Hey folks, some exciting shopping news for Winnipeg. We’ve know for awhile that H&M was coming to Polo Park this fall. And if you’ve been to the mall lately you can guess that it will possibly cover two floors on the wing nearest to Hudson’s Bay but close to centre court. Today Polo Park’s Facebook page announced several stores that will be joining the H&M opening in the fall. Here is the quote from their website:
We are pleased to confirm that Urban Outfitters and Anthropolgie will be opening their first stores at Polo Park later this year, a first for the Winnipeg market. They join H&M, who previously announced the opening their first Winnipeg store this fall. New retailers to the shopping centre mix also include Nine West, Thomas Sabo, Fossil, Journeys, WATCH IT! and Pandora.
The website goes on to say this redevelopment will cost $49 million and add 114,000 square feet of new retail space with 25,000 square feet going to H&M. They will also be adding a mall entrance where the old Zellers entrance used to be and 370 feet of new skylights in the new area. The Facebook page also mentions The Disney Store returning to Winnipeg as part of this redevelopment. Wow! This is super exciting news for Winnipeg. Pair this with the news earlier this year that an outlet mall is coming to Winnipeg in 2017 by the new IKEA and we are finally becoming a shopping destination along with other major Canadian cities.
What stores are you excited about? Any that you think still need to come to Winnipeg? Happy Shopping!
