feet and Marshalls has 24,000 square feet. Original draft of the plans listed H&M coming as well but nothing to report on that sore at the moment.
MasterMind Toys, West 49 and Cutting Edge Cutlery Co. will also be opening in the months ahead.
Nearly all the major malls in Winnipeg have seen major renovations of the past three years. The closure of Zellers, Target, Kmart and some Safeway and Sobey’s locations has caused massive changes in the shopping landscape.
Expect a flurry of other mall announcements in the months ahead.
